The Haunted Hippodrome

In the 1980s, the cleaners at Colchester’s old Hippodrome would always say hello to George when they entered the build.

So who is George?

George was a former employee who worked at the Hippodrome but tragically fell to his death years previously.

One of the cleaners would see his apparition regularly whilst others would only just hear his ghostly voice talking to them!

FEATURED HAUNTED HOTEL: The Arnos Manor Hotel

Along the Bath Road in Bristol you’ll find the Arnos Manor Hotel.

The hotel was first built as a private home for the business merchant William Reeve in 1760.

It was once a girl’s school which was run by nuns and it’s the ghost of one of these nuns that is said to haunt the hotel today.

Local legend says that a nun had committed suicide because she fell pregnant.

To hide the scandal, the other nuns bricked up her body behind a wall at the hotel.

During the Second World War the hotel was bombed by the German Luftwaffe.

The workmen who were sent in to repair the bomb damage area of the hotel uncovered a female skeleton.

Apparently, to avoid delay, the workmen just buried the bones elsewhere within the building!

Since then, poltergeist activity has taken place throughout the hotel.

Terrified guests have also witnessed a ghostly brown figure within the hotel especially within Room 160.

Guests have heard a female voice calling their name and have felt a figure pinning them down whilst they’ve slept in Room 160.
