The most haunted places in England
The idea of going somewhere haunted might not be for everyone, but there are definitely those of us who are on the hunt for some scares! If you are one of these people, then you might want to think about taking a look at where in England is the most haunted.
To help inspire you to take a spooky break, here are some of the most haunted places in England, all ready and waiting for you to take a visit to (if you dare that is!)
Blickling Hall in Norwich
There are plenty of haunted houses in England, although if you are looking for the best then you might want to head to Blickling Hall in Norwich. Once voted to be the most haunted house in Britain, the Hall as it stands today has been built on the ruins of a medieval manor hours; which, was the home to the Boleyn family.
The birthplace of Anne Boleyn, one of the wives of Henry VIII who was beheaded for failing to provide a son to the king, it is not that surprising that this particular house has become a site for ghostly goings on. Although, when you learn that the ghostly figure of a lady has been spotted with books that feature information on the late Anne Boleyn, then maybe you will see why it is just so spooky.
Pluckley Village in Kent
You might wonder just how an entire village can be haunted; but in the case of Pluckley Village this is definitely the case. A seemingly quiet and quaint part of the county, Pluckley has been used as a filming location for TV, but is also known to be one of the most haunted places in the area.
It is thought that there are around 12-16 ghosts that have been reported throughout the village on a regular basis, which means that if you are on a ghost hunt, then this is definitely one place to head!
Pendle Hill in Lancashire
There is always something truly fascinating about witchcraft and particular how it was viewed back in the 17th century. Pendle Hill is one of the areas in the UK which is known to have particular links to the world of witchcraft.
12 women were accused of witchcraft and during 1612 they will put on trial at Lancaster Castle, accused of murder. 10 of these women were found to be guilty and then sentenced to death. It is thought that those witches now roam the area, their restless spirits haunting the local village of Newchurch and everyone who lives and visits there.
Ancient Ram Inn in Gloucestershire
It is no secret that Stonehenge is one of the most spiritual and fascinating places in the UK. What you might not realise is that this particular old building is actually on top of two ancient Ley Lines which are thought to take energy directly from Stonehenge. Needless to say, there has been plenty of ghostly goings on at this particular spot.
Freezing temperatures, creaks and groans and even a few sightings of ghost too! It is only open a few days to the public and you can take a tour, but it is not a good idea for anyone who is young or weak-willed!
As you can see, England is not short on spooky places to spend some time. So, why not learn more about our amazing history and some of the ghost stories from across the years?
