Toronto Castles & Stately Homes
Visit Canada's Majestic Castle, Casa Loma and step back in time to a period of European elegance and splendour. The former home of Canadian financier Sir Henry Pellatt, Canada's foremost castle is complete with decorated suites, secret passages, an 800-foot tunnel, towers, stables, and beautiful 5-acre estate gardens (open May through October). A self-guided digital audio tour in 8 languages (English, French, Japanese, German, Italian, Spanish, Mandarin and Korean) is available.
This Second Empire style home was built in the l870s by Senator George Brown, one of the fathers of Canadian Confederation and founder of The Globe newspaper. The main floor of this impressive home has been restored to how it would have been during the time the Brown family resided here. The museum is also a conference centre.
