Haunted Lunenburg

Many say that Lunenburg has more folklore, superstitions, and ghost stories than any other place in Nova Scotia. And when you stand in the town’s 260-year-old cemetery and face the shadowy outline of the Lunenburg Academy, you get the feeling it could be true.

Let our seasoned guides fill your head with tales of hauntings, witches, and ghost sightings! While wandering past ornate houses by lantern light, you’ll hear about the hangings on Gallows Hill, uncover the tragedy of the widow's walk and perhaps even spot the ghost of Sophia.  


Tour begins outside the Mariner King Inn (15 King Street) and winds its way gently up to Hillcrest Cemetery on Gallows Hill. If traveling with younger children, consider our gentler Haunted Lunenburg Family Night.
