Calling all ghost hunters, this 1-hour ghost tour of Williamsburg delves into the dark history of the city. Alongside a costumed guide, you’ll explore eerie streets cloaked in darkness and listen to tales of horror and hauntings. Learn about the 1626 Virginia witch trials, step on the former site of 18th-century gallows, and listen carefully for creaks of the death wagon on Nicholson Street. On this family-friendly tour, numbers are limited to 15 in order to maintain a spooky atmosphere.
Greet your ghoulish guide on the east end of the Duke of Gloucester Street, right in front of the Capitol Building. Launch straight into spine-tingling tales of Williamsburg’s dark history as you stroll to your first location: the old jail.
Listen to tales of the 1626 witch trials and learn of the gruesome methods used to test women for witchcraft. Strain your ears to hear the ominous creak of the death wagon on Nicholson Street, and stand upon the former site of the 18th-century gallows, where raucous crowds gathered to watch bloody executions.
After an hour of exploration, return to your original departure point and bid your guide farewell.
