Built on the site of the 12th century medieval St. John’s Hospital, this elegant stone mansion was to be the home of the Stoughton family. In the 1660’s the house was extensively altered, and enlarged to it’s present size. By the end of the 18th. century the house had become a private school, and at the start of the 20th century was being used as a records office by the army.

In 1960 the County Council bought the property and, a year later, opened it as a branch of the County Museum, dealing with folk life, costume and the history of the Royal Warwickshire Regiment. Museum.

A hidden gem of paranormal activity awaits Fright Nights as we take you on a ghost hunt within the heart of medieval Warwick.  St John’s House has a sinister history dating back to the 1100’s.

The reported ghostly activities include: disembodied voices, laughter, and footsteps. Dark shadows have also been witnessed wandering the various, now empty rooms.

What will you encounter on your overnight ghost hunt with Fright Nights?

The known history of the land on which St John’s House stands, dates back to 1154. At this time, it was given to the establishment of the Hospital of St John the Baptist and founded by the 3rd Earl of Warwick, with the purpose of offering accommodation to wayfarers, pilgrims and poor within the local area.

With a cemetery once attached to the hospital, skeletons of medieval origin have been unearthed within the roads surrounding St John’s House.
