History of The Royal Victoria and Bull Hotel
The Royal Victoria and Bull Hotel in Dartford, Kent is Dartford's oldest inn built in the 14th century and was probably owned by Dartford's Priory. The 'Bull' in the name refers not to the animal, but to 'bulla' – a seal, or a papal edict secured by a seal. The Inn's early name was the 'Holy Bull' – the holy seal or holy edict.

The Inn was rebuilt in 1703 with a gallery overlooking the yard, into which stagecoaches and carriages would enter through an entrance twice as wide as it is today.

The open yard was glazed over by the landlord in 1826 to provide a sheltered corn exchange. Over 100 years ago (1906), the workmen digging in front of the Royal Victoria and Bull Hotel at Dartford High Street in order to lay paving discovered the remains of the old town of Dartford. Unfortunately, most of the artefacts were damaged, the items that survived are now in Dartford Museum.

Famous guests have included, Cornish engineer Richard Trevithick who lived and died here. Her Majesty Queen Victoria stayed here in 1836, which then permitted the Hotel to use the Royal prefix.

A ghostly child (8 years old who died of turberculosis in the hotel) called Winifred makes her presence known by smashing glasses! Other reported sightings are that of a cigar smoking Cavalier and a phantom dog that likes to warm guests' feet. A phantom butterfly has also been seen in the hotel. Staff and hotel guests have also reporting hearing a phantom bell when ascending the front staircase to the first floor.

Location of Venue

What Happens at the Event

Our events are always 100% investigation and vigil events, we won't waste time by taking you on a history tour of the venue.

We will not usually talk about the history of the building unless people ask us to do so.
We don't hold workshops or briefing on equipment usage. Any equipment that you will be using throughout the event will be explained at the start of each session by our team leaders.

For the first few hours (usually 1 hour per session) you will be in a group and you will spend time with our Mediums doing séances, where they will try to get the active spirit to move you in some way (this is not designed to scare you) and with our paranormal investigators doing experiments, table tilting, glass divination, Ouija boards, EVP (Electronic Voice Phenomena a.k.a. ghost voice) experiments and other equipment experiments using the latest ghost hunting equipment.

After these controlled sessions you will have the opportunity to venture off on your own or in small groups to explore the venue or to hold lone vigils or re-visiting an activity that you enjoyed in our controlled sessions. In this part of the night you can use our ghost hunting equipment to do your own ghost hunt. You may take photos/videos with your own cameras throughout our ghost hunts. You may also use any of your own ghost hunting equipment during our controlled sessions.
