Hour-Long Ghost Tour of Williamsburg, Virginia

122 reviews
For a not-so-typical take on Virginia history, travelers shouldn't miss the chance to uncover haunted stories of Williamsbug on this ghastly ghost tour. Join up with your guide in the evening to visit several historic sights, dating to colonial times. Along the way, expect spooky tales of ghosts and spirits, and visit places where psychics and paranormal investigators have reported actual hauntings.

Used to be so much better in the old days. As kids, we loved going to the old pottery, so many store outside and you could spend hours going in and out of the shops , some inside and some outside. Today, all the shops are inside like a large Garden Ridge format. Its okay, lots of stuff to buy and take home. We liked their pottery section the most.

Though some of the reviews are extremely nasty, we seemed to find a bargain or two. The stores were not fully stocked and the A building was pretty sparse, probably due to Covid, changing shopping patterns and some shoppers yearning for the old Pottery. We 1st visited the old Pottery in the late 70's and though things have changed, we also drop in the new Pottery every time we are in Williamsburg. This time we found a beautiful Leacanthan cold hardy japonica Camellia for $12.99 in the garden center, and an incredible locally made chocolate pecan fudge cup on the checkout counter for $1.99. We also found a pot for our Orchid, saucers and a game for our grandchildren that was 3 times the cost at Yankee Candle. Over the years we have purchased a bottle of wine of two and found some decent wine for $5 a bottle. Sure it is disheartening seeing some empty sections and I don't know the financial situation of the business, but hopefully they can survive and we will always drop by when we are in town.

Since I live in the area, I stop in once in a blue moon just to see if anything has changed since last time. It has.... The shelves are incredibly even more bare. The owners keep replying to bad reviews saying shelves are empty due to some imaginary huge crowds that wiped them out. Folks..... there's never 2 or 3 cars there, not at Christmas time, not in July - the shelves are bare because they can't afford to refill them without customers - especially perishables. The shelves are bare, the shelves have been bare for years, there's no time when they're full. The customers stopped coming before the old Williamsburg Pottery died, now this awful imitation has none of the products, prices or charm of the old place in its dying days. I don't know why they don't sell this lost cause - it would make a world class antique mall and its the perfect location.

I miss the old pottery so much. I lived about 1.5 hours away, then I moved about 30 min closer and I was so excited. It would be nothing for me to run down to the old pottery....when I went to the new pottery, I wanted to cry. I've been there twice and I won't go back. I miss the dirt floors, I miss the flowers, the ladies making arrangements, all of the old feel of the pottery. It was wonderful. What a mistake this place is.

Simply don't waste your time. This is not like the old days. I have newly ones in my family and would have loved to share that experience what i have had at the old rustic place. The old feeling of Crossing that old rail road track. Missing that old feeling of crazy buying. Can't show my new love ones what it was like before. What a mess!!! I feel sorry for all these people going out of their way on a road trip to just see this mess. PLEASE CHANGE THE NAME OF THIS PLACE. suggestion .... "NEW Since ( date ) " ..... was formally Williamsburg Pottery Factory and please DO NOT USE "Williamsburg PotterY". clearly it is NOT!
