Haunts Around The UK

Posted November 3, 2010 by BookingBuddy

Avebury Halloween may be over, but that doesn’t mean the spine-tingling chills have to stop. If the popularity of horror films is anything to go by, then it seems most people love a good scare. If you love to be frightened, why not get your shivers for real instead of sitting through an onscreen shock? Here are some ghastly, ghoulish spots where you can experience some real life chills and thrills.

 

The Red Lion, Avebury, Wiltshire

The standing stones of Avebury are shrouded in myth and mystery, so it’s no surprise that the Red Lion pub – inside the stone circle – lays claim to being the most haunted pub in the UK. Florrie is perhaps the pub’s most famous spectral resident. The story goes that she was killed by her husband after he caught her with her lover, and then dumped her body into a well. Other apparitions include ghostly children and strange orbs of light.

 

Glamis Castle, Angus

With over 600 years of history behind it, Glamis Castle has more than a couple of ghouls to its name. The Monster of Glamis Castle is name given to a deformed child said to be born to the family in the 19th century, whose rooms were sealed after his death. There’s also Earl Beardie, rumoured to have lost his soul to the devil in a game of cards, and the famous Grey Lady, Janet Douglas, burnt at the stake on false charges of witchcraft. The castle is also said to have a host of secret rooms and passages.

 

Tower of London, London

Imprisonment, torture, and royal deaths – it’s no wonder the Tower of London is said to be one of the most haunted spots in the UK. The Tower’s most well-known apparitions are the Princes in the Tower, rumoured to have been murdered by their uncle Richard III. You may also spot the spectre of Anne Boleyn walking around, with her head held under her arm. Other ghosts include Lady Jane Grey, Henry IV, the White Lady, as well as that of a huge bear.
