Ghost Stories Of Toronto

City's dark tales even scare the Haunted Walk of Toronto tour guides

Toronto is known widely for its beautiful sights and great history, but many are unfamiliar with the city’s ghosts. When the lights go out on the streets of Toronto, some say that’s when ghosts and spirits begin to roam the pathways and buildings.

Even though Halloween is just an annual affair, at The Haunted Walk of Toronto, stories of ghost experiences and potential hauntings are recorded throughout the year.

The Ghosts and Spirits of the Distillery tour is among the walks that are accessible throughout the year, and the stories told will leave one shaking in their boots.

Tour guide, Sarah-Jane Grove, says she believes in ghosts and because of that, she enjoys sharing the tales of the historic area’s past.

“All the stories we tell are thoroughly fact checked and backed up and I myself have experienced strange things, things that are hard to explain in my life, so I do have a tendency to lean towards believing in the mysterious things in life,” Grove said.

Grove explained further that during her tours she sometimes feels uncomfortable, particularly when standing outside of the Swedish bedding store Hastens. She says she has even seen lights flickering inside.

Several past participants have notified the group of various paranormal activity and even today, new creepy experiences are always being discovered.
