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 is one of the wonders of Toronto. So elegant and stately. My first visit and I was blown away. Hard to believe in a day from years ago that they were able to construct such a masterpiece when they really didn't have any modern...More

I am not convinced that this is an attraction for children as an appreciation is required of the architecture and technical innovations that were used when the place was built. The audio guide was very good and further enhance the history of the estate.

A fantastic experience to visit this house. It was a pity we visited on a very wet day which meant we could not see the grounds to advantage.

Casa Loma is a little out of the centre, easily accessible via the Hop on Hop off bus. The grounds a beautiful and the castle is very nice. There is an audio you can take around the grounds.

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

I would say 2 to 3 hours is a nice leisurely pace. They have a restaurant down stairs to take a break, as well as a small theater that shows a clip about the history of the castle where y o u can also sit.
