The Haunting of the Buckingham Arms
The pub dates back to the 1830s when it started life out as the Railway Tavern until it changed its name to the Buckingham Arms in 1848.
The ghost that haunts the pub can be heard opening the front gate in the early hours of the morning, then walking up the path and the banging loudly on the front door.
For a short time all hell breaks loose in the building, heavy footsteps are heard going up and down the stairs, doors are slammed shut and the sound of barrels being moved about are heard coming from the cellar.
With all this noise in the pub you would think that doors would be left opened and barrels would be strewn across the cellar’s floor.
But this is not the case, after the commotion is over there’s no evidence of anything ever being touched!

FEATURED HAUNTED HOTEL: The Arnos Manor Hotel
Along the Bath Road in Bristol you’ll find the Arnos Manor Hotel.
The hotel was first built as a private home for the business merchant William Reeve in 1760.
It was once a girl’s school which was run by nuns and it’s the ghost of one of these nuns that is said to haunt the hotel today.
Local legend says that a nun had committed suicide because she fell pregnant.
To hide the scandal, the other nuns bricked up her body behind a wall at the hotel.
During the Second World War the hotel was bombed by the German Luftwaffe.
The workmen who were sent in to repair the bomb damage area of the hotel uncovered a female skeleton.
Apparently, to avoid delay, the workmen just buried the bones elsewhere within the building!
Since then, poltergeist activity has taken place throughout the hotel.
Terrified guests have also witnessed a ghostly brown figure within the hotel especially within Room 160.
Guests have heard a female voice calling their name and have felt a figure pinning them down whilst they’ve slept in Room 160.
