Since 1995 the Kingston Haunted Walk, founded in 1995 by Glen Shackleton (Ghost Historian) has thrilled visitors and residents alike with an evening’s stroll down Kingston’s “spooky lane”.
These are guided walking tours, focusing on Kingston’s ghost stories and peculiar history.
At evening or sometimes even later, these lantern-lit tours provide the perfect atmosphere for a good ghost yarn.
It’s a 90 minute feast on Kingston’s sometimes sordid past.
It takes you through Kingston’s old Sydenham Ward, haunted hotels, hidden burial grounds, tales of grave-robbing and crypt raiding, the hangings at the old courthouse, and the haunted courtyard.
Reservations are recommended. Tickets are available at the ticket office, 200 Ontario Street in the lobby of the Prince George Hotel downtown Kingston, across from the Tourist Information Office.
