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 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.
