Charleston’s Hidden Alleyways and Passages

Quick Details


Come Explore Charleston’s Enchanting Alleys and Hidden Passages

Distinguished by their beauty, Charleston’s alleys occupy spaces that blur the line between public and private areas and offer remarkable insight into the history of the Holy City. Some of these quaint passageways are inaccessible by automobiles and are often overlooked, even by frequent visitors and residents who are more focused on the City’s grand homes and famous landmarks. Walking along these picturesque cobblestone, brick, and stone pathways offers an opportunity to step back in time and appreciate more fully Charleston’s charms on an intimate and inviting scale.

Charleston’s alleyways are fortunately located within the popular historic district which allows us to include some well known points of interest on the tour as well as go a little “off the beaten path”. Generally, we include between four to six different alleyways/passages as well as popular points of interest and of course, tons of history!

Admission to the Powder Magazine Museum is included with the price of your walking tour!  Just show them your ticket at the door.  Visit the museum at your leisure before or after your walking tour.  Located at 79 Cumberland St.  Click here for more info and opening hours: The Powder Magazine Museum

It has been said of Charleston that it is the only place in the world where one may live in an alley and be respected. We invite you to come explore some of these alleys and other landmarks along the way on your next trip to Charleston.
