Paranormal Friends accept no responsibility for any clothing/equipment/damages to vehicles/ parking fines and clamping of vehicles. All of your personal belongings and effects are your own responsibility. Ignoring or going against safety advice may result in injury or death! Any person who does so may be asked to leave.

- Participants are advised at all times that they must remain with team leaders and treat all locations under investigation and their contents with respect and care. Some locations only permit investigation of certain parts for a variety of reasons. You must only investigate in authorised areas and not wander off by yourself.
- Many locations may not be suitable for people with disabilities as they may not have disabled access. We value all of our guests and aim to make as many of our investigations as accessible as possible. However, due to physical restrictions at some locations it may not be possible to provide disabled access. If you require any advice please contact us.
- Smoking is only permitted in designated areas. In some instances smoking may not be permitted according to the location in question. No candles or matches are to be brought onto location.
- Unless stated there are no sleeping areas at any location, we suggest that you use local hotels/ B&B’s if you are travelling any distance as TIREDNESS CAN KILL.
- You will be given the opportunity to use some of our modern and traditional investigation equipment. We ask that you do so with extreme care, as misuse / abuse of such will render you liable for any loss or damage incurred.
- No refunds or transfers are available under any circumstances. However, if we can re-sell tickets purchased we will be pleased to do so subject to a 25% handling charge.
- Whilst we take all our investigations seriously and are sincere in what we do, we have to state that they should be considered as for entertainment purposes only as there is no definitive proof as to the existence, or for that matter, the non-existence of any form of paranormal activity.
Paranormal Friends do not fake paranormal activity. Everything that happens is real, and can be quite frightening for some.
Investigations are held at reputedly/potentially haunted locations, unfortunately there is no way of guaranteeing that paranormal activity will be witnessed or experienced. While we will use our experience to lead the investigations we also need all participants to join in as much as possible as it is believed by many that Spirit “feeds” off the energy that is available to them. Refunds will not be given should no paranormal activity be witnessed or take place.
