The Main Event

Do you dare take a walk around one of the world’s most haunted prisons, Shepton Mallet? Or tour the "6th Dark Tourism Destination in the World", Shrewsbury Prison?

On this ghost tour, you'll be told tales of the sinister side of prison life such as the torture, murders, and hangings, and when you think the last execution at Shrewsbury Prison was only 63 years ago… Who knows what you might see…!

Guided only by torchlight, the grounds may be silent, but you can still hear the echoes of what was.

If you choose Shrewsbury Prison, you'll be transported back to 1793, to the days of public executions. You'll hear of how the prisoners were treated and of all the ghostly encounters over the past 200 years. Follow in the footsteps of "Shadow Man", Shrewsbury Prison's most seen spirit and explore the original Georgian prison below ground, this is one experience you'll never forget!

Shepton Mallet is said to be the most haunted in the world, now it's time to see for yourself. Guided by torchlight, this tour gives you a true gritty look at what happened here over the last 400 years. Listen to the sinister tales including that of the "White Lady", the heartbroken murderess, will you see her perhaps? The former female wing of the jail has attracted many ghost hunters with its notoriety of being the most haunted area in this prison. Some say they have witnessed hauntings coming directly from the walls of the prison, as there are many unmarked graves of executed prisoners still laying here.

Great Reviews

  • Well worth a visit

    I'll be honest, I was surprised at how good this was! We had the tour of Shrewsbury prison and the guide was really informative and entertaining, the history of that place is so interesting. Well worth a visit.

  • spooky tour

    We did the haunted ghost prison tour and had an amazing time, our guide was excellent and knew so much about the prison and its "ghosts". Even if ghosts aren't your thing, I think you'd still have a great time. The prison is well worth a visit in itself and Shrewsbury is a lovely town to wander around too.
