Casa Loma is one of Toronto’s top tourist attractions and hospitality venues. Each year over 650,000 visitors tour Casa Loma and the estate gardens. A perfect backdrop for special occasions, the venue also plays host to more than 350 private events annually. The unique architecture has also made it a highly desirable location for film, television, and photo shoots.

Completed in 1914, it took three hundred men nearly three years to complete the almost 200,000 square foot castle. Situated on five acres, it was once the largest private residence in Canada, with ninety-eight rooms designed by architect EJ Lennox, featuring secret passageways, elaborately decorated rooms with authentic period furnishings and breathtaking views of the Toronto skyline from its towers. For more information visit www.casaloma.ca and on TwitterInstagram and Facebook @CasaLomaToronto.
