Prepare for an unforgettable night of ghost hunting at The Galleries of Justice, Nottingham.

This highly prized location to investigate has seen ghost hunters from the world over search its many levels for ghostly activity. This location is huge, and each area gives its own macabre stories. Dark, Cold, and great at making you lose your senses, here you will go underground into a cave system, and find yourself wandering the cells of prisoners past.

Your ghost hunt at the Galleries of Justice will see you exploring all areas of the building made available to us, where you will be able to experience glass divination, table tipping and a group human pendulum experiment. Plus, for those comfortable enough – Ouija boards will also be on hand for you to use – all to aid your communication with the dead. Also, you will have a whole host of the most up-to-date ghost hunting gadgets to use whilst you carry out your ghost hunt. 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. For the very brave lone vigils (ghost hunting in a room all alone) are very popular and plenty of opportunities to do so will be given. Followed bt a Haunted sleepover for the very brave.

Can you do time in the Galleries of Justice or will you pray for an early release?

Reported Ghosts

Execution by hanging took place on the steps of the Galleries and this was the only place you could be tried, sentenced and punished under one roof. The entrance hall is supposedly haunted by 4 ghosts;

The courtroom has been reported to have knockings, groans, footsteps and the sound of the gavel hitting the judge’s desk has been known to sound throughout the room. The smells of rotting corpses and dark shadows have been experienced in the viewing gallery.

In the Cells and corridors there are the sounds of footsteps, cell doors banging and the sound of keys jangling, as well as the apparition of a man. Could this be one of the guards making sure the prisoners are still incarcerated within their cells? Feelings of depression have also been experienced within this area.

Children’s cries have been heard throughout the laundry room and also the sound of female voices. Doors are known to slam in this area and in a certain room there has been many reporting’s of females feeling a discomfort in their stomach, as though they are in the late pregnancy. This is supposedly from a worker in the laundry who was murdered whilst she was in the late stages of pregnancy and died within this room. It is here that you could be overcome with emotion as many visitors have reported this.

The most haunted part of the galleries however is in the very depths of this building. In the chapel crosses are known to be thrown and growls are heard, as well as voices. In the caves, remains of animal bones and artifacts have been found, which suggest suffering; this may explain why the Victorians felt the need to close the building down.

Visitors have reported feelings of being watched and of becoming overcome with sickness and dizziness. The most disturbing evidence of this amazing building being haunted is the reports of scratching and stones being thrown accompanied by the presence of dark shadows that torment your very soul.

A Victorian gentleman, a Soldier, a lady in a long gown and the fourth spirit is known to be responsible for cold spots. The spirit is a little girl who is seen on the stairs and the grand jury room.

Venue History

The Galleries stands on a site dating back to 600AD and is the base for Nottingham’s original Saxon settlement. The first written record of the site as a prison dates from 1449; it was rebuilt in 1769 to 1772. Additional wings were built in 1820 to 1840. The courts were largely rebuilt in 1876 following a major fire. The Victorians closed the jail in 1878 due to its appalling conditions.

The Galleries of justice was an all in one building, were criminals could be held, tried and if needed, executed very quickly on the same site.
In modern times it has acted as a court room and today, it houses the National Justice museum.

Where can I start, from arrival, to the running of the vigils to closing the night. The haunted houses team did the job, and did it well! It’s so great to find a team who are so genuine and relaxed when taking great care of the event, Our ghost hunt at the Galleries of justice with you was the best we’ve had yet and we have attended a lot of ghost hunts with other teams in the past!

The activity was crazy and I’m still trying to work out what went on! I’m astounded! Thanks for the BEST NIGHT EVER and we really look forward to seeing you all again soon.
