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 George Inn
You’ll find the 19th century George Inn situated along Silsoe’s High Street.
It’s said to be haunted by Lady Elizabeth Grey.
Local legend states that Lady Elizabeth Grey tragically died in a coaching accident near to the George when her coach crashed into a nearby lake and she drowned.
It’s said that she fell in love with a coachman at the inn and they used the George as a hide out.
They were fleeing her disapproving father when the fatal accident happened.
In 1959 the landlady of the George was so fed up with all the paranormal activity happening at the inn that she called in an exorcist.
Apparently the exorcism had no effect whatsoever…
The haunting continue soon afterwards with the doors at the property opening and slamming shut on their own accord in the early hours of the morning!
In 1960, a workman at the George saw a ghostly figure of a young woman dressed in grey and wearing an impressive hat walk pass him.
Was this phantom female the ghost of Lady Elizabeth Grey?
On another occasion a very solid looking apparition of a man was seen by a terrified witness who reported that the man just disappeared into thin air!
Other witnesses have also reported hearing phantom footsteps walking around the premises.
