What makes Southampton SO haunted?

Anyone who knows anything about Southampton will know its been a major part of England rich history. From a world renowned port to the maiden voyage of the Titanic to a stop off point for the Mayflower, it has it all.

When you talk about rich history, you talk about the potential for ghosts. Take Tudor house for example, a massive 800 years of history when you combine it with King Johns Palace.

Tudor House has said many residents and was the home of Sir John Dawtrey, a wealthy merchant whos influence on the house made it what it is today. He was friends with Henry VIII and held plenty of power.

Tudor House is said to be home to several ghosts including the spirit of Dawtrey himself. His ghost has been spotted in different parts of the house. Hes not alone, and this Halloween we will be hosting another ghost hunt at the venue. You can be a part of that by booking your tickets on our website.

How about Netley Abbey, said to be haunted by a monk known as Blind Peter who buried treasure and warned not to locate it. His ghost has been seen at the Netley abbey, even today!

One of the most interesting ghosts is that of a woman on Cobden bridge who claims to be lost and gets in to cars before simply vanishing, or the roman soldier seen at Bitterne Manor.

Southampton is home to several ghosts and this is just the start! Find out more on our award winning Southampton Ghost Tours.

Winchester Ghost Tours announces new meeting point!

Winchester Ghost Tours is excited to announce that we have a new meeting point! From May, our tours will begin and end inside the Westgate Hotel.

Guests can enjoy a drink and relax before the tour and then do the same at the end. We are excited to be working with such an iconic venue.

Being scared has never been so much fun!

Its a fact that many of us enjoy being scared, we enjoy the thrill of not knowing what to expect and we enjoy uncovering the dark side of history.

Over the past 15 years we have continued to provide ghost tours across Southampton, Portsmouth, Winchester and Windsor and the attractions have won a number of awards and positive feedback from you. After all, without you we cant do the tours!

Its probably not a stretch to state that most big in most parts of the world have a ghost tour but what makes us different is that its unique. Live actors in an immersive environment which in Southampton includes the Vaults and in Portsmouth includes the historic Spice Island inn.

Our tours really are about showcasing the amazing history that we have in a way that brings out the thrilling stories that we all love….the scary ones!

As we return to the pandemic we encourage you to come along to our tours, even if youve been before because we always change things and enjoy an evening of entertainment that we have all missed out over the last two years.

Enjoy the scares, the thrills and the fun that you enjoyed before and support these amazing events. We are always grateful to everyone for showing their support and joining us on the tours!

Why are ghosts always seen in the dark?

It’s the one question that everyone asks ‘why do ghosts only come out at night?’ But you may be surprised to discover that actually isn’t the case at all.

In fact, staggering 70% or so of ghost sightings actually take place during the day, so why do we always associate ghosts with the dark or night?

The most obvious answer is that its scarier. Let’s be honest, if you watched a scary movie with ghosts in the day time it just doesn’t have the same effect. You have less awareness of whats around you in the dark, you can see less than the list goes on.

It’s also worth noting that some people are scared of the dark. In the dark we have to rely on other senses which means that our senses increase which means we notice more. Some ghost sightings can also be put down to sleep paralysis and most of us experience this overnight when we are sleeping.

But with such a high percentage of ghost sightings in the day, why do we do ghost hunts at night. Again, its a public event its the scare factor but from a paranormal point of view there are several reasons.

Ruling out the most obvious reasons which could be confused with something paranormal is the first point. With less traffic and less people around at night it can it can help us rule out any experiences being put down to that.

The other reason is exactly what we mentioned earlier, your senses are more alert and so you may see or hear more With that being said, you will also notice things that probably happen every day that you dont notice like creaking pipes etc.

There is also the theory that the most active part of the day for activity is between 12am-3am and you have probably noticed that 3am is often featured as frequent time on clocks in movies including The Amityville Horror.

We also cant forget the most obvious reasons, movies feature many of the scariest part at night and that we go looking for ghosts at night!

Now if we think about it logically, we are around more in the day and if you are somewhere like an Abbey looking for ghosts, they had strict routines, much of which was during the day time hours.

So if ghosts really were people, and we believe that they were, then yes they would be around more during day time hours!

Witchcraft tour to head to Windsor!

After the huge success of both the Southampton Witchcraft, Torture and Execution Tour and the newly announced Winchester one, we felt it was time to bring it to Windsor!

2020 has been a turbulent and sad year for all of us and we have all been impacted in some way, so we thought it was time to announce yet more exciting news!
