Ghost Hunt York Castle Museum | Ghost Hunting York

outside-york-castle-museum
Join Haunted Evenings as we explore this incredible historic and rarely investigated landmark in the haunted City of York. Believed to be the Most Haunted Museum in the UK, it’s little wonder why once you realise the museum is housed within the old 18th Century Prison building which was home to highwaymen, debtors and murderers. If that wasn’t enough, the old prison was built on the site of  York Castle and built from the stones of the original castle! Your Ghost Hunting experience here will lead you into the old debtors prison cells, as well as the condemned mans cell where Dick Turpin spent his last nights before being executed in York. You will also get to experience the Victorian Street “Kirkgate” after dark (formerly the female prison exercise yard) and find yourself in small numbers investigating the old period room and backstreets which bring the rich and poor Victorian era to life. 

 Hauntings of York Castle

York Castle Museum, on the site of a former prison. has long been reported as being haunted. This rarely investigated location is crying out for a team of budding ghost hunters to join Haunted Evenings for the night to invest the many strange occurrences that have been reported here. Reported in the national press, one family of daytime visitors were astonished to capture the ghostly image of a Victorian girl on their camera, leaving them never wishing to return! Several staff at York Castle have experienced mysterious goings on, chains rattling, scratching noises from the cells and ghostly voices heard throughout the building. An old lady dressed in black has also been sited by a fireplace and a woman heard singing…none of which were from the living!
