In case you want to see the most activity, visit between October and December for a peak in occurrences. Around this time, you might see full-bodied apparitions in the corridors, become mysterously sick within the cells, feel suffocated, uneasy, and watched, all while encountering a variety of sinister ghosts including The Hanging Ghost (who hangs from doorways), a woman with an ascot, poltergeist activity, and other beings which are considered ‘pure evil’.
