Casa Loma

Toronto, Canada
4.6 / 95
The original mansion was built at the beginning of the 20th century for a wealthy businessman, Sir G.M. Pellate. After some time, he sold the castle due to the inability to maintain real estate and pay taxes. Until the 30s. the building was used as a hotel, and then was transferred to the state. The castle was turned into a tourist attraction. It is rented periodically for private events.



It was very busy when I was there on a Monday. The museum is incredible, but it can be hard to navigate the crowds. There are many small rooms, hallways, staircases and it becomes very cramped. I would absolutely suggest checking it out, but be awar.. Read more »

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 an.. Read more »
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 we.. Read more »

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 mor.. Read more »

Not worth the money to be honest. They have removed all the antics and replaced it with modern art. What's the point of visiting a castle if you get to see modern art in it. The special events which they organize throughout the year is a bit int.. Read more »

The castle dwarfed the White House and we were free to explore it on our own. We has access to the "secret" stairways and passages, just as guests there did years ago. It is dignified, without being gaudy, as many European palaces are. The .. Read more »

Casa Loma "Legends of Horror" was good as a one-time only experience. At a whopping $45 a ticket (or $30 on Groupon as I later found out), it is an expensive hour-by-hour and a half self-guided tour. However, there is no nearby parking i.. Read more »
