Ghost Hunt at Croxteth Hall, Liverpool

Welcome to the magnificent Croxteth Hall in Liverpool. A location so infamously haunted, it has been featured on numerous TV shows and news publications.

Croxteth Hall has been renowned for being haunted for many years, but it was thrown into the mainstream news in 2009, when something strange was caught on CCTV outside of the hall.

In the footage, the alleged ghost appears from the bushes, slowly moving along a path leading up to the house, before disappearing.

Experts believe it may be the ghost of the former resident, Hugh William Osbert Molyneux, the 7th Earl of Sefton, who died in 1972.

One other theory claims that it’s the infamous gambler William Philip Molyneux, 2nd Earl of Sefton, who laid the foundation stone at Aintree racecourse in 1829.

Local legend says that it’s William’s ghost wandering the grounds and that he tends to appear around the time of the Grand National every year,

Inside the building lurks several ghosts. They include a young boy standing by the dining room fireplace. A dark shadowy figure that moves around the billiard room, and a gentleman, believed to be the 6th Earl of Sefton, walks through the tearoom and his former bedroom.

Recently people exploring the property have reported the shocking sighting of a man in a hood, with many people describing his face as “horrific”. He’s mainly witnessed in the basement, but he’s also known to walk the corridors and seems to stop and look at people before turning away and disappearing into rooms closed to visitors!

Disembodied footsteps are often heard, and kitchen cupboards and doors open and slam shut of their own accord.

The sheer size and grandeur of this 230-room mansion are daunting, especially in the dead of night. A ghost hunt in this magnificent building is certainly not for the faint-hearted.

Do you have what it takes to conduct a lone vigil in the basement where the dark hooded figure has made itself known?

Spots will fill up quickly for this one, so hurry and book now!

Deposits are available for just £20 per person.

Building started on Grade II listed Croxteth Hall in the 16th century to serve as home to the Molyneux family, the Earls of Sefton.  The house remained in the Molyneux family until 1972, when the 7th and last Earl passed away, passing the estate onto Liverpool City Council.

The earliest part of the Hall dates back to 1575. Over the centuries, there have been many renovations and additions, transforming it from a simple Elizabethan hunting lodge to the magnificent building you see before you today.

In 1952 tragedy struck the west wing of the Hall when a fire broke out, destroying all of the important features of Croxteth Hall. This area has now been elegantly restored to what is now known as the Queen Anne Suite. The restoration work was Funded through the Croxteth Estate Endowment Trust Fund, to the tune of £400,000.

The Croxteth County Park is Grade II listed and is Liverpool’s largest, with over 500 acres of woodland, pastures, ponds, and streams.
