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 the Chichester Inn
The pub is said to be haunted by a ghostly Roman legionnaire who it’s believed once patrolled the nearby Roman wall.
Customers at the Chichester Inn have reported to have felt the Roman soldier brush past them.
Some spooked witnesses have even seen his ghostly apparition.
Apparently they only ever see the top half of his body.
This may be due to the fact that the ground level was at a different height during the Roman era!
Another ghost has also been witnessed at the Chichester Inn.
One day a former barmaid was cleaning a large mirror in the pub when she suddenly saw in its reflection an old lady standing in the doorway watching her.
The barmaid turned around to tell her that the pub wasn’t open yet but found that she’d completely disappeared into thin air!
Sudden temperature drops and doors mysteriously opening on their own accord have also been reported to have taken place on a regular basis within the pub.
