The Haunted Cross Keys Hotel
32 High Street, Saffron Walden CB10 1AX
The 15th century timber-framed Cross Keys Hotel on the corner of King Street and High Street in Saffron Walden is said to be haunted by a Cromwellian soldier.
Members of staff and visitors alike have heard unexplained phantom footsteps walking up and down the corridors of the hotel.
It’s been reported that on every Christmas Eve the soldier’s ghostly apparition is seen running down the dead end passageway of the hotel only to disappear into thin air when he reaches the end!
The Cromwellian soldier is not the only ghost to haunt the hotel…
A ghostly woman who’s rumoured to be the mistress of Oliver Cromwell is said to haunt one of the upstairs bedrooms of the Cross Keys too.Click Here to Stay in the Cross Keys Hotel
