Join Haunted Evenings as we take you on a ghost hunting experience like no other at this recently opened location in Central Birmingham. Spend time overnight in some of the many cells that have housed notorious criminals over its 126 year history as a centralised custody suite, from gangsters to serial killers. We’ll be splitting you off into small groups to take part in some pretty intense experiments to establish the hauntings of this oppressive Victorian lock up. What will we unearth?!…….

History of Steelhouse Lane

Built in the once slum area of Birmingham in the 1890’s, this now Grade II listed Victorian building now sits disused and eerily empty. The Birmingham Central Police Station could accommodate up to 50 detainees within its custody suite and was often described more so as a mini-prison. Notorious Cromwell Street serial killer Fred West was locked up here before his court trial and Steelhouse Lane is also well known for detaining the famous crooks, nicknamed the Peaky Blinders – known for sewing razor blades into the peaks of their caps in order to blind rival gangsters.

Despite still functioning up until early 2017 within today’s modern Police force, many original Victorian features remain intact at this phenomenal site. Haunted Evenings will be spending the night in this historical Birmingham landmark to investigate who still haunts here.  Are you brave enough to join us at “The Lock Up”?!
