Learn the Spooky History of Newport

Today’s Newport attracts countless visitors from around the world; its streets are alive with art, culture, wealth, and beauty. Yet the city harbors echoes of a dark and turbulent past, including a variety of haunted sites: the Jailhouse Inn, Washington Square, the White Horse Tavern―America’s oldest tavern―and many more.

These tours show a side of Newport that history books alone could never tell and help you peer past the city’s gilded façade to discover dark secrets sure to spook and surprise!

Discover ghost ships, graveyard crypts, and much, much more! Take a lantern-led evening stroll down historic Newport, Rhode Island’s shadowy lanes, and discover the ghosts, ghouls, and legends of our haunted city by the sea. Our professional guides light your way.

The Olde Town Ghost Walk lasts roughly 90 minutes and we walk less than 1 mile. The tour travels at a leisurely pace over Newport sidewalks, so it is accessible to everyone. Wheelchairs and strollers are permitted as well, so our ghost walk is accessible to everyone.
