York Guildhall Ghost Hunts

The York Guildhall was once used as a Court of Justice for the infamous trial of Margaret Clitherow - who was put on trial for practising Catholicism in 1586. It is a majestic looking building and plays a major part in York's history today.

The current Hall dates from the 15th Century but it is actually built on the site of an earlier “Common Hall” which was referred to in a charter from 1256. Thought to be one of the oldest buildings in the city of York, it served the guilds as a meeting place. Set in one of the most reputedly haunted cities in the UK - the York Guildhall has a reputation of housing a plethora of ghostly sightings and experiences.

During the Second World War the Guildhall was damaged by German Bombs during the Baedeker Raid in 1942. It wasn’t until 18 years later that the stone shell of the building was restored again complete with a new stained glass window which was re opened by Queen Elizabeth, the Queen Mother in the 1960’s.

Amazingly the stone walls of the building escaped total destruction and now form the frame of the reconstructed hall. A single tree trunk was used for each oak pillar, the originals coming from the Forest of Galtres. The inner room of the Hall also survived during the raid and remained intact – along with its panelled walls, masons marks, hidden stairways and a ceiling decorated with old bosses.

With so much history it comes as no surprise that the Guildhall is reputedly haunted with many ghosts and spirits within its very foundations.

There are said to have been reported sightings of the full apparition of a spirit man whose loud ghostly footsteps have been heard in various parts of the building. Mutterings and whispering spirit voices have also been reported by the many visitors to this location – as you can see this is simply one night not to be missed – join us in the darkness as we spend the night investigating York’s most haunted building!
