The local community believe that this is one of the most haunted places in Morecambe and as you step inside you can understand why. Old reception rooms stand in a state of disrepair, there are stairs that lead to nowhere, countless bedrooms hoping to be brought back to life, an old library that longs for readers to open its books again and in the stunning observatory you can still see the marks of where it was once struck by lightning.
Not only do you have all these rooms, but there are also the cellars which housed the servant’s kitchen and a grand ballroom. The Ghosts who are said to reside within this former hotel’s walls have been reported for many years, with many of the hotels occupants leaving early and refusing to stay the night.
A sinister Male has been accounted to roam the corridors and public spaces and is known to make his frustration known if he hears too much noise, another spirit is known to make themselves known on the stairs, giving you a helping hand down in the form of a push! We recommend you use the handrails when visiting this location.
Female cries and whimpers have been heard in the dead of night – as well as children’s laughter echoing throughout the cellar. Whistles, cold spots, feelings of being watched and touched. This location will make for a terrifying sleepover experience.
As with all British Seaside Resorts, Morecambe like many became a popular Victorian holiday destination, especially since it became connected to many Northern cities by a railway line. The Park Hotel is believed to have begun construction around 1870 to become one of many hotels catering to this Victorian crowd. As package holidays abroad become more affordable in the 1960/70’s – Morecambe began its decline and the hotel finally closed its doors as demand fell severely.
