The Hauntings at the Queen’s Head
You’ll find the Queen’s Head pub along Woburn Street in the centre of the town.
The 18th century pub has a reputation for being haunted…
Ghostly shadows have been seen in the Lounge Bar of the pub.
And on one occasion a barmaid had her legs slapped by something unseen whilst working behind the bar!
Both the upstairs and downstairs corridors are said to have a presence…
Suddenly temperature drops, high and variable EMF readings and phantom footsteps have all been reported to take place along the corridors.
Some people believe it’s the spirit of a former landlord who creates the paranormal activity!
The landlord’s son took a snap using his smart phone of the corner of bar area where his pet dog tends to like to stare and bark at…
He was surprised to discover that he’d captured an image of a 17th century gentleman!
Although the pub’s kitchen has seen some poltergeist activity the landlord feels that the ghosts at the Queen’s Head are mainly friendly.

FEATURED HAUNTED HOTEL: The Arnos Manor Hotel
Along the Bath Road in Bristol you’ll find the Arnos Manor Hotel.
The hotel was first built as a private home for the business merchant William Reeve in 1760.
It was once a girl’s school which was run by nuns and it’s the ghost of one of these nuns that is said to haunt the hotel today.
Local legend says that a nun had committed suicide because she fell pregnant.
To hide the scandal, the other nuns bricked up her body behind a wall at the hotel.
During the Second World War the hotel was bombed by the German Luftwaffe.
The workmen who were sent in to repair the bomb damage area of the hotel uncovered a female skeleton.
Apparently, to avoid delay, the workmen just buried the bones elsewhere within the building!
Since then, poltergeist activity has taken place throughout the hotel.
Terrified guests have also witnessed a ghostly brown figure within the hotel especially within Room 160.
Guests have heard a female voice calling their name and have felt a figure pinning them down whilst they’ve slept in Room 160.
