Ghosts of Stratford Theatrical Walking Tours
True tales of Stratford’s haunted past as researched by Wm. Miller, Esq.
Friday and Saturday evenings at 8:00 p.m. in July, August and early September
The RESIDENTIAL Tour:
Join costumed guides Arabella and Eudora for a stroll through Stratford’s beautiful and historic residential neighbourhoods. Belying the tranquil atmosphere of these streets, the Wyrd sisters will share haunting stories and songs that conjure up the darker side of our city’s past, still seen and felt in the lingering summer twilight.
The DOWNTOWN Tour:
Jimmy and Mary — siblings from the “Dirty 30’s” — guide visitors through Stratford’s haunted downtown core, sharing stories from the city’s founding through the military intervention in the General Strike of 1933. Could your hotel be haunted? Are you likely to encounter strange and inexplicable phenomena over dinner or at the theatre? Find out on selected Friday and Saturday evenings this summer.
GOD’S ACRE Tour:
For nearly 150 years, Euphemia and Edward Elphinstone have enjoyed their evening strolls around Stratford. Accompanied by Edward’s lovely music on Romantic guitar, Effie is always happy to share stories from her beautiful city’s dark and haunted past - including the tale of Stratford’s own Jack the Ripper!
Pubs, Pilsners and SPIRITS TOUR
Selected Thursday evenings in September and October
When the autumn wind is rising and the air is wild with leaves, join us for a tour of Stratford’s historic taverns and hostelries. Along the way, you’ll learn about the tumultuous brewing history of Perth County and hear stories of spirits (of the non-alcoholic variety!) that continue to haunt our beautiful city even today.
Ticket price includes a half-pint of the landlord’s finest at each of three landmark pubs.
Meet your costumed guide at Stratford Tourism, 47 Downie Street, 10 min. prior to tour start time.
Selected evenings at the end of October.
When the dark comes early and the nights are long, join us for this special edition of the Ghosts of Stratford. New characters sharing even more chilling stories, a visit to Avondale Cemetery and a macabre shadow play are highlights of this candlelit walking tour.
