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 Royal Marines Museum, Southsea
The first ghost said to haunt the Royal Marines Museum is that of a little girl who was said to have been ran over and tragically killed by a horse-drawn carriage when she ran out in front of it.
Her ghostly apparition is mainly seen around the main steps to the museum’s entrance.
Spooked members of staff have also reported that they’ve smelt paper burning as well as feeling an oppressive atmosphere in the attic of the building.
Local legend says that during the 19th century an officer called Colonel Wolf burnt love letters in the attic.
And then shot himself in the head with his service revolver after a love affair came to an abrupt end.
His heartbroken ghost is now said to haunt the attic!
The Explosion Museum of Naval Firepower, Gosport
Spooked members of staff and visitors alike have reported eerie things happening at the museum.

Former Royal Naval personnel, security guards and paranormal investigators have all reported seeing ghostly apparition within the former Royal Naval Armaments Depot.
The Museum of Army Flying, Middle Wallop
Spooked witnesses have reported seeing two ghosts at the museum.
The apparition of a former member of the Women’s Auxiliary Air Force has been seen riding her bike around the museum.
And a ghost of a little boy has been seen playing in one of the museum’s helicopter exhibits!
