Built in 1863, the stunning Grade II Victorian Grand Hotel overlooks the town’s harbour & South Bay, standing out amongst all others. In 2017 it was named one of the top 10 places to stay. With a long & varied history it is no wonder the hotel is haunted.

Will you join East & South Yorkshire on this their first visit to investigate at this hotel. With its history of bombings during the first World War, where in 1914, at the start of World War I. as the fighting reached the British shores, The Grand Hotel was one of the many costal buildings to be damaged. On December 16th 1914, it was estimated that around 30 German artillery shells hit the hotel by the German Navy, with its battlecruisers, primarily destroying the restaurant. Although badly damaged, the Grand Hotel went on to recover and become a base in the Second World War.

During World War II several RAF men were stationed at the hotel. Anti-aircraft guns were mounted on each of the hotel’s four turrets, making the building a base for the trainee cadets. In turn, the RAF could defend the hotel, preventing another incident like the one from the previous war. After the damage to the hotel during the 20th century, renovation costs came to around £100,000 to get the Grand Hotel back into shape, which took more than two years to complete.

In more recent years, the hotel served as a base for SAS agents when the Iranian embassy was under siege. The hotel was used for covert training meant to prepare the agents for further terrorist threats. Notorious for its hauntings, what will we discover on the night. Who still walks the corridors?
