The Haunted Bull Hotel
Westgate, Peterborough PE1 1RB
You’ll find the 17th century Grade II listed Bull Hotel along Westgate in the middle of Peterborough…
Just opposite the Queensgate Shopping Centre to be precise!
The hotel has a few ghostly tales to tell…
In the 1800s, a lady travelling with her dog stopped off at the hotel.
Unfortunately, whilst their coach and horses manoeuvred in the yard the poor dog got run over and killed.
Since that time, the Bull has been extended and the yard is now one of the hotel’s bedrooms.
Today, the room is said to be haunted by the ghost of the dog…
Hotel maids have been surprised to discover muddy paw prints on the clean bed sheets even when no guests have been staying in the room!
It seems that the ghostly dog isn’t the only spirit to roam the hotel…
Both members of staff and guests alike have reported hearing phantom footsteps and the eerie sound of somebody jingling keys in the bar area.
Cold spots and suddenly temperature drops have also been noticed!
FEATURED HAUNTED HOTEL: The Black Boy Inn, Caernarfon
To the rear of the Black Boy there was once a convent which probably accounts for the many sightings of a ghostly nun seen walking through the building.
Many guests have heard the sound of a phantom child crying in one of the inn’s bedrooms.
Apparently, if you ask whether the child is OK it stops crying!
Members of staff and punters alike have reported seeing a ghostly figure of a man sitting in the bar area of the pub just watching people.
And a senior member of staff was certain they saw a ghostly apparition of a woman in the bar area when they were working late one night.
