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.

This 3 story building below Elvet Bridge is a former house of correction with what were dungeons & a mortuary created in 1632. Horrific conditions of the prison cells were regarded as the country’s worst & many inmates never left alive. The most famous was a piper named Jimmy Allen. It’s believed his eerie pipe music can still be heard here some nights. People have also heard a whispery female voice & seen shadowy figures. Some have felt as though they’ve been scratched, pushed or even punched by unseen hands.

A former infirmary, operating theatre & mortuary. Created 1877 for those unfortunate enough to suffer injury or even death at the hands of the hard and often dangerous labor at the Iron company. Being built on site of what was once a hanging ground for both worst of criminals & even witches may add to the strange phenomena of muffled voices, ghostly mists & a man that likes to move things
