If you are committed to encountering the paranormal on a legitimate ghost tour you are going to want to make sure that you do absolutely everything in your power to make this a memorable trip and not just a midnight waste of time.
The popularity of professional ghost tour excursions in the United Kingdom has absolutely exploded, and there are all kinds of opportunities to visit some of the most haunted locations in the UK with others that are interested in experiencing the paranormal up close and personal just as you are.
And while these ghost tour organizations are likely going to have some tips, tricks, and pieces of inside information available happy to share with you so that you make the most of your excursions we’ve put together this quick guide to help you really hit the ground running.
Let’s dive right in!
Be sure to go on ghost hunting trips with sanctioned ghost tour organizations
The most important thing you can do when you are gearing up for an experience with the paranormal is to connect with a legitimate and sanctioned ghost tour organization.
Sure, it’s always possible – though not always legal – to gather a team of friends or even complete and total strangers and visit some of the most haunted locations throughout the United Kingdom all on your own.
But then you run the risk of trespassing, run the risk of spoiling your trip, and won’t be able to take advantage of all the significant benefits and information that professional or at least sanctioned ghost tour organizations can provide.
Do your best to research your haunted location ahead of time for inside information
Secondly, you’ll want to be sure that you do everything in your power to research the haunted location you are going to be visiting to get as much inside information about the paranormal activity as possible.
Look for details that include information about:
- Where the most frequent paranormal activity occurs
- When the most frequent paranormal activity of occurs and
- How to best capture evidence of this paranormal activity
The Internet is going to be your best friend when conducting this information and you’ll be able to immediately improve your odds of contacting the other side – and coming away with evidence – if you spend an hour or two digging up some basic dirt before your ghost tour.
Always (ALWAYS) – double check any recording equipment you’re bringing before you set out on a ghost tour
You’ll obviously want to bring along (the very least) a digital camera that is capable of producing high quality results in low light situations, but you may be bringing other pieces of recording equipment as well.
Regardless of the kind or amount of equipment that you are going to bring on your ghost tour you’ll want to double check – and probably even triple check – all of your equipment to make sure that it’s ready for “show time”.
It’s not a bad idea to bring back up pieces of equipment, either. You never know what kind of impact paranormal activity can have on different recording devices and you’ll want to have as many opportunities as possible to capture the other side when you have a chance to do so.
