We went for the escape Casa Loma escape room, and oh my goodness was it so much fun. It's a bit on the pricier side for an escape room but it was amazing and worth every penny. We even escaped!

Historic place, the unique castle in North America, according to them. Dozens of rooms, decorated from that time. Worth It.

Explored for like 3 hours. Great place for photos. You can climb all the way to the top of the tower and see the city.

Something for everyone here, and I was surprised by how well it compared to historic houses that I have visited in Europe.

Former residence of Sir Henry Mill Pellatt and now a museum. It is one of Toronto's most famous landmarks. Very beautiful interiors and garden. The place has a very interesting history.

By day, you can explore the many extravagant rooms and halls. By night, let loose and try out one of the escape games. I was so impressed by the actors that carried out the theme beautifully. During October, the castle is also open at night for a Halloween theme of terror through the tunnels.

I was never attracted to Casa Loma. Why would I want to visit a fake Toronto castle? When my boyfriend was visiting from Ireland, he was very adamant about checking it out so I decided to bite my tongue and come along. WOW! The grounds are beautiful. Firstly, it's easily accessible via Dupont Station. More importantly, it's easily accessible via bicycle. There are towers, stables and secret passages. Most importantly there are gardens. The gardens are gorgeous!! You will feel like you are in the Secret Garden, except it's not so secret because you'll be surrounded by dozens of tourists glued to their cameras. I would came here on a weekday because there would probably be less people. Bring a book and read in the cafe that overlooks the beautiful fountain and flowers!

This place is great for the history buff or just a day out with the fam! Many a film has been filmed here, and am proud to say that I've been here to see many a film filmed here. And no, it's not haunted.

Casa Loma is the closest building to a castle. It's home to countless pieces of furniture, artwork, and fun events as well. There are activities happening at Casa Loma every season, including children's activities, concerts, and of course private events, such as weddings.

Admit it; we all have that dream where we become an eccentric millionaire and build some giant, medieval-style castle home on top of a hill outside our city, decorating it with thrones and suits of armor and paintings depicting heroic journeys. (Um, right?) That's just what Sir Henry Pellatt did almost a century ago. He built a home with turrets, gilded furniture and secret passageways fit for a king.

I love places like this: Hearst Castle, Castello di Amorosa, the documentary Queen of Versailles, etc. You get to see the inner workings of someone's biggest dreams and fantasies. Sir Pellatt's dream was to host royalty, and he build a bedroom just for that purpose (he did have British nobility stay, but never official royalty). Plus, suits of armor are just cool.

Excellent place to go to if visiting the area. Scottish Tower offers a view of Toronto. A must see.

One of the top tourist attractions in Toronto and well worth it. Especially liked the tunnel. Take the time and go see this place.

Kind of neat, but overpriced and overrated. If you can get a deal, check it out; don't pay full cost.

A castle in mid-town toronto. Can you imagine? With five acres of gardens, an underground tunnel that connects to the hunting lodge and the stables. Open for visitors, and can even climb the towers!

That is one huge mansion, really cool but not the kind of thing I'd go often.

Such a nice place to visit! I didn't expect it to be that pleasant, but it was. My favorite thing I did in Toronto. Very beautiful and instructive, I would definately recommend to visit that beautiful mansion if you go to Toronto.
