Ghostly Walks: St. Ann’s Academy & Beacon Hill Park

Beacon Hill Park

About this Walking Tour of St Ann’s Academy and Beacon Hill Park

Starts at the Visitor Information Centre and heads to the grounds of the Fairmont Empress for the sad tale of Lizzie McGrath. After the story of the haunted pocket watch at the Royal BC Museum, we head past Dr. Helmcken’s old house – one of the most paranormally active buildings in the city. Into the gardens at St. Anne’s Academy, Victoria’s haunted convent for tales of ghostly nuns. We finish just inside Beacon Hill Park with a well-known doppelganger.

Location

Starts in front of the Visitor Information Centre at 812 Wharf Street. The Visitor Information Centre is directly across from the Empress Hotel.

About Ghostly Walks in Victoria, BC

Ghostly Walks are 90 minute walking tours conducted every night from May 1 to October 31 and on weekends through the rest of the year. During the tour, expect to hear great storytelling as we guide you through the streets and alleys of Victoria, a ghost-hunter’s paradise.

We have collected more than five hundred tales of ghostly encounters in Victoria and in our thorough research, we have uncovered the sordid truth behind many of the City’s most gruesome crimes and tragic accidents. On our tours, we weave together the ghosts and the stories behind them, bringing Victoria’s dark history to life.

Created by Victoria’s pre-eminent historian, John Adams, Ghostly Walks are a delightful, fascinating and spooky night of great storytelling for families and friends. Tours progress slowly through many of Victoria’s most interesting neighbourhoods, including Old Town, Bastion Square, James Bay, Beacon Hill Park and other aspects of our unique, haunted city.
