Top 4 most haunted places in Leeds: 

Do you believe in ghosts? For these locations in Leeds the evidence is overwhelming. Take a look at our top three haunted places in Leeds…

Thackray Medical Museum (Leeds Asylum)

Thackray Medical Museum is said to be one of the most haunted places in Leeds. This is no surprise, as it was once a work house and then Leeds Asylum.  There have been many ghostly sightings over the years, particularly of a man in a white coat who walks the Victorian street; and a woman can be seen in one of the top windows waving at guests that come to visit.

Abbey House Museum

Abbey House Museum is just across from the famous Kirkstall Abbey. Both of these locations are well known for their spooky happenings. Locals that have lived in the area from the 1920-1940s have often spoke of hearing noises from midnight onwards. Strange occurrences such as doors slamming, footsteps and noises that cannot be accounted for. In the 1940’s a mother and daughter were walking the grounds of Abbey House when they came across a frightened monk wearing traditional brown robes and habit. He was said to have been so frantic he couldn’t speak and disappeared soon after with no explanation of where he came from.

Armely Mills

There is plenty to keep you awake at night at Armley Mills. There have been several accounts of doors swinging open and slamming shut, as if someone still walks around the mill at night. There has been many sightings of a little boy crying sat in the corner of the mill. It was said that he died in the mill. There have also been sightings of a man in a top hat walking around and a woman in a black dress. During tours many visitors have expressed the feeling of being forcefully pushed,  but have no idea how to explain it.

The house of Hassetts

This house is owned by the Hassett family and they still live in this stately home. Over the years the family has allowed paranormal experts into the house to study the events that take place regularly. The house became well known as it had been featured in the the TV show, "Haunted Homes”.  Pictures fall off the walls inside the house, doors slam and voices can be heard in the small spaces and chimneys. The family dogs constantly stare at thin air and refuse to enter the cellar, which is said to be particularly haunted as there have been accounts of people emerging from the cellar with scratches that they did not have when they entered.  The owner Phil Hassett claims he was once woken by someone shaking him by the shoulders, he did not see their face in the dark but he was alone that night. The family must have nerves of steel.
