About the Event


Join Barri Ghai at the Rifles Museum in Salisbury for a professional Ghost Hunt. Spend the evening with him and members of The Ghostfinder Paranormal Society investigating this unique and historic location. 

The Rifles Museum in Salisbury has a long history of paranormal activity, with reports of books flying from shelves, heavy footsteps coming rom empty rooms and even the apparition of a woman who is seen on a regular basis by staff. Your ghost hunt at The Rifles Museum will give you an opportunity to experience genuine paranormal activity and may leave you running for the door. Staff have seen the apparition of a Cavalier and also a 'grey lady' within the building and there have been numerous reports of bright light anomalies and significant temperature drops in sealed rooms by other paranormal groups carrying out investigations here. During the event you are very likely to encounter a sinister male presence as many have done so during past events.

This paranormal event will begin at 8:30pm and end at 1:30am. There will be 3 small teams investigating throughout the night and lead investigators from The Ghostfinder Paranormal Society will be carrying out experiments and different activities in different locations using the latest paranormal investigation equipment. 

A maximum of 30 guests will be allowed to attend this event so please book early to avoid disappointment. Barri will work with everyone throughout the evening.


There will be free hot and cold drinks available in the kitchenette area.

About The Rifles Wardrobe Museum

Although its present appearance owes much to 19th century alterations, the origins of The Wardrobe, 58 The Close lie in the 13th century and the overall shape of a central hall (originally open to the roof) with two service wings still remains. 

At first the residence of one of the canons who served the Salisbury Cathedral it later passed into the hands of the Bishop of Salisbury. It is probable that the building was used as a storehouse for church treasures and relics, as well as an administrative base for the Bishops household which led to its name of The Wardrobe, a title first recorded in 1543.

After use in the Second World War as a hostel of the Auxiliary Territorial Service (ATS) it was rented in 1945 by the Diocesan Training College for Schoolmistresses to provide accommodation for 25 students and 2 members of staff. This use continued until 1969. 

The building then remained empty for some years, with its future in doubt but during the 1970s negotiations took place for the building to become a museum for The Rifles (Berkshire and Wiltshire) Museum and finally in the summer of 1981 the Museum was officially opened by HRH Prince Philip, Colonel-in-Chief of the Duke of Edinburgh’s Royal Regiment, on 29 July 1982.

In the 18th century members of the Coles family divided the upper and lower halls, forming on the ground floor an entrance hall, staircase hall and dining room, the arrangement which survives today. A central entrance replaced the large window on the courtyard side of the original lower hall. The Rifles Museum is now used by visitors from all over the country.
