The Haunted Walk of Ottawa
For a unique spin on Ottawa’s past, join the cloaked guides of The Haunted Walk of Ottawa for spooky strolls through downtown.
The Original Haunted Walk tour shares ghost stories about the Bytown Museum, the iconic Fairmont Château Laurier and even a haunted high school. Or take the Ghosts and the Gallows tour of the Old Carleton County Jail to see death row and learn what a prisoner’s daily life was like. The building, which is said to be one of the most haunted in North America, is now the HI-Ottawa Jail Hostel! Tours are available in English and French and depart from the Haunted Walk Ticket Office at the corner of Sparks Street and Elgin Street.
