This lavish castle was built in Victoria, B.C., in 1890 as a private home for a local coal baron who died before construction was complete. It passed through many hands since then, and is now a tourist attraction open for tours, but rumour has it some old residents still call the castle home. There have been reports of a ghostly woman in white who stands alone in the castle ballroom, the sounds of children crying and even a piano that plays itself.
The location does not offer ghost tours, but is open daily for regular visits. It was the setting for the movie Spooky House.
No seating and 87 steps to climb, but tickets sell fast.
