**** Please note that Tours have been CANCELLED for the remainder of the year. Tours will resume in Jan 2020.

The Garrison Historical Consortium presents Night Tours in the Garrison Historic Area.

This tour is a bit of a thriller and focuses on the macabre side of life in the Garrison.

  • Murders, executions, crimes and punishments!
  • The tour will also explain:
    • The Garrison Tunnels by night!
    • Details of the construction of the unfinished Garrison Fortress.
    • How ‘Graves End Beach’ got its name.
    • You will also experience several short dramas en route including:
      • The story of a West India Regiment soldier executed by firing squad at the Military Cemetery.
      • The unsolved John Hislop murder of 1809.

Be sure to wear comfortable, reliable shoes for the tour.

Bringing your own flashlight is recommended (but not mandatory) as it may help with viability.

Come and be a part of history.
