Join us for a tour of the other side of this historic area on your own Segway transporter, the perfect synthesis of form, function and frightening fun! Upon arrival at the Distillery location and following an introduction to your tour leader you will spend a short time learning how to ride your segway. Then you will join us as we effortlessly glide around the Distillery area which was founded in 1832 by Brothers-in-law William Gooderham and James Worts.
The Gooderham and Worts Distillery eventually became the largest distillery in the British Empire. Set on 13 acres in downtown Toronto, the forty plus buildings constitute the largest and best preserved collection of Victorian Industrial Architecture in North America. The Distillery District is a national historic site.
And it’s haunted!
The spirit of one of the founders lingers on and people working in the area have reported hearing strange noises and feeling a presence or a chill in a number of the buildings. During your ghost tour we will explore the haunted areas and discuss some of the stories of ghosts and spirits.
At the conclusion of the tour you will receive a ghostly edible treat from Distillery District’s own Soma Chocolate.
