Overview

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.

Spent a wonderful 3 hours touring this castle in the city. Amazing rooms, history and views of the skyline. If staying at a hotel ask concierge for discount tickets ($27 instead of $30). Easily accessible from subway and bus. Great history. Many movies filmed there.

Even though I've been to Toronto many times, I've never had a chance to visit Casa Loma. It's indeed a beautiful place to visit. The house is fairly large and there is a lot to see, you can climb the towers and see the antique...More

This was an interesting house/ castle to explore. While not technically a royal castle it does house a museum for the Queen's soldiers, and has two towers you can climb in good weather. There are free audio guides which are helpful to get extra information.

A bit if a trek but worth the effort. A fascinating house and a more fascinating person who had the vision and energy to built it - Sir Henry Pellet.

You can purchase on the day of the visit, although if you purchase in advance it would save you time

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.
