If you ever wondered what it would be like to take part in a paranormal investigation in the reputedly haunted Derby Gaol, you need wonder no more!

The Gaol is available for overnight hire, whether you want to conduct your own paranormal investigation, experience the atmosphere of the old Gaol, or just celebrate your Hen or Stag night in a kooky and original manner.

There is a minimum allocation of 15 people and a maximum of 30 people. Prices are set at 35.00 per person (Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays) and 30 per person (Monday - Thursday). Bar facilities are available on request for each vigil but bar prices are not included in the overnight fee.

Overnight vigils are now available EVERY NIGHT throughout the year. If you would like to check availability and enquire about booking the Gaol, please CLICK HERE.

It may also be advisable to bring along some extra provisions... such as spare loo roll... if some of the eerie reports are anything to go by!

Overnight Vigils can be booked by Paranormal Groups/Companies at a reduced rate. Please call 01335 360 882 to arrange your investigation.
