Ghost Hunts at Chester Town Hall

History of Chester Town Hall

Chester Town Hall, an architectural marvel, stands as a testament to the rich history of Chester. This Victorian-era building, constructed in the late 19th century, has witnessed countless events, both celebratory and sombre. The Town Hall’s grandeur is evident in its intricate stonework, towering clock tower, and the ornate details that adorn its interior.

However, beneath this grandiosity lies a darker history. The Town Hall’s cells once held some of the most notorious criminals in British history. Among them were the infamous Moors Murderers, Myra Hindley and Ian Brady. These two were held in the Town Hall’s cells as they awaited their trial at Chester Assizes, now known as Chester Crown Court, during the tumultuous months of April and May in 1966.

The very thought of their presence in these cells sends shivers down the spine of many, and those who have worked within these confines have often reported feeling an eerie unease.

Furthermore, the Town Hall’s disused Victorian magistrates courtroom has been a setting for many a drama, both real and fictional. Recent scenes from the popular soap, Coronation Street were filmed here, adding another layer to the building’s storied past.

The Hauntings of Chester Town Hall

The Town Hall, with its macabre history, is no stranger to tales of the paranormal. Whispered accounts of unexplained noises, shadowy figures, and cold spots are common among those who have dared to venture into its most haunted areas, especially the cells and the courtroom.

Given its history, it’s no surprise that the spirits of those who once walked its halls might still linger. The cells, which once housed the likes of Hindley and Brady, are said to be particularly active. Many have reported feeling a heavy, oppressive atmosphere, as if the very walls remember the dark deeds of the past.

The courtroom, too, has its share of ghostly tales. From the murmured conversations of unseen entities to the sudden drop in temperature, there’s no shortage of evidence for those seeking the supernatural.

For the brave souls who join us on this ghost hunt, the opportunity to explore these haunted areas is unparalleled. With exclusive access to the cells, courtroom, and other hotspots, participants will have the chance to delve deep into the mysteries of Chester Town Hall. Will you be among them?

What to Expect

What to Expect

On your ghost hunt with Haunted Rooms, you will have full exclusive access to the most haunted areas of this historic location. Together with our friendly team of investigators, you will join others on structured vigils, where you’ll have the chance to use some paranormal equipment and join in on group vigils such as Ouija board sessions and seance.

Our event starts at 8.00 pm, but you can arrive at the earliest 7.30 pm. Structured investigations will end around 1-1:30 am. At this point, depending on the location, you will have the opportunity to investigate on your own using the techniques and information you have been provided with.

You will have the chance to look around the building before the event to familiarise yourself with its layout. Shortly before the event kicks off, we’ll run you through a quick induction and safety briefing, followed by a short talk and introduction from our team. You’ll then split into smaller groups with your family and/or friends if you’ve come together, and we’ll begin our vigils for the night!

If you have your own paranormal equipment, we encourage you to bring it, if not, we can provide them free of charge. Snacks, refreshments, and treats will be provided at intervals throughout the night, and we’ll have facilities to make hot and cold drinks too.

We do endeavour to have mediums and sensitives with us for every event, although circumstances out of our control can sometimes prevent this. Anybody with sensitive abilities, we encourage you to come forward, as it only increases the energy and enjoyment for all in attendance.

To get the most from the evening, we encourage you to try your hand at as many things as you can. If you’re feeling particularly brave, you should give a lone vigil a try, as well as join in with our table tipping experiments as we try to commune with the spirits and ghosts of the building.

Please dress weather appropriately, with extra layers of clothing if it’s cold, plus comfortable shoes and a torch if you need one.
