The Haunted George Hotel
39 High Street, Buckden PE19 5XA
The George Hotel in Buckden dates back to the 17th century.
Today, the modern hotel’s rooms are cleverly named after famous Georges such as George Best, George Orwell and George Eliot.
But in the old days when the rooms were more conventionally numbered, the rooms in the old part of the George had a ghostly reputation…
Paranormal activity was reported by both members of staff and guests alike to take place in rooms 100, 104, 105 and 112.
Guests sleeping in the rooms would often be woken up in the middle of the night by something unseen lifting up their bedcover and pinching their legs!
The ghostly apparition of a man wearing a tricorn hat and a black coat has been seen by terrified witnesses gliding along the first floor corridor.
Locked doors in the hotel have been known to mysteriously unlock themselves on their own accord and heavy phantom footsteps have also been heard walking around the building.
The apparition of a woman has been seen to suddenly manifest on the hotel’s main staircase by stunned witnesses.
In the 1990s a shocked guest was woken by her young daughter who was speaking in a disturbing deep male voice…
It’s said that the lady and her daughter left the hotel in a hurry the very next morning!
