Casa Loma, one of Toronto’s premier tourist attractions, is visited by tourists, year-round.
Step back in time as you explore the former estate of Sir Henry Pellatt, a prominent Toronto financier, industrialist and military man.
An unabashed romantic, Sir Henry engaged the noted architect E.J. Lennox to help him realize a life-long dream - the creation of a ‘medieval’ castle on the brow of a hill overlooking Toronto. Begun in 1911, it took 300 men nearly 3 years to complete and cost $ 3,500,000 at that time.
Sir Henry enjoyed Casa Loma for less than ten years before financial misfortune forced him to abandon his castle home. Today this unique piece of Canadian history is open daily as a tourist attraction and hospitality venue.
Casa Loma is owned by the City of Toronto and has been developed and operated by the Kiwanis Club of Casa Loma since 1937. Proceeds from the operation of Casa Loma support a wide range of the Kiwanis Club’s charitable works.
The tour of the castle is self-guided. Visitors can experience the castle at their leisure with the aid of a state of the art digital audio guide and floor plan brochure. Casa Loma provides audio guides and tour brochures in the following eight languages: English, French, German, Japanese, Mandarin, Korean, Italian and Spanish.
The enchanting Casa Loma Gardens are open May through October and provide visitors with an opportunity to stroll through five acres of formal and informal specialty areas alive with colour and fragrance.
Casa Loma produces special Family events for the Christmas, Halloween and Spring Break periods and produces an annual Renaissance Festival each July.
Sir Henry’s Cafe, Gift Shop and parking (for a fee) are conveniently located on site. Casa Loma is open daily from 9:30 a.m. - 5:00 p.m. Last admission at 4:00 p.m.
