Peterborough Museum Ghost Hunt | East England

Join Haunted Evenings as we explore this former Peterborough Hospital, with it’s original surgery room and dark uninviting Vaults beneath the building to investigate (once used as the hospital mortuary), along with several rooms to break off into, you’ll be testing your bravery as you dabble into the unknown. With so much history to this site it’s little wonder many visitors have encountered strange goings on, staff alike have reported several accounts of ghostly experiences, the building boasts 8 ghosts who have appeared throughout the building.  Armed with all the very latest equipment, you will get to experience new and old ghost hunting vigils throughout the night, as well as have an opportunity (for the brave) to go it alone! This is your night and we welcome (and dare you) all to join us on an intense but fun night of ghost hunting at Peterborough Museum. What will you experience?!

The Hauntings at Peterborough Museum…..

Where to start! Down underneath the main building in the Priestgate Vaults, many have reported the sense of unease, from a cold breeze around their shins (reported to be the spirit of a dog that roams the corridor), to deep audible growls, dark shadows lurking in the wine cellar and an unsavoury character who doesn’t like visitors being down there. Others have picked up a connection to a Monk in one of the Vaults and children have been sensed here too. This area used to be a make-shift morgue for the former hospital so it’s little wonder the energy felt down in the Vaults can put people on edge.

Upstairs in the main building is the surgery room (with original theatre style wall tiles and red-brick floor tiles, still present today). it is here many have felt the most heavy of atmosphere’s. Voices have been captured in here with many visitors refusing to spend any length of time in this room.

In other areas of the building, poltergeist activity has been reported, a grey figure of a WWI soldier has been sighted as well as the apparition of a white lady on the Upper floor. 

Peterborough Museum History

With history dating back on this site to the 12th Century, starting with likely connections during medieval times to Peterborough Abbey, parts of the museum building date back to the 16th Century when it was first a private Mansion. In 1816, the Grand Georgian building we can see today was built for local magistrate Thomas Cooke who owned the property until 1856, when it was sold to the 3rd Earl Fitzwilliam, who, a year later, allowed the building to become Peterborough’s first city hospital which eventually closed in 1928.
