Completed in 1867 The Grand Hotel was one of the largest hotels in the world, as well as one of the first giant purpose-built hotels in Europe.The building is designed around the theme of time: four towers to represent the seasons, 12 floors for the months of the year, 52 chimneys symbolise the weeks, and originally there were 365 bedrooms, one for each day of the year.On May 24th 1849, Anne and Charlotte Bronte left their home in Haworth for a holiday in Scarborough. They stayed in the cottages which stood on the site of the present Grand Hotel. Unfortunately, Anne was very ill at the time and she died on the 28th May in the cottages.Visitors have commented on strange encounters & some have even left after witnessing poltergeist activity in their rooms, doors vigorously shaking & knocking with no one present in the corridor. Sounds of screaming, singing & laughter are heard & most commonly old fashioned music. Various apparitions are seen but none more so frequent than the lady wearing a long red dress. Could this be the spirit of Anne Bronte?So you have seen all the paranormal shows on TV. Well now is your chance to become an investigator. We pride ourselves on our scientific research and we are a gadget friendly group although we also like to use old school original methods of contacting spirits which include Ouija boards, table tipping and human pendulum. Although we do enjoy our gadgets, we are big believers that the best tool for the night is yourself. Open up all your senses.
Nothing is faked and we can't make the spirits perform– what you see is what you get! A real, paranormal investigation.
What will you uncover when the lights go out? Only the brave will dare!!
