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.

  • Great place to visit for locals and tourists. Lookout for annual events which are always so well organized in my experience. Even better are special one-time events such as their Lord of the Rings Exhibit so many moons ago. That was so creative and dreamy I will never forget it. I also went to one of their Dracula theatre shows for my birthday one year and it was so much fun! BTW Legends of Horror is not for the faint of heart!
  • I’ve come to Casa Loma for many events. My favourite has to be high tea. You get to roam the castle before hand and then sit for tea. The finger foods were a wide range which is great. Desserts were also a wide variety, but the best part is more desserts were handed out and your able to chose from them all. There was also a harpist, and she played the violin if it was your birthday! So nice.
  • Beautiful place. Nice people, playing different Christmas personalities. Very good music, friendly staff. Some good dancing, great Fireman show. Good food, and especially spicy drinks. Recommend to go there. Maybe I will go second time.This post is not about Casa Loma itself,but only about the Christmas celebration in this place.
  • More than the castle and its architecture, I enjoyed the history of the castle presented in a documentary movie in the basement. So, be sure to check that out which is included in your ticket. Another perk is that you get audio guide devices which were very cool. The ones that we got did not have headphones so you had to hold them like you are speaking on the phone, but I saw some other people with devices having headphones. The most enjoyable part of the experience was that there are 2 towers that you had to climb very narrow stairs to reach the top. They were decorated and designed for escape room game purposes which was fun to see. Overall, it was a very pleasant experience.
  • This place was awesome! My friends and I went on a Sunday and although it was busy we never felt rushed. There is so much to see, and so many little passageways that it never feels uninteresting. The documentary was actually super informative so I highly recommend that. It's held in what was to be the indoor pool. The tunnel to the stables was really neat because they were playing 20s jazz throughout which gave it a really cool atmosphere. We spent hours here and it still didn't feel like long enough. Highly recommended.
