About This Experience

Journey into the haunted history of the Halifax Citadel National Historic Site; a tour filled with chilling ghost stories and tales of the unexplained.

Climb to the top of The Halifax Citadel National Historic Site and meet your historically costumed guide on the drawbridge at the main gate. For 70 minutes, you’ll be led by candlelight through tunnels, prison cells, and restricted areas of Canada’s most haunted historic site, to hear true accounts of unexplained events in their actual locations.


The Citadel gate swings open to reveal an tour guide in full period uniform standing on the drawbridge holding a glowing lantern aloft in the deepening twilight. He silently beckons for you to follow him across the drawbridge, through the arched stone gate and into the darkness of the fort that has dominated Halifax Harbour since 1749.

Descending by candlelight through dimly lit passageways toward shadowy inner chambers, you stay close to your guide. Breathlessly anticipating what sinister apparition might lurk around each corner, you pass through ditches, along cobblestone alleys and over eerie ramparts. Then, descend into dark tunnels toward prison cells that once housed hapless soldiers convicted of minor offences. You’re on a nocturnal journey into the haunted history of Halifax Citadel that recounts many a ghost story, tales of the unexplained, and all recounted in chilling detail.
