This is a fascinating piece of Toronto history! I was lucky enough to participate in the afternoon tea at the Conservatory which added to the allure and vibe of the castle. The tunnel leading to the garage and stables was a nice cool walk, and the plaques gave just enough information into the lives of those that lived and worked at Casa Loma. So many different films were filmed there, and it was neat to see those locations. A must if you have the time!
Although this isn't an actual authentic medieval castle. It was built in 20th century, but with very thorough thinking about styling and details. The story of the owner is also interesting and touching. So go take an audio guide and enjoy the lovely interiors of a once private house. As a bonus - you can visit professor Xavier school of X-men corridors and some other movies. If you happen to go to the local cafe, choose a place in the center of the alcove - they have some nice music playing in there.
Very interesting place to visit with a very fascinating history. Be warned it definitely earns the title of 'castle' so be ready to do a lot of walking. Definitely allocate a minimum of 2 hours to visit, preferably 3. It is heated in the winters so that's nice, and it definitely rewards the visitors willing to take their time exploring every nook and cranny of the sprawling mansion.
What a great and sad story Casa Loma is for Toronto. Just great that Toronto decided to share the story with the world. Great part of history here. Many firsts thanks to the man who built this. Really liked the audio guide that was included and offered in several languages. It was better than I had expected, so that was great for me, because I'm generally not a fan of museum type outings. This was different because I could get a real sense of living there. If you haven't been, just go. Life is short.
Beautiful historical home. The decorations for Christmas definitely made it a much more enjoyable experience. It was nice to see so much of the castle and not have a lot of closed off areas. The access to go all the way up in the towers was awesome and there is a beautiful view from the top of the Norman Tower. The tunnel to the stables was awesome and again the holiday decorations were top notch. I would definitely recommend!!

I recently had the pleasure of providing elegant lounge furniture and other accents from my rental collection for a wedding at the beautiful Casa Loma. What a lovely choice for such a special day with gardens that are stunning, well manicured and cared for. Great attention to detail and wonderful service was evident in their event planning department.
I highly recommend Casa Loma and their team as a location for your special event.
