  • This unique ticket gets you access to both the Main Building, as well as the Experiments Wing and the Cemetery, plus a FREE bottle of water
Description

Take a once-in-a-lifetime (literally) opportunity to visit the Sevenoaks Asylum and Cemetery. This long-abandoned lunatic asylum once boasted the UK's highest rate of patient and personnel suicides. Known for extreme and experimental treatments, as well as a series of floods, fires and lightning strikes, the building is in serious disrepair. Explore the whole, horrible place alone, by torch and moonlight.

The last facility in the UK to offer discretionary executions, Sevenoaks was known as one of the most gruesome facilities in the UK. No former resident of Sevenoaks ever successfully reintegrated into society and many suffered under longtime Director Julius P. Northbridge and Chief Medical Officer Angus "Hand of Death" McTaggart.

Sevenoaks Asylum and Cemetery has been abandoned ever since it closed in 1923. Under investigation for over a decade, the Department for Alleviation of Medical Neuroses and Extreme Disorders finally determined that the methods employed here were "too extreme, and in some cases grotesquely horrifying", even by their own notoriously inclusive policies.

Persistent floods and fires, a series of personnel scandals, the furor around the so-called 'Butcher of Block Street', and the controversial third expansion of the Cemetery, all contributed to its demise.

A programme to train some patients as children's birthday party clowns to aid reintegration ultimately failed, due to a couple of high-profile 'incidents'. In the end, many former residents simply disappeared, and it's rumored some still live in the surrounding woods.

NOTE

  • While onsite, watch out for broken glass, discarded needles, medicine bottles, soiled sheets, dental pliers, lobotomy drills, and hazardous waste.

  • Not all graves in the cemetery are marked, and due to recent seismic activity, some 'shifting of contents' has occurred. Please be aware of potential spillover.

  • As the site is now abandoned, any noises you hear are probably just your imagination.

Insider tip

Sevenoaks has been closed to visitors since a tour bus bound for the premises departed from Croydon Station in 2007 and disappeared. All 33 customers, the guide, and the bus driver were never heard from again. A detailed investigation closed with inconclusive results and the mystery is still unsolved.
