Overview
Explore Old Charleston Jail, one of the city’s paranormal hot spots, during this guided night tour that takes you back through its history from 1802 to 1939. Hear tales from your guide about the ghosts that allegedly haunt its halls. Prebooking means you can visit on the day and time you’d like, and it’s easy to fit into your busy schedule.
What to Expect
Meet for this guided tour at the Old Charleston City Jail, and get ready to explore its haunted jail cells. Since it will be nighttime, prepare to get even more spooked.
As you walk the hallways, your guide will tell you all about the city’s most famous criminals who lived and died there. You’ll enter the actual cells that held notorious prisoners, such as Lavinia and John Fisher. See if you can catch sight of Lavinia’s ghost, who has been said to still haunt the halls. Some tourgoers have claimed they’ve seen objects move on their own.
Your tour ends back at the entrance of the prison with plenty of time to go out afterward to recover from your eerie adventure.

Great experience. Tour guide was informative and shared a number of encounters at the Old Jail. Even though we did not have a paranormal encounter it was a great time. I recommend any of the tours through Bulldog tours.
