The Merchant Adventurers’ Hall, Fossgate, York

Ghost Hunt – The Merchant Adventurers’ Hall, York


This is an interactive event and you will get to try the activities for yourselves - you will be involved in the investigation as much as you dare be!

This amazing building is full of history and also full of spirit activity. Whether you are a novice, curious or a seasoned investigator this venue is not to be missed. We have had some amazing evidence that has turned sceptics to believers and the guest feedback has been awesome!

So much has happened. Guests have had communications with Vikings, hears footsteps walking around, seen shadows crossing the floors and unexplained mists, we have heard the sound of chanting and children's laughter, had direct responses during vigils, received some class A EVPs, guests have experienced spirit writing and SLS (stick man) camera activity and much more. Are you in?

This magnificent medieval building has been here since 1357 and is still used today as a Guild Hall as it was intended when it was first built. Join us as we use traditional methods and a range of hi-tech equipment to contact those with stories to tell in this Hall.

There are spirits of children who were in this 600 year old Alms-house; the great and the good, and not so good in the hall above. Judges and those who were tried in the court house area, which was brought into the building. Dare you enter the “men only” room? Some of our female guests felt intimidated in here.

Light refreshments are provided as well as use of the equipment.  You are welcome to bring your own investigating equipment if you wish and, time and spirits permitting, do your own private vigil.

The Merchant Adventurers' Hall Ghost Hunts are exclusive to Paranormal Research York. We offer an array of modern and traditional activities during our investigations to give our guests the best possible experience.
