Event Details

This guided walking tour takes place every Friday night and focuses on the ghastly side of life in the Garrison during the 18th Century.  It also includes a trip through the mysterious Garrison Tunnels!

The 2.5km walk starts and finishes at George Washington House, with ‘Check-in’ at the Events Ticket Booth (far left-hand corner of the car park).  Starting at 6:45pm and lasting approximately 2 hours, there is a water-stop about halfway through and we suggest bringing a torch (flash light) and suitable shoes for walking on grass and sandy tracks.
The tour will also explain:
  • Details of the construction of the unfinished Garrison Fortress 1789 – 1793
  • How ‘Graves End Beach’ got its name.
You will also experience several short dramas en route including:
  • A re-enactment of the execution by firing squad of a freed slave at the Military Cemetery
  • The unsolved John Hislop murder of 1809.
Prices are:  Adults US$15, Child US$10. Advanced booking is recommended.
