The Hauntings at the Kings Arms
One of the oldest buildings in Swaffham with a few ghostly tales to tell is the Kings Arms pub.
This old coaching inn dates back to 1608.
It was once used as a brothel where all sorts of horrendous crimes took place including murder.
It’s now said that the pub is haunted by the ghosts of former working girls and a nasty male spirit!
Phantom footsteps running along the pub’s hallways and doors slamming on their own accord are often heard by terrified witnesses within the building.
Ghostly indentations on the beds, as though an invisible person is sitting there, have been seen on many occasions in the guest’s bedrooms.
Members of staff and guests alike have been scared witless after seeing the ghostly apparition of a man sat next to the fireplace watching them.
Some say he’s the ghost of a former owner of the pub!
Spooked members of staff are often reporting that something unknown has pushed or prodded them as they go about their daily work.
And terrified witnesses have seen a ghostly apparition of a lady standing in the ballroom.
Some say she’s the ghost of a lady who sadly committed suicide by hanging herself!
