Ghosts & Legends of Historic Sydney

Join us on a spine-chilling ghost tour through the haunted streets of the Historic North End of Sydney. Our costumed guides will enthrall you with legendary stories of the ghostly residents of Sydney and area and take you through haunted heritage homes and graveyards that are sure to have you looking over your shoulder. Skeletons in the cellar, bodies under the floorboards, tales of ghostly visions and the location of a triple execution are only a sample of the colourful history of Sydney that awaits you! You never know whom you may encounter on the way.

Tours are available every Thursday evening in July and August. Our 90-minute spine-chilling tour departs at 7:00pm and ends at St. Patrick’s Church Museum, 87 Esplanade, with a cup of teas and traditional Cape Breton sweets. Admission is $13.00 per person and we accept cash or credit cards.. Reservations are required. Ages 10 years and up. To make reservations phone 902-539-1572 and we would be delighted to spook you! By the way, do plan to sleep with the lights on…

Our next Ghost Walk will begin spring 2017,  get ready to be spooked!
