The Haunted 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
FEATURED HAUNTED HOTEL: The Black Boy Inn, Caernarfon
To the rear of the Black Boy there was once a convent which probably accounts for the many sightings of a ghostly nun seen walking through the building.
Many guests have heard the sound of a phantom child crying in one of the inn’s bedrooms.
Apparently, if you ask whether the child is OK it stops crying!
Members of staff and punters alike have reported seeing a ghostly figure of a man sitting in the bar area of the pub just watching people.
And a senior member of staff was certain they saw a ghostly apparition of a woman in the bar area when they were working late one night.
