Gruesome History of Gloucester Prison

Gloucester Prison originally opened in 1792 as a County Gaol and was significantly remodelled in 1840 to what we see today. Now Grade II listed and built on the former site of Gloucester Castle, there is little wonder this location has become a haunted explorers dream, with it’s vast site to investigate and it’s brutal history, including on-site executions!. Our Halloween special will be a one off opportunity to investigate this site with Haunted Evenings before its imminent closure to redevelopment.

The site bore witness to countless executions with up to 122 executed criminals said to be buried in unmarked graves within the prison grounds. Notable former inmates at Gloucester Prison include an Irish Sinn Fein Politician who died at the prison, Herbert Armstrong, a solicitor who went on to be hanged for murder (in 1922) and in more recent times, the notorious serial killer Fred West, from Gloucester, who was held here whilst on remand. Armed with all these facts, along with all the other thousands of criminals who have entered through its doors over the years (and the many who never left) Gloucester Prison is sure to be an intense place to go ghost hunting this Halloween!

Your Event….

Join Haunted Evenings as we investigate the empty cells and various prisoner rooms to discover just how haunted Gloucester Prison is. For the confident, why not take some equipment off into an isolated area all to yourself and see what you may experience?. For those that prefer the energy (and safety) of a small group, take part in controlled group activities from equipment to traditional vigils. Of course it’s Halloween so we’ll be chucking a few fun trick n treats in to boot! The big question is….Are you up for a night out to discover if the energy of former inmates still linger!?
