The Halifax Citadel Ghost Tour

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 and prison cells, and hear true accounts of unexplained events in their actual locations.


In 2021, ghost tours run on Fridays and Saturdays between Friday, July 9 and Saturday, November 6.


Ghost tours begin at 8:30 pm, and last for approximately 70 minutes.


Tours leave from the front gate of the Halifax Citadel National Historic Site.
