ACKERGILL TOWER CASTLE: A Haunted Castle You Can Actually Stay the Night In!
The main ghost witnessed at the Ackergill Tower Castle is that of Helen Gunn.
Witnesses describe her ghost as a Green Lady or as a lady with black hair in a long red ball gown!
Chichester Cathedral, Chichester
Spooked witnesses have reported seeing the ghostly apparition of a monk wandering around the grounds of the cathedral near to the Minster House.
He’s often seen in the daylight but for some reason witnesses never see his face!
Another ghostly apparition seen in the grounds of the cathedral is that of an elderly man.
Witnesses describe him as wearing a suit and using a walking stick to help him walk the exact route every day!
Chichester Inn, Chichester
The pub is said to be haunted by a ghostly Roman legionnaire who it’s believed once patrolled the nearby Roman wall.
Customers at the Chichester Inn have reported to have felt the Roman soldier brush past them.
Some spooked witnesses have even seen his ghostly apparition.
Apparently they only ever see the top half of his body.
This may be due to the fact that the ground level was at a different height during the Roman era!
Another ghost has also been witnessed at the Chichester Inn.
One day a former barmaid was cleaning a large mirror in the pub when she suddenly saw in its reflection an old lady standing in the doorway watching her.
The barmaid turned around to tell her that the pub wasn’t open yet but found that she’d completely disappeared into thin air!
Sudden temperature drops and doors mysteriously opening on their own accord have also been reported to have taken place on a regular basis within the pub.
Pallant House Gallery, Chichester
Paranormal activity has been reported to have taken place within the Pallant House.
For most of its history the house was used as a residency.
The downstairs room which used to be the kitchen is reported to be the most active place within the house.
Spooked visitors have reported smelling phantom cooking aromas in the former kitchen.
And some people have actually felt somebody invisible brush past them!
