Ghost Walks

Did you know that lurking spirits cause the shivers one experiences when hearing ghost stories? Don't believe it? Reserve your spot on one of our Ghost Walks and explore the history and haunted tales of Downtown St. Catharines. These guided tours will delve into the haunted tales of the past and the present day while also sharing historical commentary about the unique buildings and happenings in our downtown. Walks are about 75 minutes in length and we walk at an easy comfortable pace. All Ghost Walks depart from the King Street doors of Market Square (91 King Street).

Advance tickets are required and may be purchased online (see below) or at the St. Catharines Downtown Association office, 80 King Street, main floor, St. Catharines, during office hours Monday to Friday 8:30 to 4:30 (cash only for in-person ticket sales).  Please phone (905) 685-8424 for more information, contact us by email or see link below to order tickets online.

We offer two different routes: Tour A and Tour B. The tour being offered on any given date will depend on guide avaiability. Tour A is our original ghost walk route which visits site along Church Street and Yates Street. This tour starts at Market Square and ends at the old Merritt House on Yates Street, a distance of 1.6 km. The walk back to Market Square is approximately 0.7 km.  Tour B travels along parts of King Street, Queen Street and St. Paul Street, a distance of 1.5 km. Tour B is wheelchair accessible. PLEASE NOTE - Only Tour A will be offered up to and including October 5, 2017.

Tickets are $10.00 each. Group rates and private tours are available - great idea for an office or group outing!

Private Tours can be arranged at a time that suits your group, subject to guide availability. Price of private tour $175.00 (up to a maximum of 25 guests).
