Overview Overview

Join us for a behind-the-scenes tour of the Old Charleston City Jail, which housed some of Charleston’s most infamous criminals, 19th-century pirates, and Civil War prisoners. The Old City Jail was in operation from 1802 until 1939, and most of the building’s original structures like the cells and warden’s quarters still remain intact.

What to Expect What to Expect

The Haunted Jail Tour takes you through the cells, hallways, and into the places where Charleston’s worst criminals lived and died. Brace yourself as you hear stories like the legend of Lavinia and John Fisher, hotel owners from the 1800s who supposedly poisoned their guests. Featured on such shows as Ghost Adventures, the story goes that Lavinia’s ghost still, very audibly, haunts the premises.
This Haunted Jail Tour is quite possibly the scariest place you will ever go!  Open often to the public for arts events, the jail even gives locals an eerie chill down the spine as soon as one steps foot into the space. Visitors go as far to say they’ve seen objects move or even disappear, while others hear voices, the slamming of doors, or chains as they’re allegedly dragged against the floor of the jail.

Loved hearing the history behind the jail. We went at night which I think was the best time. The tour guide was great..

Great attraction where you have the opportunity to learn about history. The tour guide was great! Definitely worth the money.

Was quite fascinating - you head through a few rooms although all of them are mostly empty - just a few resurrected old cages where some of the inmates were held. One of the ladies within the group claimed to have something touching her head when we were in a dark room and it made it pretty exciting! Not so much for her though, she was a little freaked out but if you can handle being spooked a little this is a decent tour.

The jail ghost tour was a little disappointing. We didn't get to see the morgue or other parts of the building. Most of the windows were intentionally closed to make the visitors hot and justify cutting the tour short, so the operators could fit in more starting times. The jail has such a fascinating history, and the guides could do a lot more with it. As always, when it comes to ghosts, the almighty dollar still rules.

Very dark, lots of stories and history. But I thought the walk there through dark alleys was scarier. Interesting history about the jail. Very sad.

Though the jail is very hot in the summertime, the tour guides are knowledgeable and make the experience a lot of fun.

The tour wasn't as creepy as I anticipated. Our tour guide seemed to be super scripted with no personality. Maybe we just didn't luck out with the tour guide we had.
