Most Haunted! at Preston Manor, Brighton
Is Preston Manor the most haunted house in Brighton?
LIVINGtv's Most Haunted! team seemed to think so.
For the episode filmed at Preston Manor, the TV crew experienced one of their most active nights of paranormal activity. Yvette Fielding, the show's host, said 'We were thrilled by our experiences at Preston Manor. The house has a fascinating history and our investigations were more than fully rewarded. Karl is convinced he was confronted by the Manor's White Lady!'
Tales of ghostly sightings and supernatural experiences at Preston Manor go back through history, including Sister Agnes, the medieval nun who helped travellers on their way; a body buried under the patio; a disembodied hand floating by the four-poster bed; the White Lady and the elegant Lady in Grey who descends the grand staircase with nowhere to go. One friendly ghost was even seen trying out a child's toy tractor during the 1960s.
The reports continue with modern day sightings of non-existent visitors, doors locking themselves and lights turning off for no reason, and the ghostly hand holding onto a doorknob.
The staff of Preston Manor invite you to share their experiences at a series of events and activities in the house, including Twilight Tours and ghost tours for families.
