Come and join Simply Ghost Nights into a whole different world.

Join Simply Ghost Nights as we go to the Vagrants Block on a ghost hunting event where you can investigate the Governors boardroom, the Nurses station and Bathing area, the Vagrants bedrooms and the Morgue and many more areas on a ghost hunt.

Completely exclusive to Simply Ghost Nights Ripon Museum is a very active location. Step back in time and take in the atmosphere of the doom and gloom the poor unfortunate residents of the workhouse would have felt from the moment they stepped through the door.

"Hush-a-bye baby, on a tree top. When you grow old, your wages will stop. When you have spent the little you made. First to the poorhouse and then to the grave."...... This rhyme tells the story of many a working man's life in the 19th Century. The rather elegant building in Allhallowgate, standing in grounds graced with flower beds, trees, lilacs and even a passion flower, seems far removed from the dreaded Workhouse in Oliver Twist.

 

A feeling of doom or at best hopeless resignation must have fallen on many passing through the Gatehouse arch and hearing the door shut behind them. They knew they would leave only in the regulation coffin, 'with two handles, name of the person with the year of their decease inscribed'. Coffins were ordered in bulk.

Come and join us on this paranormal investigation for just £39.00pp
