Casa Loma, Toronto

(4.1/5 based on 4,600+ reviews on the web)
Constructed at the beginning of the 20th century in the Gothic Revival style, Casa Loma represents the city's only castle. The midtown landmark once served as the formal residence of financier Henry Mill Pellat, known for helping bring hydroelectric power to Toronto. Originally the largest private home in Canada, the grandiose 98-room castle now acts as a museum, often used for wedding ceremonies and movie shoots. Choose between several themed guided tours, or pick up a digital audio guide at the entrance and explore the castle and gardens on your own. Take a look at our Toronto vacation planner to schedule your visit to Casa Loma and learn about what else to see and do during your holiday.

  • Went for the Halloween haunted house. They decorated very well, however didn't really experience the entire house. It offers a remarkable view of the city from the back gardens. Staff are very friendly. There is good amount of parking and prices are reasonable. Totally recommend if you are looking for cool touristy places in the city.
  • Unique Toronto gem. Known to locals as that weird fake "castle" you'd visit for elementary school field trips. Good for visiting tourists who want a good observatory tower with great skyline views, decent food, and some interesting history on Edwardian-era Toronto aristocracy and urban development. Escape tower after the castle closes is actually quite good. Symphony and jazz in the gardens during the summer is also a great decent addition. Worth a visit for those exploring Toronto. Get a CityPass if you want to save cash. There's a lot of staircases and one retro elevator. Gets hot in the summer.
  • Beautiful place to visit and spend the day exploring with the family. Lots of Toronto history from 1920s. You will need almost the whole day to visit all 98 the room in the castle. The luxury that Sir Henry Mill Pellatt lived at that time is breathtaking.
  • Went to Casa Loma for a Escape Game of bootlegger's. Totally recommend it! They have more escape games with other themes but apparently this one is the best and hardest
  • This place is sometimes underrated but it's beautiful. It's a majestic castle with lot of history behind. The guided tours are amazing and it comes in many languages. It has really nice garden where you can enjoy some appetizers. I've been there twice and I would recommend to anyone who likes arts, culture and history.
