The Haunted Dolphin Tavern
Quay Street, Penzance TR18 4BD
Along Quay Street in Penzance is the historic Dolphin Tavern.
The granite inn dates back five centuries and with such a long history it’s no wonder some say it’s haunted…
An old sea captain nicknamed George is said to haunt the upstairs bedrooms and corridors.
Witnesses have described his ghostly apparition as wearing a tri-cornered hat and a rather splendid jacket.
Back in his time, poor George was said to have been hung for a petty crime.
Startled guests have witnessed the ghostly apparition of a Victorian lady materialise and walk across the main bar and disappear through the stone wall.
The final ghost to show himself at the Dolphin is of a young fair-haired man.
He’s known to appear in the landlord’s bedroom in the middle of the night either sitting on or standing by the bed.
Nobody knows who exactly he is!Click Here to Stay in the Dolphin Tavern
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.
