What You Can Expect

Burial Hill Ghost Tour by Candle-Lit Lantern in Plymouth

Burial Hill

Meet your guide at the Plymouth Rock at 8pm to begin your spooky night walking tour of Plymouth. Make sure to bring along a flash camera to try to capture images of ghosts as you explore Plymouth's dark side!

As you follow your guide through the streets of Plymouth at a leisurely pace, use a hand-crafted replica of a 17th-century punched tin lantern lit by a candle to light your path. Your guide will share stories about the people and places that fueled local legends and take you to haunted places and mysterious gravesites.

Visit Burial Hill cemetery, which dates back to the 17th century and is the final resting place for many notable early Americans, including pilgrim John Howland, colonial governor William Bradford and Revolutionary War hero James Warren.

Learn about Plymouth's best-known shipwreck, the privateer ship General Arnold, which suffered a slow demise in a fierce storm in 1778. Most of the crew perished and some believe that General Benedict Arnold's decision to betray the Americans and join the British may be connected to the awful shipwreck.

Your guide will also lead you to the place where the decapitated head of Wampanoag Chief Metacomet — nickanamed King Philip — was displayed for more than 20 years in Plymouth after King Philip's War, a bloody, two-year conflict between New England colonists and American Indians that began in 1675.

You will cover about 1 mile (1.6 km) during your lantern-lit walking tour of Plymouth and return to your starting point at the conclusion of your 1.5-hour tour.
