In July 2015 I spent 3 days in Toronto, Canada on my own. I bought a Toronto City Pass to see the 5 major attractions Toronto has to offer, sadly the Zoo was too far out of the City in the limited time I had to visit, but I did manage to get to visit Casa Loma once I'd navigated the transport system from near the airport, where I was staying, by bus and train, I found Casa Loma easily, the directions in the City Pass were very helpful. Although it did involve a medium length walk up hill from the subway, but as you can see it was a beautiful walk. I was pleasantly surprised by the amount of greenery in Toronto.
The house is truly spectacular and you can read more about the history of it here.
The views of Toronto were stunning and you can see how green it all is.
The gardens were visible from all the windows over 3 floors.
You can see the CN Tower from the gardens.
It is summer in June and the flowers were in full bloom.
This archway led back into the house to the conservatory, which was spectacular.
After a long walk through tunnels in the basement and passing through stables and garages I discovered the potting shed.
You can see how far away the house is from the potting shed.
I had the most amazing time in Toronto, which was part of a visit to see my very dear Penfriend Catherine or AlwaysARedhead on Social Media. I'd love to visit Canada again and see more of the beautiful countryside, but sadly it was a once in a life time trip. You can read more about the castle itself over here.
Next weeks post is Camping in the Wild in Algonquin and once I've finished all the posts I'll be linking them all up.
