Jamaica Inn, Cornwall
Since Yvette Fielding and her team of ghost hunters first appeared on our televisions in 2002, they've visited hundreds of haunted locations around the country, including a total of 22 episodes filmed in the West Country.

The South West is a hotbed for paranormal activity. It's home to two infamous haunted pubs, the Jamaica Inn and the Ancient Ram Inn. It's said to be haunted by the notorious pirate Blackbeard, and the engineer Isambard Kingdom Brunel.

The team first visited the area in series one, when they investigated the Athelhampton Hall in Dorchester and visited Avebury in Wiltshire, home of an ancient stone circle and the haunted Red Lion Pub.

As well as these 22 episodes, the team also came to the South West for three 'Most Haunted Live!' shows. The first of which was at Woodchester Mansion, Gloucestershire in 2003. In 2005 the team headed to Devon for a three-night long live investigation in Brixham, where they visited Lupton House, The Globe Hotel, Brixham Heritage Museum, The Smugglers' Haunt, and Berry Pomeroy Castle.

And in 2007 the team came to Bristol for a live show where they investigated some of the ghosts associated with the city's history of smugglers and slavery. Over the three nights they visited the Transylvanian Room, Desert Tower, The Hanging Gallery, Guards Passage Way, Old Gate Tower, White Tower, Bethlen Wing, the Painted Tower, New Gate Tower, Torture Tower, and Knights Hall.

The show took a hiatus in 2010, and since its return five years later the team are yet to return to the South West of England. Below is a complete list of every location in the South West that the team have visited.
