The Haunted Duke’s Head Hotel

5-6 Tuesday Market Place, King’s Lynn PE30 1JS

The Grade II listed Duke’s Head Hotel dates back to 1683 but it actually stands on the site of an ancient inn called the Gryffin.

The hotel is said to be haunted by quite a few ghosts…

In 1531, a maid murdered her mistress by poisoning her.

For her crimes, she was boiled to death in a large pot in front of a baying crowd in the middle of Tuesday Market Place!

Terrified witnesses have reported seeing the ghostly apparition of a weeping lady in 16th century dress throughout the hotel.

It’s believed that she’s the ghost of the executed maid!

There’s another ghostly female figure which is often seen wandering around the hotel’s corridors and on the staircase…

She’s known as the Red Lady and is believed to be the ghost of a woman who committed suicide over her two lovers.

Keeping to the suicide theme…

A man at the hotel was brought to Room 18 after he tried to kill himself.

For a short time afterwards, it was said that terrified hotel’s guests would flee the room due to the ghostly moans believed to have been caused by the spirit of the suicidal man!
