With ceilings extending 60 feet upwards, this is the focus of elegance at Casa Loma.
Canada's British influence is clear here - Sir Henry Mill Pellatt, owner of the mansion, hoped to welcome the Royal Family here as guests.
It may not be the CN Tower, but climb the stairs to the top of Casa Loma's tower to get a view of downtown Toronto.
Available only every so often, you can enjoy a British high tea in Casa Loma's conservatory and ballroom, and enjoy this classic British tradition!
A stroll around Casa Loma's lovely gardens is the ideal way to top off a day viewing the grand yet cozy house.

There are self-guided tours available in several different languages, as well as guides for the hearing-impaired in English and French.

What people are saying about Casa Loma
We were five from 65+ to 15 years old and Dayna was smiling and ready to assist with anything. She was polite, knowledgeable and professional. I learned things about TO I never knew. Thanks Dayna for a great day. I would recommend your service, Dayna and even do it again myself. Thanks. Barbara
We were picked up on time at our hotel, was a small group of 7 people. Our guide Dana was very friendly and knowledgeable about the city of Toronto. Great way to explore parts of the city we would probably not have found ourselves! Would recommend it.
