Who LOVES history? Well, did you know that Toronto actually has a CASTLE? Yep! Casa Loma is a majestic castle, that dates back to the early 1910's.
It's where you can step back in time to European splendour and elegance! It was once home to Sit Henry Pallatt, who was a Canadian financier. Inside, you will be able to explore incredibly decorated suites, that will give you a first hand look at what life was like over 100 years ago.
It's a castle, so of course there is an 800ft tunnel! Here, you can experience an exhibit on the Dark Side of Toronto. You can learn of stories of the Depression, and Prohibition, and the Plague, and even the Great Fire of Toronto. Certainly a walk through the city's history!
There are stables, and towers, and incredible 5 acre gardens which are open seasonally. These are a great way to mix up your indoor adventure with outdoor walks in nature.
There are 60ft high ceilings in the Great Hall, with amazing hand carved pillars. There is a library filled with old and wonderful books.
You can explore the dining room, where you can just imagine the sounds and scents that would have been felt at the height of its time. You can even visit the bathrooms, and bedrooms, and the wine cellar with over 1800 bottles!
Don't miss the fun events they hold across the year, including fun Halloween experiences!
History is waiting to be uncovered at Casa Loma, where the whole family can step back in time, and really enjoy this castle experience!
