About us

Based on the Jack-the-Ripper Walks in London, participants in the 35th annual Olde Towne GhostWalk will be treated to some of the most haunting stories of Portsmouth’s past.

Guides take spectators on a walk past haunted houses and mansions of Olde Towne, a 20-square block, 500 building area on the National Register of Historic Places. At each house on the tour, actors in appropriate costume will retell the legends of ghostly visitations and things that go bump in the night. Cameras are welcome. Houses are private properties and not open to the public.

PRICE: $10.00 (children under five are free)

LOCATION: Tours begin in the graveyard of Trinity Episcopal Church, corner of Court and High Streets in Olde Towne (500 Court Street)

LENGTH OF GHOST WALK: The tour lasts approximately 45 minutes, ending at Middle Street Park, where hot cider will be served, there will be entertainment, and tables with information, t-shirts and more.

    I just purchased tickets online, are they for a specific 7pm, 8pm or 9pm time slot, or do we just show up and get put into one of the time slots?

    1. Danny Donovan

      Hey Bobbi, yes, whatever hour you purchase the tickets for is the time you must show up. 7pm tickets will not be honored for the 9pm tour.

  4. Edward Gregory

    Iam trying to call to get tickets and there is no answer

  5. Laura

    We have to be at another event this night but are trying to sneak away for your Ghost Tour, what is the latest we can arrive and still catch a tour for the 9pm time slot? Thank-you!
