The New Inn, Gloucester
Off Northgate Street in the centre of the county town of Gloucester you’ll find the New Inn.
This splendid Grade I listed medieval courtyard inn dates back to 1455.
It was built as a hostelry for pilgrims by John Twyning who was a monk from the Benedictine Abbey of St Peter.
In 1553, Lady Jane Grey was a guest at the inn when the announcement of her succession to the British throne was made from the Inn gallery.
The New Inn became infamous in 2010 when the CCTV system recorded a pint of beer lift off a table and fall onto the floor on its own accord.
This paranormal event happened during a pub quiz night with many startled witnesses!
Apparently, paranormal activity started to occur at the inn when new managers arrived…
Their young daughter had seen and spoken with a spirit of a young girl.
Phantom footsteps, rattling doors, TVs turning off on their own accord and severe temperature drops are just some of the paranormal activities to be reported by both members of staff and guests alike since the new managers arrived.
Before these events, the building did have a reputation with the locals for being haunted by the ghosts of children who once died in a tragic fire at the site!Click Here to Stay at the New Inn
The Ragged Cot, Minchinhampton
The historic Ragged Cot Inn situated on the Cirencester Road just outside the ancient market town of Minchinhampton dates back to the 17th century when it was first a coaching inn.
There have been a couple of ghosts reported at the Ragged Cot Inn.
In 1760, an ex-landlord of the Ragged Cot Inn called Bill Clavers was hung for the murder of his wife and child.
Some believe that it’s this trio which haunts the Ragged Cot Inn today!
The Tudor House Hotel, Tewkesbury
The historic Tudor House Hotel in Tewkesbury dates back to the 16th century.
There’s a ghost at the Tudor House Hotel nicknamed the Grey Lady, but some guests have also reported seeing a ghostly apparition of a lady in white…
Some say it’s the same ghost and others say its two separate entities!
If you decide to stay the night at the Tudor House Hotel you may be woken in the middle of the night by the sound of drums…
Sorry, but you’ve just been woken by the ghost of the small drummer boy!
Are you a dog lover?
Then keep an eye on the top of the main staircase in the hotel…
You just might see the ghostly apparition of the phantom black Labrador!
