The Leopard Hotel, in Stoke-on-Trent, Staffordshire, is renowned as one of Britain's most astonishing paranormal venues. Built as an 18th Century coaching inn, the hotel was extended during the Victorian era to accommodate 55-bedrooms and became known as the 'Savoy of the North'. In 1952 the doors of the hotel were finally closed and its compact rooms became a time capsule to a bygone age. Ten years ago, the hotel re-opened – but this time to a new generation of historians, photographers and followers of the paranormal.
Today magician and illusionist Chris Stokes takes guests on an unforgettable tour of the Leopard's creepy cellars and long-forgotten hotel rooms, regaling them with stories of supernatural encounters, grisly murders – and the curse of local witch Molly Leigh. Definitely not for the faint-hearted! Public tours run throughout the year based on demand and private tours are also available for guest numbers between 18 and 22.
