How can we help you? Why should you advertise your pubs as haunted?

There is a growing dark tourism. Being haunted is good for business. Tourists from all over the world want to stay at haunted establishments or at least tour them. Some pubs thrive upon claiming a haunted presence. We are aware of over 1800 haunted hostelries. So, that's over 3% of all UK public houses and it's rising. So, do you have haunted hostelries?

How can this work for your haunted hostelries?

At minimum, your pubs could opt to be included in a regular ghost tour. This can bring more people to your pubs. You may even be interested in hosting other paranormal events, such as, séances, psychic nights, tarot readings, and a ghost hunt. If you provide accommodation then being haunted would work even better for you. Even if we do not offer the specific paranormal service that you require ourselves, we would still endeavour to put you in contact with those who would fulfil your needs. Nonetheless, we are well stocked; one of our tour guides frighteningly resembles Bruce Campbell (Ash, the star of the classic Evil Dead film).

Are you thinking of new ways to fill your venue without it costing you a single penny?

Have you thought of holding a Paranormal Evening? We specialise in club and pub events and we promote these evenings throughout the United Kingdom. We feel this is an excellent opportunity for you to fill your establishment on an evening, if you are very quiet or even almost closed. You do not have to worry about the marketing as we will design the poster and email it over to you. All you have to do is print a few out, put them up around your establishment, and take the bookings! It really is that simple. If this is something that interests you, please respond to us as early as possible as dates are filling up. We are already taking repeat bookings.

How can we help your public house, hotel, or inn, make money?

We can help you if your establishment is supernaturally inhabited, you wish to be incorporated in a haunted tour, or you are interested in providing a venue for paranormal events. We are officially recognised by the paranormal community and those connected with pub houses. We have been in the press recently too (see above). We are the largest website outlet dedicated to haunted hostelries. More than that, we are in contact with highly respected mediums, psychics, and so forth. And that's only the tip of the iceberg: we get a high volume of web traffic. If you would like to know more then tweet to us at @ghost_pubs

Hello there,

Data quality is important and this is reflected in our website. We have not succeeded in finding an adequate service to validate addresses of public house that uses the actual town where the pub is located. There are validation services that validate to postal town. However, these are inadequate, as the postal town does not always reflect the actual town. In addition, such services roll-up nearby villages, which are outside the town (postal or otherwise), as being located in that town. For example, Whitburn is a village outside of the town of Sunderland. So, it is not actually in Sunderland. Nonetheless, postal town validators categorize this village as being in the postal town of Sunderland. To say, however, that Whitburn is in Sunderland would be incorrect. Whitburn is not an isolated example. There are hundreds of examples we could mention. Therefore, postal town is not a category that we would care to use. For this reason, we validate against services that use local Authority instead. This ensures more accurate information.

Thanks in advance for the interest.

Kindest regards,

The Ghost Pubs Team
