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 loved our visit to Casa Loma. Such beauty and oppulance in this property. Maps and personal audio sets were enough to guide us through at our own pace. A great stop when in Toronto.

We visited as this was part of the City Pass and was highly rated on Trip Advisor. I can honestly say the high rating is well earned as this is quite the special place in Toronto. The building is stunning inside and out and you...More

This castle is very beautiful. It is is very big and contains many rooms with interesting history. Did as part of the hop on hop off bus trip.

Interesting historically but most of the furniture is not original. The owner auctioned it off to pay his debts. The building itself and gardens surrounding it are worth seeing just for the architecture. However, does not come close to the luxurious palaces in Europe.

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.
Can I check luggage while I tour?
