Spend a night in a haunted house with an expert ghost-finder. Dare you?????
Alasdair’s recommended Ghost hunting experience
This is the one that everybody is buying. Dare you?
Do you guarantee I’ll see a ghost?
No is the short answer. One of the things about ghosts is that they don’t take a lot of notice of what those of us on this side want. However, some of these experiences, especially the overnight ones, in really haunted locations, give you as good a chance as you’re ever likely to get.
So what happens then?
It depends on which experience you buy, so check out the detail. In fact there are all kinds of ghost-hunting trips, from a bus tour of haunted sites, taxi trips, walking tours right up to (and this is the only one worth bothering with in our opinion) spending a night with an experienced ghost-finder in a well-known haunted location.
The others are OK for a laugh, but on this overnight one, when the witching hour has passed, you get the chance to soak up the haunted atmosphere and learn from your guide the things to look for and the best ways to attract ghostly attention.
And all hopefully without your hair turning white overnight!
It’s often a good idea to share the experience with mates or family – makes talking about it afterwards so much more rewarding – but if you go on your own there’ll be a committed bunch of ghost-seekers with you to help you get the most out of it.
Of course, there’ll be people who scoff and say that they don’t believe in ghosts. But that’s easy enough to say in broad daylight with loads of people around you. It’s quite another thing to say it at two o’clock in the morning in the dark in a haunted house with creaking and strange sounds emanating from you know not where!
So now you know you want to do it, buy my recommended one, or if you can’t make that, check out the full list of all ghost-hunting experiences below.
I’ve got together all the ones in the UK for you with prices updated every day.
If you’ve got kids, then the bus or walking tours should be fun.

Or why not buy an overnight ghost hunt as a special birthday present? It’s original, it’s thoughtful, and it will be appreciated too.
