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.

The best thing about the castle is that you get full access to it! Visit the tunnels, top of the towers, private rooms, hidden passages, library and more. Visit early or get your tickets prior hand(through citypass) as it will be crowded during the summer...More

This place is beautiful & full of history but the city needs to get a better idea of arranging tours or something. We went in July & I'm sure that's probably peak tourism season & that's what would make offering a better organized tour a...More

If Casa Loma were in Europe, it wouldn't be worth exploring, but the fact that it's in the middle of Toronto and is one of a kind for the area makes it well worth the price of admission. It's basically a large castle you can...More

We went to Casa Loma when it opened on Sunday at 9:30am--this was good to do bc it gets crowded. If you have the city pass booklet, you can go right in. We didn't have this but we were at the start of the line...More

I thought it wouldn't be too bad here at 10:30 am on a Friday, but by 11 there were just too many people. There were lines for the audio tour devices, the tunnels, to ascend the spires, etc. We even had to wait to enter...More

I didn't take a tour or get the audio guide- just read the signs. If I were to do it differently, I would watch the movie (basement) first and then tour house. Regardless - it was excellent! Got there around 11:00 and was already crowded...More

We arrived at Casa Loma about one hour after the doors opened for the day. We should have arrived earlier! The home was very crowded, which kept us from enjoying some of the architecture and decor on display. I highly recommend that anyone with an...More

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
arms balancing lattes in paper cups as they travel
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
Revision are always a hub of outdoor activity, and

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