The Haunting of the Midland Hotel
Marine Road West, Morecambe LA4 4BU
Morecambe’s stunning Art Deco Midland Hotel is situated along Marine Road on the seafront in the seaside town.
The Grade II* listed Streamline Moderne hotel dates back to 1933 and was designed by architect Oliver Hill and had sculptures by Eric Gill and murals by Eric Ravilious.
The hotel may seem quite familiar to you as it’s been used in episodes of the TV series Agatha Christie’s Poirot.
During the Second War World the Midland was requisitioned for use as an RAF hospital.
During that time the basement was used as a morgue which has led to the hotel getting a reputation for being haunted…
Terrified witnesses have seen a thin ghostly apparition within and around the hotel’s lift!Click Here to Stay in the Midland Hotel
