The Haunting of Blickling Hall

Anne Boleyn was born and brought up at Blickling Hall.

She was married to King Henry VIII and became Queen in 1533.

This wasn’t too fortunate for Anne, as Henry had her beheaded in 1536 for adultery, incest and treason!

Although Anne was executed at the Tower of London, locals at Blickling say that her ghost haunts the Hall to this very day.

To mark the anniversary of her death, it’s said that every 19th May at midnight, a black coach pulled by four headless horses and driven by a headless coachman pulls up on the driveway of Blickling Hall.

The ghost of the decapitated Anne dressed in white is said to be sitting in the coach.

Apparently, she then climbs out of the black carriage with her severed bloodied head in her hands!

She then proceeds to enter the hall gliding down the corridors and into rooms inspecting each and every one of them.
