Fancy being scared out of your wits? On the night of Saturday 16 February 2019 Steelhouse Lane Lock Up will be opening its doors to ghost hunters. Walk in the footsteps and feel the presence of prisoners gone by who were held in this Grade II listed Victorian prison during its 120 year history.
This intimidating and sinister building still has many of its original features and was once the most feared place in Birmingham’s slums. Some of the prison’s occupants have included mass murderer Fred West and members of the notorious Peaky Blinders.
Imagine being an inmate taken along the basement tunnel which links to the adjacent Victorian courts. Dare you spend the midnight hours immersed in this menacing atmosphere! Listen out for boots pacing the cells, the slamming of heavy doors and the terrifying screams.
The event costs £40 and starts at 8pm.
Location: Steelhouse Lane, Birmingham city centre, B4
