Ghosts of Stratford Theatrical Walking Tours
True tales of Stratford’s haunted past as researched by Wm. Miller, Esq.

Friday evenings at 8:00 p.m. in July, August and early September

For nearly 150 years, Euphemia and Edward Elphinstone have enjoyed their evening strolls around Stratford. Accompanied by Edward’s lovely music on Romantic guitar, Effie is always happy to share stories from her beautiful city’s dark and haunted past - including the tale of Stratford’s own Jack the Ripper!

Pubs, Pilsners and SPIRITS TOUR
Selected Thursday evenings in September and October
When the autumn wind is rising and the air is wild with leaves, join us for a tour of Stratford’s historic taverns and hostelries. Along the way, you’ll learn about the tumultuous brewing history of Perth County and hear stories of spirits (of the non-alcoholic variety!) that continue to haunt our beautiful city even today.
Ticket price includes a half-pint of the landlord’s finest at each of three landmark pubs.
Meet your costumed guide at Stratford Tourism, 47 Downie Street, 10 min. prior to tour start time.

Selected evenings at the end of October.
When the dark comes early and the nights are long, join us for this special edition of the Ghosts of Stratford. New characters sharing even more chilling stories, a visit to Avondale Cemetery and a macabre shadow play are highlights of this candlelit walking tour.

“Stratford itself is the type of walkable wholesome town Rodgers and Hammerstein might write a musical about.”
