SOLD OUT

The Brook Red Lion Hotel in Colchester, Essex is a historical Grade I listed building dating back to 1465. Located in the busy town centre of Colchester, Britain's oldest recorded town, The Brook Red Lion Hotel in Colchester is one of the oldest inns in the area.

The Parliament Restaurant at the Red Lion Hotel was once the old Banqueting Hall, still showing its timbered beams.

There are three known ghosts - a small boy that can be seen in the Parliament restaurant occassionally and has appeared in a guest's photograph, a ghostly monk that hangs around in reception, but the most active is Alice Millar.
Alice was a chambermaid at the hotel and was killed by a lover.
Alice has regularly been heard whispering and even talking to staff. There are recent accounts of people's hair being pulled and a womans voice appearing on a video taken in one of the rooms, with no obvious cause.

The original rooms still have their original wattle and daub beams. They are also, obviously, the most haunted.

Epping Forest District Museum is housed in an original Tudor House on the main high street in Waltham Abbey, Essex. Waltham Abbey is one of those towns whose history is interwoven with that of its most important building, the Abbey itself.

The early settlement at Waltham (a forest homestead) was made by men who sailed up the River Lea from the Thames Estuary and built their huts as far as they dared venture from the main stream; twelve and a half miles was a long distance in Saxon times.

Whilst there isn't any history of who lived in this particular Tudor House, we know from the workmanship of the doorways and fireplaces that it was someone who had money, possibly a merchant.

Whilst workmen were working on the recent Museum upgrades they often felt something in a particular room, as tools and other items would go missing or be moved. They dubbed this room the 'haunted room'.

Harwich Redoubt Fort in Harwich, Essex was constructed between 1808 and 1810 to protect the port of Harwich against the threat of Napoleonic invasion. The fort was constructed on a hill, which allowed views in all directions.

French prisoners of war were made to help construct the fort. The fort has a central parade ground. It was originally armed with ten 24 pounder cannons. In 1861 a 68 pounder cannon was added to the fort's weapon range.

Later in 1903 three 12 pounder QF guns were added to the fort. Despite the ongoing modernisation no shot was fired in force. In the 1920s the redoubt was falling into disrepair. The fort was briefly used during the Second World War to house British troops awaiting trial. Restoration started in 1969 and still continues today.

Ghostly Activity
Witnesses have reportedly seen apparitions through the windows and heard unexplained footsteps. Many visitors to the fort have also reported being touched by unseen hands in the lower casements. There have also been many other mysterious noises and apparitions seen by visitors.

The fort is well known for the apparition of a headless soldier. In 1972 a soldier was decapitated by a cable attached to a 12 ton cannon which broke under the strain. It is rumoured that this soldier now roams the fort.

Colchester Town Hall was built from 1898 and the building was opened by Prime Minister Lord Rosebery in May 1902.

The Town Hall Architect John Belcher extensively used sculptures and artworks throughout the building. The spectacular Italian marble staircase dominates the hall. The entrance alone offers an inviting reception for all types of occasions and there are outstanding function rooms still used for their original purpose.

Colchester Town Hall has stood on the same site since the 12th century. The 162-foot clock tower was presented by James Paxman; it is topped by a figure of St Helena, patron Saint of the City.

As the oldest recorded Roman town in Britain, Colchester is claimed to be the oldest town in Britain on the grounds that it was mentioned by Pliny the Elder, who died in AD 79.

Staff at the Town Hall have heard doors slam in the basements (these used to be holding cells) and the Security staff have heard loud footsteps and seeing a little girl running on the first floor when they have been locking up.

Colchester Town Hall and the Red Lion Hotel

Colchester Town Hall has stood on the same site since the 12th century. The Red Lion Hotel in Colchester is a historical Grade I listed building dating back to 1465.

The Red Lion Hotel is a known hot spot for ghostly activity (maid, monks, children), the Town Hall has had lots of ghostly activity but these are largely unreported, apart from the children's footsteps and voices heard by the security as they lock up.

We investigate both these venues on one night as part of our six hour ghost hunt, get the best of both venues in this non-stop ghost hunt.

Kelvedon Hatch, Secret Nuclear Bunker in Brentwood, Essex started its life as an RAF ROTOR Station, originally built in 1952 by the Air Ministry, then a brief period as a civil defence centre through to its most recent life as a Regional Government HQ.

Designed for up to 600 military and civilian personnel, possibly even the Prime Minister, their collective task being to organise the survival of the population in the aftermath of a nuclear war.

The bunker was decommissioned in 1992 and bought back into private ownership.

Ghostly Activity
Apparitions have been seen roaming the floors, moving room to room. Apparently witnesses have described it as taking the form of an 'tall elderly lady'.

An RAF officer has been spotted and visitors have had the frightening experience of a woman in uniform who instructs them to leave the building!

A similar experience was also reported by a visitor walking through the dormitory. One of the main locations for paranormal activity is the sick bay, dark shadows are often seen here.
