Beware....explore the haunted Shepton Mallet!

Rumour has it that Shepton Mallet Prison is the most haunted jail in the world – come and investigate to see what lurks behind the high prison walls in the dead of night.

You'll be met by your tour guides for the evening at the imposing gates, where your tour begins.

Your guides have an exceptional knowledge of the prison, in particular the ghostly tales, the legends and the spooky experiences that regularly occur.

Guided by torchlight, you'll delve into the ghostly world of the spirits – experience the strange silence that fills the grounds and the damp walls carrying only the faintest echo of what’s left behind.

What to expect on your Ghost tour....

You will be taken into the depths of this historic building and experience the darker side of the prison. You’ll listen in horror as you’re told of the sinister side of jail life – torture, murder and hangings; the last execution took place just 75 years ago. Everybody has their own tales to tell and own experiences to relate – what will you discover?

One of the most legendary spirits is the “White Lady”. This heartbroken murderess is known to sweep through the wing, bringing a cold wind in her wake, taunting prison staff and inmates alike for decades. Will you see her?
