Haunted Evenings are proud to have exclusive access to this incredibly vast and abandoned Old Nurses Home, part of the Old Leicester Towers Mental Asylum complex. Opened in 1931 to accommodate the Leicester Towers nursing staff, this huge listed building, with it’s countless empty rooms and corridors, will not be for the faint hearted. With many unexplained encounters experienced by the current occupier, from growling, the sound of singing, distant footsteps and bangs along with a ghostly figure frequently seen from one of the upper floor windows, this never before investigated building is a must to explore! What will you experience at this very grand and untouched imposing building?!

Leicester Towers Nurses Home History

Leicester Towers Nurses Quarters Plaque

The Leicester Towers Hospital, formerly named in history as the Borough Lunatic Asylum, which opened in 1869, occupied a 30 acre site, creating an institution/community for those suffering from mental illness. In 1931, within the hospital grounds, a further 3 storey building was added onto the 30 acre site  “The Nurses Home”, which was designed to accommodate female nurses. The upper two floors of which we have full access, consists of 70 bedrooms for general nursing staff, with many original feature still intact, such as fitted wardrobes and mirrors, along with kitchen areas and toilet facilities. The long empty corridors with their untouched carpets and echoing stairwells is an eerie reminder of a by-gone age. This huge nurses home was sold off privately when the hospital was closed for redevelopment in 2012 and has literally been left in its original state, untouched and crying out to be investigated!
