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!
Scadbury Manor, Chislehurst
Local legends say that the spirits of former members of the Walsingham family wander the site of Scadbury Manor today.
With its long and ancient history the area is a mecca for local paranormal investigation groups.
Spooked witnesses have reported hearing the eerie sound of horse’s hooves on cobbles, phantom footsteps, strange hissing noises and the smell of burning.
There was once a cobbled pathway which led to the manor house which could explain why people hear the eerie sound of horse’s hooves on cobbles.
And in the 1970s there was a Victorian house on the site which was totally destroyed by fire.
Which could explain why some witnesses smell burning at the Scadbury Manor site!
The Bickley, Chislehurst
In the 1980s the local press published that one of the rooms at the Bickley was haunted by the ghost of a White Lady.
The haunted room discussed was in fact Room 2.
Spooked witnesses have reported feeling sudden temperature drops and seeing ghostly shadows within the pub.
Many people believe that the White Lady ghost may actually be one of the ghosts that’s also said to haunt the nearby Chislehurst Caves!
The Queens Head, Chislehurst
Spooked customers and members of staff alike have reported seeing drink glasses suddenly fly off the bar top as though somebody invisible had flung them!
Many believe the ghostly goings-on are caused by the ghost of a former regular who sadly committed suicide by drowning himself in the pond next to the pub.
