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.

My husband and I visited Casa Loma and throughly enjoyed learning the history and seeing the castle. We were a little disappointed in the fact the tunnels and vintage car area were closed because they are preparing for the Halloween activity.

This place is beautiful & so state of the art for its time. I'm really glad I took the time to go here. One needs a full 2-3 hours to really see everything it has to offer.

Attended a reception here for a conference my husband was attending. This is a beautiful castle and has beautiful gardens in back. Gorgeous rooms. I didn't get to go thru entire castle, but understand you can do a self-guided tour w/ audio.

It's not possible to miss this house, and that was the original intention. Set on a commanding plot overlooking Toronto with its turrets and towers of different styles, Sir Henry Pellatt's Cast Loma is certainly imposing. Its' American cousins are the mansions of Newport. The...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
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.
