Ghost Hunts at Skirrid Inn

Join us for a fun evening of excellent food and real ghost hunting at Wales’s oldest inn and one of the country’s most haunted locations!

Located in Llanvihangel Crucorney, the Skirrid Mountain Inn is the oldest public house in Wales, and it has a long and grim history that can be traced back to the Norman Conquest.

The Skirrid Inn is the home of several spirits, and its long-held reputation as the most haunted pub in Wales has captivated ghost hunters for generations.

Standing in the shadow of the mountain for which it was named, the inn’s first floor was used as a Courtroom where people who committed serious offences were given capital punishment.

According to local legend, more than 180 felons were hanged until death from an oak beam over the staircase outside the courtroom. Markings from the hangman’s rope can still be seen on the staircase wood today.

On your evening at the Skirrid Inn, you’ll kick the evening off with a delicious, locally sourced, home-cooked meal at a private restaurant table. We’ll then head off in small groups to undertake a thorough paranormal investigation of this incredibly haunted venue.

Only 20 tickets are available for this event, making it a great choice for a more personable ghost hunting experience.

Hurry, book now, and secure your spots for an unforgettable night of ghost hunting at its finest!

Skirrid Inn Ghosts

The 17th century ‘hanging judge’, George Jeffreys, is rumoured to still stalk the upper floors of the inn, looking for people to condemn to death.

Records show 182 people were hung in the building from the same beam that runs over the top of the staircase. Most of these souls have been trapped here forever, reliving that fateful day.

One felon sentenced to death, John Crowther, a sheep rustler, has been seen several times on the property. The evil presence of the judge’s hangman has also been reported.

However, not all spirits in the Skirrid are malevolent. Friendly entities, such as Father Henry Vaughn, a local clergyman, have also settled in the house.

There is also the spirit of Fanny Price, a woman who worked in the inn during the 18th century and died of consumption at age 35. Fanny was buried at the local cemetery, though her spirit is known to like Room 3, and she often appears along with the smell of lavender.

In one disturbing episode, a female guest came running downstairs with her hair wet and wearing nothing more than a coat, screaming, “she tried to kill me!”. The owners said something or someone had held her down under the water whilst she was in the bath!

In another terrifying encounter, when a former landlady of the inn tried to sell the pub, she would experience all kinds of poltergeist activity on viewings of the property. In one particular instance, glasses were smashed and thrown around the kitchen.

Other ghostly occurrences in the house are the powerful scent of perfume, glasses flying without being touched, the rustling of a lady’s dress, the sound of soldiers in the courtyard and sightings of the White Lady.

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

Deposits are available for just £20.

Although snacks and drinks are provided, you’re welcome to bring your own. There are also facilities to make both hot and cold drinks, which are provided also.

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 2 am. At this point, you will have the opportunity to investigate this location 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.
