History & Haunting
The Morecambe Winter Gardens is an extremely haunted theatre and a firm favourite of ours.
Once known as the Victorian Pavilion, it opened in 1897 and could seat over 2000 people. At the time it boasted a ballroom, a number of bar’s, a billiard hall and even an aquarium. Now it stands just as proudly on the Morecambe sea front and whilst it closed it’s doors in the late 1970’s, the building which was suffering structurally at the time, now pulls in visitors from around the country.
The land which the Morecambe Winter Gardens stands on is of an old sea water baths and some of these features can still be seen in on of the dark cellar areas.
Designed by architects Magnall and Littlewood was originally built as an extension to the existing Winter Gardens complex which has since been demolished.
There are countless reports of paranormal activity at this location ranging from knocking and banging to full on apparitions and poltergeist activity.
The Winter Gardens was visited by Most Haunted in 2008 and ghost hunts at this amazing place have left many people terrified and others refuse to spend time alone in many of the areas here.
There are reports of dark and sinister apparitions and many visitors have felt extremely uncomfortable, particularly in the area of the stage.
There are reports of a former performer at the theatre who still performs on the stage and likes to make themselves known to all visitors.
Ghost hunts here can be one of the scariest experiences most people will ever encounter.
