Join Haunted Evenings at Nottingham’s Most Haunted location – The Galleries of Justice Museum. The Museum has been voted “the most haunted building in the UK” and we can vouch for it being rife with activity. Last time we investigated we captured a shadow figure in the court rooms along with several EVP’s and our trigger equipment wasn’t quiet for long! The Galleries, with its deep dark history, is one of those places that puts most on edge, the condemned mans cell, wash room area and Oubliette, as well as courtyard gallows all have intense atmosphere’s – we’re back to take you on a ghost hunting experience you’ll never forget!

You’ll be one of just a few ghost hunters for the evening, checking out the prison cells, caves and court rooms, either on your own or within small groups. You’ll get the chance to use all the latest ghost hunting gadgets and really get a feel for what it is like to go ghost hunting at one of the top haunted locations!.

History of The Galleries of Justice

The Galleries of Justice (also known as Shire Hall) in Nottingham, England, is a place filled with history. It’s been used for law enforcement purposes for over 600 years, with evidence that suggests the hall was first used back in 1375 by the Normans, who had appointed Sheriff’s to keep peace and collect the taxes from the population. There was also a jail here with records showing its use as early as 1449. The prison cells can still be accessed today. The hall was also used as a police station from 1905 to 1985, whilst the courtrooms closed in 1986.

England’s history of Crime and Punishment is a shocking one, as are the sinister and grim stories of Nottingham’s own outlaws which are brought to life in the building where they were judged, imprisoned and executed. It is little wonder that The Galleries of Justice has become home to some very unnerving characters who appear to haunt all areas of the location.

Location / Map

The Lace Market,
High Pavement,



The National Justice Museum, as it’s now called, is the perfect place to investigate out of hours. Several layers to split down into, rooms, corridors, cells, caves and court rooms, so many areas so much intense history! There’s been a court house here since 1375 and a prison since 1449, this old Shire Hall has seen many executions by hanging, the history is dark and brutal.
With more areas to investigate than time really allowed (7 hours soon flies by!), 4 distinct experiments were set up, from traditional experiments in the old execution yard and caves, to using paranormal equipment to investigate the court rooms and women’s cells (washrooms).
Some of the highlights….
Human Pendulum experiments were conducted outside next to the mocked up Gallows, once the prisons exercise yard and place of execution. Guests helped bring forward several spirits over the course of the evening, including a 10 year old girl and spirits who claimed to be connected to those present.

In the condemned man’s cell area, a shout was picked up over our voice recorder which put a few on edge, I’m not surprised, it feels intense in there on any given investigation! Movement was detected through our device near the old oubliette area as well as some Class A EVP’s (see comments below) which implied the spirit was “guilty” when asked “were you guilty?” And when asked “What did they do to you here?” Replied “Hang(ed) me”. We also captured “yes I’m dead” when we asked “Do you know you’re dead?”. EVP’s posted on facebook. These EVP’s were a truly mind blowing way to finish the investigation – take a listen!!

Yet again we were truly blessed to be joined by a cracking bunch of friendly and willing guest investigators, your energy and willingness to take part made it a pleasure for all the team so thank you all once again.
