Join Paranormal Research York as we exclusively investigate this haunted 600 year old building in the heart of York. This is our first public event since lockdown ***(Please visit our website for full Covid-19 safety)*** and for your additional reassurance, we have been awarded Visit England’s ‘Good to Go’ kitemark.

This magnificent medieval building has been here since 1357 and is still used today. We offer an array of modern and traditional activities during our investigations and it is our aim to give you the best Ghost Hunting experience possible.

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

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

Previous guests have communicated with Vikings, heard footsteps, seen shadows crossing floors, unexplained mists in the Undercroft, heard the sound of monks chanting and children’s laughter; we have had direct responses to our questions during vigils and captured some Class A EVP’s (clear voices captured on audio).

There are spirits of children, judges and those who were tried in the court and the ‘men only room’ is only for the brave!

The Merchant Adventurers’ Hall Ghost Hunts are exclusive to Paranormal Research York. You will not get to investigate here unless you book with PRY…will you join us?

Due to restrictions, we ask you please to bring your own hot/cold drinks. We will provide a range of individually wrapped snacks.

I enjoyed using the equipment and doing non traditional activities.  It would be better to be in smaller groups and to go off alone.  I would come to another event organised by PRY.

Thanks Emma - With nine guests and four members of staff, unfortunately we could only split the group into two groups, one of four and one of five. Ordinarily we do offer lone vigils, but due to restrictions at present this won’t always be possible. Looking forward to seeing you at one of our events again.

I thought the event was very good - I would like more interaction like the human pendulum - that was great!  As a sceptic, I preferred the non tech over the equipment.  I would come on another event with PRY.  Thanks guys!

Thanks James - glad you enjoyed your evening and the human pendulum! Look forward to seeing you again.

I thought the activities were a good way of exploring the building and I used tech I have never used.  Got some good communication with the non tech aswell.  I’d come on another event with PRY.

Thanks Samantha, glad you enjoyed it! See you again!

The activities were excellent, I got pushed at one point into a table.  Enjoyed the traditional activities and tech.  I’ve booked a Halloween event already.

Thanks Darren, glad you’re ok after your experience! Look forward to seeing you again at Halloween.

Fantastic night all round!  Well worth the money.  Activities were excellent.  I would come on a PRY event again and have already booked for Halloween.

Thank you so much Glyn. Glad you enjoyed it, look forward to seeing you in October!
