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.

We went with a group and everyone could go at their own pace since there were handheld audios. There is so much to see and hear on this tour! We enjoyed having lunch in the grounds too.

Food and music were Ok but we came to dine in Casa Loma to hear and see more about this Palace. It was a pity that nobody would explain and show us around

We went early to beat the crowds and were glad we did as they also do weddings. By 11am there was a crowd of people blocking most of the exhibits on the first floor. don't forget to walk thru the tunnels but wear comfortable shoes

We enjoyed a visit to Casa Loma, it was however full of school groups shouting and screaming along the corridors. It would be nice to have security or ushers in areas to keep the atmosphere calmer.

Case Loma is such a beautiful place, though as I live in the UK these types of places are two to a penny, so I should be grateful to have such a great history. Cass loma looks old but doesn't have the feel of smell of something that has stood for many hundreds of years. The car museum is fascinating... More

My husband and I weren't thrilled with this tour. The staff is friendly but the tickets are $20 per person and parking is $10. There was a lot to see which is why I gave it 3 stars but we weren't impressed.

The conservatory alone is worth a visit. The room is huge, sunny, marble and remarkable. But then there's the library which I thought, at first, was a ballroom, the views from the back veranda, the two master suites (his and hers) the study with the hidden staircases and much more. This is a nice way to envision a different era,... More

A very unusual castle. Make sure you don't miss the views from the towers! We had a nice snack lunch but were a little annoyed that we were refused tap water.

My wife and I visited recently and my wife is so in love with this castle. It takes you back in time and make you wonder the lifestyle these people enjoyed. Beautiful spot for wedding pictures as well.

We fell in love with the casa's architecture and even more, the pieces of history that is within it's walls. We also watched the short film on the life the castle's owner, Sir Henry Pellatt and his wife, Lady Mary. I think of his love for his wife how it is an everlasting love. Casa Loma is an architectural, historical... More

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
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 after a workout from either running or splurging, many take advantage of the spas and massage parlors Midtown has to offer. Away from the bakeries, boutiques, and glamorous old theaters of the district's center, locals use the weekend to embrace the more suburban feel of Midtown's parks, tennis courts, outdoor markets, and the manicured grounds of Casa Loma, while families indulge the area's state-of-the-art playground and learning facilities. Of course, no high-brow district is complete without a healthy counter-culture: Midtown boasts some of the wildest street art and full-wall graffiti of any neighborhood in Toronto.
