Abbey House in Leeds Overnight Ghost Hunting Events

Abbey House Museum Leeds Ghost Hunt 

Saturday 25th March 2023 7 pm - Midnight Only £49.00 Per Person

Abbey House Museum Leeds Ghost hunting Events / Ghost Hunting Experiences 

Let’s start by taking a step back in time and take a walk back in time through the “Victorian streets” complete with shops, a public house, an old schoolroom and even funeral directors, to name a few.

The location is stunning by day, however as darkness falls this building certainly has a different feel!

The building runs along the side of Kirkstall Abbey; the Abbey House Museum is part of the former gatehouse founded in 1152 and is within the current structure. It is no wonder that this former Abbey Gatehouse is rife with paranormal activity. On the ground floor that now forms the Victorian Streets, many visitors have reported the feeling of their hair being pulled along with being grabbed or pushed; a full apparition of a man was sighted and reported in the Victorian Schoolhouse at the end of the second street. There have also been many reports from both staff and visitors of strange loud bangs and taps coming from areas where nobody is present; some visitors to the museum have reported the smell of stale tobacco smoke. The Upper floor doors have been seen opening and closing by unseen hands; many believe this floor is haunted by John Ripley, the last abbot of Kirkstall to have lived here; he is also buried within the grounds. There have also been sightings of a monk on this floor. Join the Paranormal Eye Team as we invite you to be part of this intense ghost hunt at the eerie Former abbey gatehouse. Who will you encounter? 

Some History Of Abbey House Museum 

Abbey House Museum in Leeds was initially the inner gatehouse for Kirkstall Abbey, a 12th-century Cistercian monastery founded by monks from Fountains Abbey. The museum shows what life was like in Victorian Leeds, with beautifully-recreated street scenes. Step into a 19th-century house, shop, and pub, and see what life was like for 19th-century children in the Childhood Galleries.

Kirkstall Abbey was founded as a daughter house of Fountains Abbey in 1147. Twelve monks and an abbot from Fountains established an abbey at Barnoldswick, near Skipton. After five years at Barnoldswick, the monks moved to a new site at Kirkstall, on the River Aire.

Kirkstall Abbey lasted until Henry VIII suppressed it in 1539. The gatehouse had its arched entrance passage blocked at both ends to be transformed into a residence.

Over the next four centuries, it served as a farmhouse and as the home of the Butler family, who operated the nearby Kirkstall Forge. Leeds City Council purchased Abbey House in 1926. The Council opened the house to the public as a museum of bygones and folklore in 1927. In the 1950s, three historical streets scenes were added to the museum.

The museum was refurbished and updated in 2001 with a dozen new street scenes, recreating life in Leeds around 1880. Visitors can now stroll along accurately recreated Victorian streets and step inside shops, pubs, and houses.

Abbey House Museum is both a historic house and a museum rolled into one. One feature is the De Lacy Room in the south wing. Initially used as a stable and hayloft, this room was a library by 1870 and a dining room by 1902. The De Lacy Room has a beautiful plasterwork ceiling installed by Colonel T Walter Harding, who lived here from 1890.

Hi guys, thanks for the most brilliant night. I'll never forget about that certain room, and everything is fine. I'm sure that little girl followed me around the museum

It wasn’t quite what I was expecting… it’s actually exceeded my expectations,

Having never done this before (I always wanted to), my mind was open, and it was definitely an experience! And it’s just made me so much more curious!

So thankful for the experience, and I hope we cross paths again! Xx
