Taking part in spirit call-outs and wait to see what happens in the silence that follows. Haunted Houses likes to work in small teams to give you the very best experience possible.

Reported Ghosts

Ghost tours at Bolling Hall have often come to the same conclusion. Something very strange indeed goes on here at night! It has been reported that this old dwelling is home to at least 20 active ghosts – so your chances of meeting at least one has never been higher.

It is said to be very common to feel hands reach for you and to tug you off your feet in the darkness of certain rooms. Dark figures and shadows have been witnessed walking around the corridors and disappearing into rooms, but on inspection found to be empty. A sweet smell of tobacco is a common occurrence here even though it is very clear smoking has not been taking place for many years inside this giant former home.

There is a very famous ghost sighting reported at Bolling Hall which dates as far back as 1600’s by the Earl of Newcastle, who had taken up residency after his troops had fought a winning battle to take over Bradford Town. The story goes how the Earl claimed to of had his bed clothes torn off him in the dead of night, there before him stood the spirit of a woman begging him to “pity poor Bradford” As it was his plans to destroy the town and kill all residents. After this encounter the Earl spared the town killing only who resisted the takeover, by which this number was few.

Bolling Hall’s blue room is notorious for its haunting by a Victorian woman who seems to watch everything you do. But be warned; she may just have a temper as there are reports of objects being thrown across the room.

First time with haunted houses and will definitely be using them again! Such a great team and guests. They made us feel so welcome and I love that once we’re in our groups the team ask us what we want to do and let us carry out our own experiments. Thanks to all the team especially Ben and Lisa who led our group. See you all again soon!
