Ottawa: Haunted Night Walking Tour

1. Ottawa: Haunted Night Walking Tour

Experience Ottawa like never before on a 75-minute Original Haunted Walk. Spend an evening with fascinating tour guides who are chosen from the best local storytellers and have a passion for sharing the unexpected side of Canada's capital city.  On the Original Haunted Walk, your expert cloaked guide will reveal to you their favorite ghost stories from the Downtown Ottawa area and lead you by lantern light to some of the city's most well-known haunted spots. Visit locations such as the Fairmont Château Laurier, Grant House, and Ottawa’s haunted high school. A favorite stop is the haunted Bytown Museum where many of the guides have had their own experiences to share. You’ll never look at the city and these buildings the same again.  After being led through the streets of Downtown Ottawa, your guide can walk you back to the start location or leave you to enjoy a (sleepless) night in the city.

Ottawa: Haunted Carleton County Jail Tour

2. Ottawa: Haunted Carleton County Jail Tour

Come along on a frightening tour of the 19th-century Carleton County Jail, where you will meet your cloaked and lantern-carrying guide on a scary storytelling journey through the facilities. Find your way around by lantern light and enter Ottawa’s famous haunted jail, which now functions as a hostel. See some of the intact jail areas, which once housed some of the city's most infamous criminals, before they were hanged on the on-site gallows. Some say that their souls still haunt the site. Visit the jail's eeriest spots as your guide shares spooky stories of levitating coins and faceless ghosts. Learn about the gruesome assassination of Thomas D'Arcy McGee and tour the cellblocks where inmates were once imprisoned. Lastly, retrace the final footsteps of the condemned as you walk from Death Row to the last working gallows in Canada.

Really enjoyed our experience. The tour was a good length and we were able to bring along our baby in a stroller. Our guide was knowledgeable and a pleasure to listen to.

Liz is a great storyteller. She kept us on our toes. I did the night tour, which added more to the experience compared to the day tour.
