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.

We toured Casa Loma while visiting our daughter and son in law in Toronto. It was the first time we'd been in a castle. It is beautiful. We explored all of it from the main floors to the tunnel underneath and the towers up above and the carriage house. It has a beautiful garden too.

As a resident if Toronto, I've visited the castle many times- on school trips and family outings. Our daughter even got married at Casa Loma. It was truly a fairy-tale wedding! The old castle never loses its charm and beauty. I've recently visited again with my grandchildren and saw things with 'new eyes'. It's still a great, affordable outing that's... More

This is as close as you will get to a castle/historic house in Toronto. If you have been to a lot European cities then it maybe a little of a let down but has some decent history to read and a nice view over the city. Take the tube and walk to it, no need for a taxi.

Great historical spot to visit in Toronto. A couple of hours was just the right amount of time to spend here and see everything.

First of all, we're big movie fans, so this was exceptionally cool to see a filming location for some our favorites including Scott Pilgrim vs. The World and X-Men. There's a neat section in the basement displaying footage of the many movies filmed there. As for the rest of the house, it was a great experience to explore and discover... More

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
Midtown
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.
