The New Inn – Meal, Psychic Workshop & Paranormal Investigation

January 19 @ 7:30 am - January 20 @ 1:00 am

| £39.00

Another new venue for JP Paranormal to investigate! Along with those who are brave enough for a venue steeped in history and copious amounts of paranormal activity!


The New Inn, is a timber framed building used as a public house, hotel and restaurant. It is the most complete surviving example of a medieval courtyard inn with galleries in Britain, and is a Grade I listed building. The announcement of Lady Jane Grey’s succession to the British throne was made from the Inn gallery in 1553.

The Inn was built in 1450 by John Twyning, a monk, as a hostelry for the former Benedictine Abbey of St Peter. It is on the site of an earlier inn. After the dissolution of St Peter’s the inn passed to the Dean and Chapter of Gloucester Cathedral and was leased to various inn holders until it was sold in 1858. Stories that the inn was built to provide lodgings for pilgrims to the tomb of King Edward II were first recorded in the eighteenth century and may be incorrect.

In 1553, King Edward VI died and Lady Jane Grey was proclaimed Queen from the first floor gallery by the Abbott of Gloucester.

It is thought that William Shakespeare may have performed at the Inn with his company The Lord Chamberlain’s Men as it is known that the company did visit and perform in the city.


A series of unexplained events have occurred at The New Inn, including the sound of ghostly footsteps and rattling doors. Paranormal activity was eventually captured on CCTV when a pint glass moved across a table and dropped on to the floor.

The ghost of a young girl has been reported as being seen and spoken to by the daughter of the pubs managers and members of staff have reported hearing phantom footsteps from the cellar. A barman has claimed to have experienced a cold spot in the bar after closing time, he said the drop in temperature chilled him to the bone. On another occasion the pub managers’ pet has even been spooked, the dog was eating his food in his bowl and the bowl just turned itself over. The dog ran over to the other side of the room and just stared at his bowl and wouldn’t go near it for the rest of the night.

Jenny visited The New Inn herself and was amazed by the history and overall atmosphere of this impressive building. It was then that she arranged a JP Paranormal Investigation here, in the heart of Gloucester.
