The Duke’s Head Hotel
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…
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!
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!
The Globe Hotel
In the corner of Tuesday Market Place in King’s Lynn you’ll find the historic Globe Hotel which is reputed to be haunted.
On some occasions, guests staying at the Georgian hotel have remarked on the chilly atmosphere…
But, it’s nothing to do with the hotel being draughty!
You see, many say that the cold spots are created by the ghost of a murder victim who was killed in the hotel’s stables.
Today, the stables have now been incorporated within the hotel.
The Tudor Rose Hotel
Just off Tuesday Market Place in St Nicholas Street you’ll find the Tudor Rose Hotel…
The timber-framed hotel dates back to the 1500s when it started life out as a medieval merchant’s house.
The hotel is said to be haunted by quite a few ghosts!
Room 7, the back bar and the restaurant are all known for their paranormal activity.
Terrified witnesses have seen the ghostly apparition of a grey lady in the hotel’s restaurant.
It’s said that she’s the ghost of a bride who was shockingly stabbed to death in the hotel by her newly wedded husband.
Phantom footsteps are also heard throughout the hotel on quiet nights!
