I’m Fiona Broome. Welcome to my how-to guide for ghost hunting enthusiasts.
For over 30 years, I’ve researched ghostly sites with rich, historical connections. My focus is on the personal experience at those sites, rather than proving whether the location is actually haunted by ghostly spirits.
This site is designed to help you find and explore eerie sites similar to those seen on Ghost Adventures, Ghost Hunters, Ghost Nation, Most Haunted (UK), Portals to Hell, and so on.
However… if you’re looking for fiction or hype, this website may disappoint you.
On the “true believer v. skeptic” scale, I lean more towards skepticism. Oh, I believe in ghostly and spiritual phenomena, but I also believe that 80% of “haunted” sites can be explained with science, especially infrasound. As a researcher, those locations don’t interest me.
Instead, I’m looking for a unique sense of connection with events of the past, and the people who lived in those eras. Whether that’s due to a unique ambience, a rich physical environment, ghostly residual energy, or actual “paranormal” activity, my focus is on the personal experience.
I want it to be authentic.
I also want it to be something others can encounter when they visit that same site.
Yes, I sometimes use ghost hunting equipment to confirm that something unexplained is happening.
(Ghost hunting equipment can also be used to debunk a supposedly haunted site. For example, you can use dowsing rods to trace the path of underground streams and water pipes that might contribute to infrasound. Likewise, EMF detectors can help you find metal with magnetic properties that can disorient sensitive researchers.)
Most, this website is for people like me who value moments of feeling connected with rich, historical events, and with related personalities from the past.
