Ettington Park

Ettington Park, the imposing Victorian mansion, is frightening enough to look at without venturing inside. Its scary neo-gothic architecture make it look like the architypal haunted house - so much so it featured in the classic 1963 shocker The Haunting.

Ettington Park may now be a magnificent four-star hotel but its spirits ignore the guests and appear at will and have terrified visitors and staff alike for many years.

Among the tales reported by white-faced guests are of a Phantom Lady in white who roams the corridors at night.

Lady Emma, as she has been dubbed, has been seen by many swishing along the cloistered terrace before melting into a solid wall. Visitors have also reported feeling fabric stroked across their faces while in bed and cold spots at various points around the building.


The WeekendHaunts event will begin with your arrival on Friday evening in time to enjoy a delicious 3 course dinner. There will then be a Q&A session and a walk-around preliminary investigation prior to the main event involving our medium plus psychic entertainment.

On Saturday you are free to explore the town of Thetford or just relax in the lovely surrounds of Ettington Park.

Saturday evening commences with another 3 course meal before the night’s full paranormal investigation by one of the UK's top investigative teams consisting of a Group Tour with mediums; Group Vigils and Séances with mediums followed by full discussion and debrief of findings.
