Ghost Hunt at The York Dungeon Darkness Event


Not just a ghost walk - an investigation! Join Paranormal Research York as we investigate The York Dungeon in the heart of York. For the first time ever, we are hosting two events in one night. This second "Darkness Event" is for over 18's as we go deep into the "black heart" of The York Dungeon. Do you have the courage to embrace the darkness? For your best experience, we we investigating while the nightclub is closed.

By day visitors experience the story telling of the macabre events of the historic city of York.  After hours, the staff know the places to avoid and many will not venture alone into some areas. Tonight is going to very, very different from previous investigations in this dark and ghostly venue. There is no noise pollution with the nightclub closed, our "Peek into the Paranormal" event will have stirred the paranormal pot and we are about to get serious!

Tonight is the darkest event we have ever done, we are going as deep as we can into the black paranormal heart of this venue. Five hours of silence, (except from the screams of those who thought they were brave enough) gives us time to explore every activity in our armoury to contact those who remain on the land where The York Dungeon now stands. We will be using the experiences relayed to us by the staff to find the darkest and most active areas. This is a must for any paranormal fan.

Dare you mirror scry in the hall of mirrors, where the staff and visitors see the dark shadow figure?

Dare you stay quiet and alone in one of the many rooms?

Dare you ask whatever is there to make itself known to you?

If you dare, then join us, because we dare!

Now the history of the land. 

Whilst in York terms this building is relatively new, built in the 19th century, this building was once the York Institute of Art, Science and Literature and a public library.  But... the ground it was built on had the highest rates of poverty and crime in the city.  Known now as Cumberland Street, it was once part of the infamous Water Lanes and Cumberland Street formed Middle Water Lane.  The Water Lanes had the highest rates of poverty and crime in the city.  Murder, mugging, poverty and prostitution was the norm and some people did whatever it took to make a penny! Peel back the years even further to when the Vikings and Romans used the area as unloading areas for the boats coming up the River Ouse...what spirits are wandering the old Middle Water Lane?

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

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.

Due to restrictions, we ask you please to bring your own hot/cold drinks. We will provide a range of individually wrapped snacks.  Clifford's Tower Car Park is only a 5 min walk away

***(Please visit the Covid-19 section of our website for full safety measures)*** and for your additional reassurance, we have been awarded Visit England's 'Good to Go' kitemark.
