Belgrave Hall, Leicester
21 August @ 9:00 pm - 22 August @ 2:00 am£42
Our Ghost Hunt at the fantastic Belgrave Hall.
A beautiful Grade II listed building on the northern edge of the city of Leicester.
Belgrave Hall was built in the 18th Century by a hosiery merchant but died soon after its completion.
Does his spirit still reside here? Does he feel connected to the beautiful home he barely had chance to live in?
The hall has had several owners and their families within its rooms over the years, including John Ellis who famously brought the railway to Leicester and was associated with George Stephenson.
Is his spirit still among those who are said to haunt this lovely building?
In 1936, the hall was sold to the Corporation of Leicester to be used as a museum. However, rather than a museum, the building we can visit today is a heritage site for all to enjoy.
So what spirits continue to reside in their family home? What history has this venue been a part of?
Wander through the large, cold, empty rooms and soak up the atmosphere of this once busy house.
Who still haunts the amazing hall and whose ghost has been seen within the garden walls?
With many ghost stories, this is the ideal location for a paranormal investigation.
Why not join us on our ghost hunt and see who you will encounter? Experience this magnificent family home for yourself and be a part of discovering the families who once considered the hall as their home.

Belgrave Hall has been home to many wealthy business men over the years, and all the owners have played a key part to the economic, social and charitable life of the community.

Belgrave Hall, Leicester - past events
Haunted Heritage have only once investigated Belgrave Hall, and what an event it was…
Rempod activity on command, cold spots, orbs and K2 fluctuations, we were certainly not disappointed. There were shadow figures also seen walking past the window in the garden.
Whist visiting the hall, our medium had this unsettling feeling of being watched from the bottom of the hall to the top of the first flight of stairs, so strong was this feeling she stopped twice, thinking somebody was behind her.. but no one was there.
As she continued up the stairs and walked into a room known as the nursery, she saw a lady walk across the room. Who was she?
There is a cold atmospheric feeling about this whole house. There is no question in our minds… Belgrave Hall is definitely haunted!
