Our Ghost Hunt at the fantastic Matlock Pavilion in Derbyshire!
The Grand Pavilion in Matlock Bath was built in 1910 for tourists. People visiting the beautiful town of Matlock used to arrive on excursion trains from all over England and move around the area by horse drawn carriage.
The Pav (as this building is affectionately known as) was the perfect venue to events and entertainment!
So who still wanders the Matlock Pavilion? And why are they here?
When you enter the pavilion, you cannot help but be blown away by the dancefloor of the building. An area that would once have been bustling with people, a place of happiness and excitement! A place that tourists would have flocked to!
With so many years of history, it is no wonder that this venue has plenty to offer.
Are there any spirits still dancing here? Was this a place that held fond memories for them?
Soak up the atmosphere of this once thriving building. Take time to appreciate why the local people of Matlock wanted to save it when it was threatened by sale.
When darkness falls, let the Pavilion transport you back in time…
