Canada's majestic castle and Toronto’s premier historic attraction. In 1911, Sir Henry Pellatt engaged noted architect E.J. Lennox to help him realize a lifelong dream,the creation of an Edwardian castle on the top of a hill overlooking Toronto. It took 300 men nearly three years to complete the nearly to 200,000 square foot castle at a cost $3,500,000 (at the time). Situated on 5 acres, Casa Loma was the largest private residence in Canada. Sir Henry Pellatt with his wife Lady Mary enjoyed Casa Loma for less than ten years before financial misfortune forced him to abandon his home. The tour of the castle is self-guided. Visitors can experience the castle at their leisure with the aid of multimedia audio guides.

This facility is defiantly a tourist site. There is no "tour", just hundreds of people turned loose in the building to push and shove aimlessly as they try to get the best angle for their selfie. Not enough audio guides available, and the few staff...More

Interesting. Too crowded to enjoy inside and terrace restaurant. Wanted more views of the castle from the grounds. Uphill walk from bus tour stop. Not very accessible.

Casa Loma is a beautiful location to visit. The history, detail and love that was put into this building is overwhelming. We visited on a Saturday and they host weddings in the conservatory. Beautiful stop for a vacation in the city.

Midtown is a dynamic part of Toronto with some of its
most stylish high-rise residences and heritage
buildings. The area sees busy shoppers with bag-laden

from one luxury brand to the next, taking advantage of
the proximity of high-end shops. The reflecting pools,
jogging trails, and nature treks of the Rosehill

Parking is available right on site for a flat fee. It is a very short walk to the main door.
