Awesome experience and a cool piece of history nestled in the heart of Toronto. Get the audio guide - it is free and pretty much mandatory.

Get there early to grab a seat in the viewing area. Even if you can't see the orchestra the setting & music are wonderful.

Go as early as possible or you won't get seats. It was full and overflowing. I would have loved to have had more time to explore but I really enjoyed the well kept grounds and the awesome music!!

The stairways are narrow, be courteous and proceed with caution.

Besides a concert, it is also a dining experiience. Very lovely, but for concert only people, you need to arrive early for a seat in the limited area for the audience.

From Our Editors

Canadian financier, industrialist, and business visionary Sir Henry Pellatt modeled the Casa Loma castle on the style of art and architecture he came to admire when touring similar castles throughout Europe. Today, the structure endures mainly as a testament to the culture and lifestyle of the Toronto elite during early 20th Century. Visitors can tour the grounds on their own or with a group while learning about the family, the Edwardian heritage, and?most importantly?the architecture and history of the landmark castle atop the hill.


The History of Casa Loma

  • 1859: Henry Pellatt was born in Kingston, Ontario

  • 1882?1902: Pellatt became a millionaire by investing in various mining, insurance, land, and electricity prospects

  • 1905: Pellatt was knighted for his military service by the Queen's Own Rifles

  • 1911: Working with Canadian architect E.J. Lennox, Pellatt helped design his dream home?a Medieval-inspired castle

  • 1914?1924: Economic hardships eventually forced Sir Henry and Lady Mary Pellatt to sell Casa Loma

  • 2014: After failed attempts to transform the residence into a hotel, a school, a museum, and an art gallery over the years, Liberty Entertainment Group chose to preserve the historic structure


The Sights of Casa Loma

Self-guided tours of Casa Loma and the surrounding area are available throughout the year. Here are some highlights worth seeing:

  • Great hall on the main floor: This room serves as a focal point within the castle, complete with 60-foot ceilings and sculpted figures adorning the pillars.

  • Sir Henry Pellatt's master suite on the second floor: Mahogany and walnut walls keep with the home's luxuriant spirit. This room also features a hidden compartment beside the fireplace where Sir Henry Pellatt would conceal secret documents.

  • Carriage House and Stables: Connected to Casa Loma by an 800-ft. tunnel which runs 18ft below Austin Terrace. The tunnel features an exhibit of Toronto?s Dark Side, which tells the story in archival photographs of Prohibition, The Depression, The Plague, The Great Toronto Fire, and Toronto?s first plane crash. The carriage house features an Automotive Exhibit featuring vintage automobiles from the early 1900?s.

  • Estate gardens: The five acres of lush flora surrounding Casa Loma showcase ornate sculptures and fountains as well as meticulously tended displays of perennials and a wooded hillside filled with wildflowers, ferns, rhododendrons, and decorative grasses.


The Pellatt Newsreel

To deliver more insight into the Pellatt family's optimistic construction and tragic loss of Casa Loma, the castle screens a 22-minute docudrama on the rise and fall of the estate. Narrated by Colin Mochrie, this docudrama adopts the tone of a 1939 newsreel as it tracks Sir Henry's resounding business successes, followed by his gradual financial undoing.
