THE BLACK LION
Your Halloween experience will begin in the grade II listed 16th century Black Lion Inn which has been described as "The Most Haunted Pub in Hereford". Know locally for it's poltergeist activity and little girl ghost 'Alice' who has been seen peering out of a window, this pub dates from 1550 and was originally built to offer lodgings for pilgrims visiting the nearby Cathedral.
In the late 17th century its use changed dramatically when it became a brothel and by 1710 it was being used as an orphanage. It became an inn in 1770 and has remained in constant use.
The Red Room
Following a buffet supper you will be led upstairs to see one of the pubs most haunted rooms and it's unusual features.
These are a series of medieval murals which depict the Ten Commandments being broken. With scenes of murder and violence these are quite remarkable and it's rumoured that during the dissolution of the monasteries Catholics would meet here in secret.
A favourite with ghost hunters this building continues to prove itself as a real paranormal hot-spot!
THE GHOST WALK
Having ran the Hereford Ghost Walk for many years, there are few people who know the hauntings of this ancient and beautiful city more than Jayne Harris.
Upon leaving the Black Lion, and as night falls you will be guided down dark alleyways and across the Cathedral grounds into the heart of the city.
This 60 minute tour delves into the grisly secrets of some of the cities oldest buildings with tales of murder, suicide and hauntings, you will learn about the plague pits, the horseman, the ghostly monks and more as you make your way towards the infamous Shire Hall.
Keep an eye on the shadows...and don't get left behind!
THE SHIRE HALL
- Main Investigation -
By 7.30pm you will have arrived at the notorious Hereford Shire Hall in time for the full paranormal investigation.
After a hot drink there will be a safety briefing, followed by a 6 hour investigation covering the entire building,
finishing at 2am.
Standing on the site of the original medieval gaol this haunted 17th century building is one of the oldest working Courthouses in the country and overlooks the spot where the gallows once stood. Historical legend tells of a disturbed Prison Governor who, following the public hangings outside, would recover the bodies of the deceased and keep them to be used as food for his pigs.
Inside you will have access to the original medieval cells, the basement corridors, the courthouse, side rooms and magnificent concert hall.
With over 400 years of crime, punishment, torment and death at this location, it's no surprise that the paranormal activity at the Shire Hall has left even the most experienced of investigators running for the main door!
WILL YOU FACE A LONE VIGIL IN THE HAUNTED CELLS?
Paranormal activity includes cell doors slamming on their own, disembodied footsteps, cold spots and a shadow figure lurking in the courtroom. The smell of cigars has also been reported despite the building being non smoking but possibly the most chilling account came from a group of school children and their teacher, who all witnessed the ghost of a little girl moving past the concert hall before fading into a wall!
