University of Toronto Ghost Tour - BOO!

University of Toronto Ghost Tour - BOO!

There are more ghosts than you think haunting Toronto's oldest university. A great way to discover where they are, if you want to find them or avoid them, is to take this fun and frightening walking tour. Whether you are a skeptic, or if some of your best friends are ghosts, you can have a swell time on this tour.

Our guide Richard: suspected ghost.
We started at #AvenueBloor by the old east entrance to the ROM where we met our knowledgeable and fearless guide, Richard. He took us around campus to several spots on the 90-minute tour. We learned about a young ghost spotted in the old Planetarium called Celeste, who would be seen watching the stars with the other children. A famous axe-murder from the mid 1800s that left the victim and a door in a bad way. The story of a cookie maker who had a secret in his basement and much more! 

Not the door!
Tours are scheduled on Monday, Wednesday and Friday nights, call ahead to check availability and reserve a spot. You can also arrange your own time for you and a group, just get in contact with Muddy York Walking Tours - they've got lots of other fun and historical tours of the city.
