The Galleries of Justice in Nottingham is infamous for
frightening paranormal activity. The misery, torture & despair
endured here for centuries lingers and we defy anybody to walk the
floors and rooms of this vast location alone without feeling that you
are being watched at every turn.
The Galleries of Justice stands on a site dating back to 600AD and is the base for Nottingham’s Saxon settlement. Archeologists have unearthed clues within the sandstone caves to suggest that the site was linked with imprisonment & punishment from these early times. Written records show that the site was used as a court from 1375 and as a prison from 1449. The courts were largely rebuilt around 1876 following a major fire and the Victorians closed the jail in 1878 as part of the prison reforms due to the appalling conditions in which prisoners were held.
Executions by hanging took place on the steps of the Galleries of Justice and this was the only location in the UK where you could be Tried, Sentenced and have the punishment carried out all under the same roof. There is a heavy sense of the misery endured by those incarcerated here and we have unrestricted access to the location including the Courts, Night Cell, Men’s Cells, Women’s Washrooms, Chapel, Caves & even the terrifying Condemned Cell where a prisoner’s last hours were spent before succumbing to the noose as dawn broke.
A ghost hunt at The Galleries of Justice will give you a genuine insight into the paranormal and many people have reported extreme drops in temperature, strange lights and even the sounds of screams from within the building. Whole groups have witnessed the apparition of a figure stooping through doorways during ghost hunt vigils and people have become completely paralyzed with fear in this dark and foreboding location. Who or what will you encounter on an your overnight ghost hunt?
