LUMLEY CASTLE: A Haunted Castle You Can Actually Stay the Night In!
The ghost of Lady Lily Lumley is said to haunt the castle.
Phantom children are often heard playing on the top floor.
And a ghostly apparition of a man has been seen sitting at the bar.
It’s said that a ghost known as Black Jack often plays pranks on startled guests!
Back in 1785 it was reported that a ghostly apparition of a lady in blue satin was witnessed by two young lads stamping three times on a blue slab on the floor near the Hall’s great staircase before she vanishing through a nearby doorway.
At a later date new owners of the hall were renovating the building when they came across an underground vault concealed by the blue slab the ghostly apparition had stamped on.
What they discovered disturbed them…
The underground vault contained a couple of skeletons guarding a large stash of gold coins.
One of the skeletons wore a gold bracelet whilst the other had gold spurs near its feet.
There was also a goblet containing what some believed was dried blood.
But more shockingly…
In a recess in the vault’s wall a collection of children skulls and bones were discovered!

FEATURED HAUNTED HOTEL: Amberley Castle
The Grade I listed 12th century Amberley Castle Hotel is located in the picturesque village of Amberley.
The castle started life out as a timber-framed hunting lodge in 1103.
But it upgraded to a fortified manor house in 1377 by the bishop of Chichester.
After the Reformation the castle still belonged to the church but was leased out to the crown.
During the English Civil War part of the castle was destroyed by Parliamentarian forces and it fell into ruin.
The Duke of Norfolk leased Amberley Castle in 1893 and started to renovate it.
Today the castle has been transferred into an amazing luxury hotel.
The castle is 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!
