Explore the Pike Place Market on this 75 minute exterior walking tour through the district. In the Market stands the city's first mortuary, part of an old graveyard, and a former brothel that still has a red glow cast on its side. The skeptic and the believer can enjoy this historical adventure. The Pike Place Market is visited by over ten million people a year. Very few know that it has been voted the most haunted location in the northwest. Learn why by joining us on this night time tour. While we have been involved in paranormal research in the area, this tour is not a ghost hunt. We root our stories in history and the tradition of storytelling. The northwest's true history can be more frightening than any ghost story. To return to our main website; click here.
The Pike Place Market Parking Garage on Western Avenue (between Union and Virginia) has a great rate: $5.00/all night starting at 5 P.M. After 8:00 P.M. street parking around the Market is free.

Check in at GHOST ALLEY ESPRESSO, 1499 Post Alley before your tour. We travel from Pike Street to Virginia and take advantage of Post Alley as a way to navigate through. This tour is our opportunity to show you the Market the way few people get to experience it, at night when the Arcades are empty. Your guide does not follow a script, so each tour can be different. While we all have core stories the guide is free to change the route and some content to suit the group attending.
Things To Bring
Bring cameras, umbrellas when it's raining & wear comfortable shoes. Although mostly covered, please come prepared for northwest weather. There are some stairs and one hill. The Pike Place Market is a nine acre district filled with cobblestones: high heels, strollers, and walkers are problematic. We do have white small umbrellas for use on the tours if you do not have your own.
* Tickets are non-refundable but can be used by a third party or at a different date and time with a change of reservation 24 hours in advance of your scheduled tour. Our staffing and planning is dependent on ticket sales. If you call the day of your tour we will not be able to move you to another date. All changes must be made at least 24 hours in advance.
