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 Haunting of the Rising Sun
You’ll find the Rising Sun pub situated along Bridge Street in the Soke area of the city.
During the English Civil War Winchester was under control of the Royalist.
The cellar of the Rising Sun was used as a prison for capture Parliamentarian soldiers.
Today, the cellar is reputed to be haunted with poltergeist activity having been reported to have taken place down there.
Beer barrels and objects have mysteriously been moved and blood stains have suddenly appeared on the walls.
A couple of years ago, money would disappear on a regular basis out of the pub’s locked safe and then reappear in another area of the pub.
The safe was very well protected, it had an independent alarm, a time switch and a motion detector!
Room 3 of the Rising Sun is said to have an unearthly presence that makes for a disturbed sleep for anyone who’s staying the night in it.
