The Guildhall

You are here Home  > Historical Buildings >  The Guildhall

The library is known for the White Lady (who is also said to move furniture around). In the courtyard, a ghostly cat and dog are seen, a cavalier is reported, and the spirit of a policeman has made his presence known. Burglar alarms are also known to go off for no reason.

  1. Mr clint cooke  |  

    We had a day out here at guildhall leicester.
    We have no clue how to manipulate images and my wife took a pic with the device you see in the shot.
    We looked at the shot at the time and it was totally normal. My wife doesn’t have misty white eyes nor a white moustache in normal life. Nor does she have random apparitions showing over her shoulder despite being a sensitive who has seen apparitions in her youth.
    She has closed herself off from this as much as she can now but she is still intrigued by the spirit realm.

  2. I have seen and heard the Cavalier here. Unfortunately no photograph but I definitely saw and heard him. My friend did too. During the Civil War, Leicester was reluctant to commit to either side, remaining neutral for as long as possible. When it was forced to choose, it came down in the side of Cromwell and his Roundheads. Prince Rupert held Leicester under siege. Therefore, a Cavalier is somewhat unusual unless he had come to appeal to the Civic leaders to change their allegiance.

  3. Please can you give me the exact location? Can you email me with the details, as I am a criminologist that is really on to these type of paranormal things. If you could give a respond it would be amazing. @My email its Please respond, I’m looking for a solution to something. Thank you.
