Casa Loma: Uncover the stories behind the regal facades on an audio walking tour

Duration

clock30 to 40 minutes

Overview

    Take a self-guided audio tour through one of Toronto’s oldest forests. You'll explore the area just west of Casa Loma, Toronto's castle on a hill. In 1910, this area was in high demand because of its grand view of the city. Wealthy industrialists competed for the finest homes by hiring the best architects. This easy walk will take you to some of the neighbourhood’s most famous houses and tell you about the characters who inhabited them.

    Some of the highlights along the way include:

    • Discovering the story behind the famed Neilson house and the Maclean's magazine house.
    • Hearing about Marshall McLuhan and the origins of the phrase “global village”
    • Finding out about the early settlers of Casa Loma
    • Seeing where Ernest Hemingway got his start as a writer
    • Walking along the oldest beachfront in the city

    This 30 minute tour starts at Casa Loma and finishes at St. Clair West subway station. Download the VoiceMap app, then download the tour and start it whenever you're ready.
