Ghost Hunt | Nottingham Caves Ghost Hunt


Ghost Hunt | City of Caves | Nottingham Ghost Hunting Event

Join Haunted Evenings for a ghost hunt underground at the incredible City of Caves, Nottingham – a labyrinth of caves buried beneath the City's Broadmarsh Shopping Centre. Investigate the many sandstone caves used over the centuries as dwellings, storage and even an air raid shelter.  We've experienced some amazing paranormal phenomenon here in the past that we can't wait to return to see what is captured next!. Haunted Evenings events are the closest thing you're about to get to experiencing what it's like to be a true ghost hunter at one of the UK's most hidden haunted location!

History of Nottingham Caves

Believe it or not, Nottingham City Centre is built upon around 500 man made sandstone caves, more than anywhere else in Britain! Many of these caves are privately owned or inaccessible, some lost in time through redevelopment, however,  those that remain are now Ancient Monument Protected. The City of Caves, the largest accessible network of caves in the city is believed to date back as far as 900AD. These caves were used as dwellings as early as the 11th Century. In 1845 these caves were banned from use as homes for the poor, though it is likely they were still inhabited beyond this act. The City of Caves leads to original medieval cesspits and wells. As you descend into the darkness of the caves, you are soon hit with a sense of just how horrific an environment this would have been for the many poor citizens of old Nottingham.

Ghosts | Paranormal Activity at The City of Caves

With so much history attached to this dark and dank labyrinth of caves, it's little wonder that people have sensed and experienced strange goings on. These caves would have witnessed death, disease and been a hostile vile place to be, with poor living conditions beyond comprehension. Visitors have reported on several occasions the sighting of a dark shadowy figure, believed to be a male who dislikes female visitors!. This has been experienced first hand on our last investigation here.  Women beware! We've captured voices on the spirit box, pretty impressive when you realise how deep underground you are! Voices on our recorders, objects moved when everyone has been accounted for and people being pushed on command! Last time really was a night full of unexplained activity! What will you experience as you head underground at this incredibly historic location?
