Haunted Durham - Ghost Tours Durham - Durham Ghosts

Durham CathedralBoth Durham City and the wider area of County Durham, with castles, cathedral, stately homes and industrial heritage has a number of hauntings.

In Durham Cathedral it is said that a secret passage runs from the cathedral to Finchale Abbey, though the journey is so terrifying no person can survive it. In Durham Prison a ground floor cell is haunted by the scene of one prisoner murdering another with a knife. In Durham Castle the wife of one of the former Prince Bishops of Durham haunts the black staircase where she fell down and broke her neck.

In Lumley Castle ghostly monks are sometimes seen walking in file around the area of the castle, while Lady Lumley walks within the castle's corridors and grounds. An Australian cricket player reported seeing the monks in 2005.
