Harrogate's reputation as a quaint English spa town has been established since the early 1800s. However, one might be surprised to discover that the town and villages around it hide many terrifying tales. 


It took paranormalist Paul Forster over a year to collate this collection of real-life encounters with spirits, poltergeists and ghosts. Nothing could prepare him for what he uncovered as he explored the darker, mysterious side of this beautiful tourist destination. 


Drawing on historical and contemporary sources, Haunted Harrogate's chilling compendium of ghost stories includes accounts never before seen in print.


From poltergeists in Harrogate's oldest drinking establishment to apparitions of monks in Knaresborough, this assortment of terrifying tales is bound to show this picturesque part of North Yorkshire in a new light.
