The Haunted Olde King’s Arms
41 High Street, Hemel Hempstead HP1 3AF
Along Hemel Hempstead’s High Street is an ancient ale house called the Olde King’s Arms.
The pub lives up to its name as it dates back to the early 1600s and is located in Hemel Hempstead’s Old Town area.
It’s also rumoured that the pub was a secret meeting place for Henry VIII and Anne Boleyn when they were courting.
In fact, the Olde King’s Arms is said to be haunted by King Henry VIII himself…
Terrified members of staff have reported seeing a ghostly apparition of a large man resembling Henry in one of the pub’s bedrooms sitting on the bed
FEATURED HAUNTED HOTEL: The Black Boy Inn, Caernarfon
To the rear of the Black Boy there was once a convent which probably accounts for the many sightings of a ghostly nun seen walking through the building.
Many guests have heard the sound of a phantom child crying in one of the inn’s bedrooms.
Apparently, if you ask whether the child is OK it stops crying!
Members of staff and punters alike have reported seeing a ghostly figure of a man sitting in the bar area of the pub just watching people.
And a senior member of staff was certain they saw a ghostly apparition of a woman in the bar area when they were working late one night.
