Dorchester Ghost Hunting Nights / Dorchester Ghost Hunting Experiences

Ghost Hunts Dorchester Prison 

Located in Dorchester, the abandoned prison is a notorious place due to its reputation of being haunted. Visitors have reported hearing cell doors slamming shut, keys jangling, and even voices and cold spots. The eerie atmosphere is further augmented by the occasional sound of a piano and the sudden appearance of shadowy figures. Despite feeling nervous, you can join our overnight ghost hunt and help investigate who or what haunts this terrifying building.


During your Ghost Hunt at Dorchester Prison, you'll be in for an unforgettable experience. The echoing silence of this daunting and formidable location will keep you on your toes. You won't need to imagine how difficult it was for those who were imprisoned here, given the harshness of their surroundings. You'll be able to investigate the empty cells at night where prisoners were left to suffer in private.


The prison was designed to be a cold and harsh environment to punish all those who were placed here. An overnight ghost hunt will evoke any spirits who still reside in the foreboding and sinister Dorchester Prison.

History Of Dorchester Prison

The Dorchester Prison was built in 1154 on the site of a medieval castle, boasting a rich history that spans centuries. Dorchester Prison was completed in 1795 and was a place of many executions. One of the most famous executions in history was that of Martha Brown. Thomas Hardy was amongst the audience of nearly 3000 people. In those days, hanging was considered entertainment, and he was only a young man of 16 years old. However, he was shocked and disturbed by what he witnessed, and this experience may have influenced his writing of Tess of the D'Urbervilles. It is possible that his description of Tess's hanging was influenced by what he saw as a young man.

The last public hanging in England took place on August 10, 1858, at Dorchester Prison. James Seale was executed for murder.

Dorchester Prison is a place of significant historical importance. While it has a dark past of executions and deaths, it also has a rich history that we intend to explore during an overnight ghost hunt. 


Plans have been made to deconsecrate the ground of Dorchester Prison, where the bodies of executed prisoners and other deceased inmates still remain. These remains will be relocated to their final resting place.
