I always dreamed of living in a castle. Even just the feeling of stepping on its ground is enough haha! And since I can’t go to England yet, thankfully Canada has its own castle!

Known as “Canada’s castle”, Casa Loma is located in downtown Toronto. Built-in 1900’s, the castle is open for visitors/ tourists. With a vast garden, fountain and numerous rooms, Casa Loma is a must in your Toronto itinerary.

Casa Loma is a self-guided tour. You’ll be given an audio device to listen to. Follow the numbers placed on each room or frames and pressed the number on the device. So you’ll see a lot of visitors focused on listening to their device (like someone is calling them).

There are secret passageways, paintings, photographs of those who lived there and vintage rooms. You can finish the whole tour for 2-3 hours. Depending on your pace of course. No time is set to explore this grandeur palace.

You can bask under the sun when you stay in its beautiful garden. Most visitors stay the most here. Surrounded by bloomed flowers, towering trees, fountain and a glass garden Or get a glimpse of the breathtaking view of Toronto on top.

What I enjoyed the most is creating your souvenir coin. Insert the amount required (in coins) and turn the handle of the machine around. It gets harder to push when it’s almost done. And voila, your souvenir coin will be dropped at the bottom.

Casa Loma is open daily from 9:30 AM – 5 PM. I recommend visiting the castle during spring or summer so the garden is in full bloom.
