Overview
More
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.

Was beautifully decorated for Christmas and we had a wonderful time. We used the guided tour (audio) so it was easier to understand the history of the castle while walking around. Highly recommend it.

A must see in Toronto, amazing views from the towers. Be sure to wear comfortable shoes, lots of narrow stair cases to climb but a very neat experience. Definitely will go back to try the escape room.

Such a terrific site to visit. Beautiful location and the building is wonderfully kept. Used in multiple movies many rooms will look familiar. Opulence at its best. Nice to see the detailed wood work and is completely worth the audio tour for the added information....More

It still amazes me that there's such a beautiful property in the heart of Toronto. I've been there in the winter when they were filming a TV show and when they had a display of Beauty and the Beast. I've also been there in the...More

What a great stop! We visited here the morning before our plane took off, so we were on a tight schedule. Wish we had more time! Saw pretty much everything in 2 hours, but would have liked more time to really get more in depth....More

It is a little pricey, but the antique cars are pretty cool, as well as the movie posters downstairs reminding you how many films have been filmed here. The castle itself is like any other in North America, but if you like early turn of...More

Almost like stepping back in time. Fun to climb to the top of the towers, explore the gardens and tunnel.

The pool in basement was turned into a movie theatre, and they added a good court and displays of movies that were filmed there. Very exciting. Food is typical junk food (pizza, hit dogs, etc.) If you want healthy food I recommend bringing it. A...More

30 CAD for an museum that seems to be Toronto's number one tourust trap. This place did not even as much have a welcome brochure. Asking the staff any questions also proved that it was really just an old huge mansion on the hill that...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

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.
