AMBERLY CASTLE: A Haunted Castle You Can Actually Stay the Night In!
The Grade I listed 12th century Amberley Castle Hotel is located in the picturesque village of Amberley.
Today, the castle has been transferred into an amazing luxury hotel.
It's said to be haunted by the ghost of a young girl called Emily who committed suicide at the castle.
Her ghostly apparition has been seen by terrified witnesses in and around the Herstmonceux Room!
The Haunting of the Bincombe Tunnel
You’ll find the Bincombe Tunnel cutting through a hillside just to the north of the Dorset town of Weymouth.
The deep railway tunnel is on the main line from Weymouth to Dorchester.
It’s a Victorian built tunnel dating back to the late 1850’s.
Since the 1990’s it’s gained the reputation for being haunted.
Many train drivers have reported seeing and sometimes hitting the ghostly apparition of a man walking along the track within the tunnel.
Many people believe that the ghostly man is the spirit of a commuter who was tragically hit by a train as he walked through the tunnel in 1987 when he thought he’d missed the last train home and decided to take a short cut along the tracks!
