It’s high time I plugged my ongoing countdown of those places I believe may be the most haunted places in Britain. It’s only a bit of fun, of course, and I’m already thinking, ‘Perhaps I should have put in A, B or C rather than X, Y or Z’ but I’ve enjoyed compiling it.
Now I’ve reached number 4 – surely Scotland’s most famously haunted castle? You can read the entry here:
Counting down the Top 10 so far: No. 10 is one of England’s best-known haunted (former) inns (
); No. 9 is an absolutely gorgeous Tudor mansion in the West Country(
); No. 8 was once celebrated as England’s most haunted house but is now closed to the public (
); No. 7 is arguably Britain’s most haunted hotel (
); No. 6 is another creepy old mansion, whose ‘ghosted’ reputation has grown enormously in the past decade (
); and No. 5 ditto but whose history of hauntings stretches back many years and features an almost bewildering variety of alleged phantoms.
Out of those six entries, incidentally, I’ve just realised only four counties are represented – there are two locations in Dorset and two in Gloucestershire. No bias intended, that’s just the way it fell.
