It is 1813… and the medieval streets and vaults of Southampton are long hidden by time. But beyond the tourist trail lies a dark trail of secrets, ghosts and of an underclass or murderers and thieves. Southampton is now a regency spa town, the wealthy and fashionable flock to take the waters; while militia and soldiers also swarm the town while war rages in France. Join us we bring these stories to life in a truly immersive experience as ghosts of the past come to tell their tales from a truly unique perspective.

You will learn a little, you will laugh a little - but hopefully you will scream a lot…
