Quaint, charming Victoria is world renowned for its seaside attractions, flourishing gardens, and breathtaking ocean views. But looming behind its picture-perfect façade is a city shrouded in darkness, with restless, disembodied beings that whisper ghastly tales of mystery, violence, and horror.
Known as British Columbia’s most haunted city, Victoria is teeming with a plethora of spirits. Through this brand-new collection of disturbing tales, you’ll come face to face with:
The Grey Lady who chills hotel guests to the bone A decorous World War I soldier who protects tenants from something sinister An inconsolable child who haunts the pool area of a defunct hotel The blood-soaked spectre who runs through the infamous Fan Tan Alley to escape capture The eternal prisoner whose quiet laughter mocks his cell mates The ghost of Robert Johnson, who perpetually reenacts his suicide The phantom of a cranky hermit who plagues a beautiful lake house A trickster who shoves inebriated pub patrons down the stairs And a spinster who gives tours of her childhood home And many more
Ian Gibbs is a Ghostly Walks guide in Victoria, and he has compiled the stories of Victoria’s best-known hauntings along with some you may have not have heard before.
Ian Gibbs was born in the United Kingdom and emigrated to Canada when he was young. As such, he carries with him the celtic beliefs and gifts of his heritage, and has always been fascinated by story telling, ghosts and hauntings. He lived in several city centres across Canada before settling in Victoria, arguably one of the most haunted places in all of Canada, in 2000. During the summer months, he guides tours for Victoria's popular Ghostly Walks walking tours. Find out more at GhostStoryGuy [dot] com.
