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.

Beauty and Beast exhibition is great and unique experience before the movie come on the big screen. The only drawback is the price.

I went to the opening of the Family Day weekend event at Casa Loma where the costumes from Disney's upcoming film "Beauty and the Beast" were on display and themed activities were offered to the public. Casa Loma was the perfect venue for this event for all ages. If you are a fan of the movie, don't miss it! as... More

Casa Loma is one of the best tourist attractions in Toronto. The audio tour is a great way to tour as it provides a lot of historical context and discusses Sir Henry Pellatt's financial struggles in building the house. The Conservatory on the first floor is also very nice, and the house as a whole is very intricately planned. One... More

Came here for the Halloween Horror Nights, it was amazing. Definitely spooky and the bar and restaurant half-way through was definitely helpful. My only regret is we bought the city pass, and as it was our last day in Toronto we figured we could split it between Casa Loma and the Toronto Zoo, by the time we finished the Zoo,... More

Was here for a wedding and it was breathtaking! The architecture, stained glass, marble floors, and massive bronze doors are a feast for the eyes. A castle in the city thats worth the visit!

I think I can called it as Castle. It's too big! Every part that you got inside there you can fell the history and I'm not talking about the living rooms, dining rooms, etc. You can go to the towers and walk inside the roof structure, beside this there an amazing tunnel that surround the entire Castle, there you can...

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.
