Charleston’s Alleys and Hidden Passages


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. These quaint passageways are frequently 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.

However, 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.

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.
