The Park Hotel, Morecambe
If you're feeling brave, you could spend the whole weekend hunting ghosts in the vast and formidable, Park Hotel, which now stands abandoned on Morecambe seafront.

The Park Hotel is known for its ghostly goings on, with reports of the sounds of children running through the empty corridors, disembodied screams, sightings of a male apparition, and a sinister black shape lurking in the basement. With access to all six of the historic hotel's floors, what better way to get a feel for a haunted location of this scale by staying there for two nights.

The event takes place from November 25 - 27 and is hosted exclusively by North East based paranormal team, Lone Vigils. Guests will arrive on the Friday at 9pm and get stuck into the first night of investigation.

Those brave enough to embark on this weekend-long ghost hunting event will be following in the footsteps of Nick Groff and Katrina Weidman, who spent 72 hours locked down inside the grand hotel while filming an episode of the 'Paranormal Lockdown'.

Upon entering the hotel in the 2019 episode of the show, Katrina said "I instantly feel transported back to another time, it reminds me a little bit of horror movies but also these kind of fantasies I've had about what it must have been like to be in that time period." Nick added, "it's very haunting, it's very chilling."

The Park Hotel was built in 1895 by Edmond Park, England's wealthiest and most influential were drawn to the luxury establishment, but it was rumoured that after hours Park held séances and strange occult rituals. He mysteriously disappeared in 1899, never to be seen again. Many think that he was murdered in the hotel, cursing the property and his spirit has never left. The story of the curse it well known throughout the town.

Locals say a young soldier drowned in the sea and was brought back to the hotel, where he was pronounced dead. They also tell the tale of a woman named Emma Manson, who was murdered by her husband on the second floor and his body was found hanging in the tower. Another man took his life on the tower too, hanging himself from the outside.

Staff and visitors in the hotel have heard disembodied screams, seen phantom apparitions in the hallways and witnessed a child spirit roaming the building. Lights are said to turn themselves on and off and the property's manager has even caught a demonic face on CCTV.

A two-night stay in the abandoned Victorian hotel will give you a good chance of investigating some of these alleged hauntings for yourself, guided by Lone Vigils Paranormal Investigations. The team, headed up by Chris and Clare, have been running events for over three years and have received great feedback from previous guests, earning them a reputation as one of the best paranormal events companies in the North East.

However Lone Vigil's guests will be able to enjoy breakfast, lunch and dinner at the hotel. Across the weekend, the team will also be holding various workshops, and a paranormal quiz on the Saturday evening before the second night of the investigation.
