Fancy spending a terrifying night at the Abandoned Newsham Park Hospital?

This event actually fills us with utter dread, but it is PERFECT for any lover of all things paranormal. You could spend the night actual real life ghost hunting in one of the countries most haunted and eerie buildings and guess what, it’s right here in Liverpool.

The Abandoned Newsham Park Hospital and Orphanage, just off West Derby Road was built in 1870 and Dusk Till Dawn Events have very kindly invited you to spend the night ghost hunting at this extreme and terrifying location.

This ghost hunt is sure to tick all the boxes for avid ghost hunters and anyone looking for the ultimate fear factor experience.

The vast grade 11 listed Victorian building was designed by Alfred Waterhouse; who also designed the Manchester Town Hall and the Natural History Museum in London. It lies on 3.5 acres of private fenced off land and has an interior size of 99,000 sq ft.


It overlooks 200 acres of our beautiful Newsham Park and is said to be one of the most haunted places not only in Liverpool, but the whole of the UK. Now derelict the old Hospital’s historical background is that of an Orphanage, and then a Hospital and in later life an Old Person’s Nursing Home. This building is massive in size with so many spooky Corridors, Dens and Rooms to get lost in.

On the upper floors of the building the old Hospital Wards can be found along with a Bell Tower, Chapel, eerie Staircase’s and the all time ultimate; the Mortuary with fridges still intact! This building has lain dormant and desolate for many years and much of the paranormal activity that is said to have occurred has been reported by security staff whilst patrolling the location.


Whispering echoing voices are said to have been heard along with dark shadowed figures which have been seen fleeing up the stairs and corridors; as if eager not to be seen by onlookers.

Strangely Workmen have also reported that tools that they had been using; were moved without explanation only to find them in other parts of the building. The Abandoned Newsham Park Hospital and Orphanage has an intense and foreboding atmosphere which hits you upon entering the venue; we know that you will not want to miss the opportunity to investigate this amazing horror movie style location.

A terrifying place of sorrow, fear and much emotion who knows what will happen during the night of your stay.

Dusk Till Dawn Events have this unique building for an entire night’s investigation and you have the chance to join in your very own Ghost Hunt.

You will have full use of Ghost Hunting Equipment and you can take part in various experiments such as Table Tipping and Glass Divination and watch and wait Vigils throughout the Night in the most active parts of the location.

So if this floats your boat then get booking your tickets, don’t forget your torches and of course your cameras to picture all of the terrifying action, we will sit this one out!

The nights run every Friday until January and return again in February and March and tickets are priced at £49.00.
