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!
High East Street
High East Street is said to be haunted by a ghost who likes to pinch the bottoms of passing women.
The ghost is believed to be the spirit of a local homeless man called Harry who sadly died from pneumonia during the winter of 1929.
Witnesses who’ve seen Harry’s apparition describe him as being a scruffy bearded cheeky looking man, in his late fifties dress in a long brown overcoat.
The Icen Way
On the corner of the Icen Way and High West Street witnesses have reported seeing an apparition of a woman.
They describe the woman as being young and in distress.
She stands under the Icen Way street sign, barefooted and leaning against the wall in a blue dress crying her eyes out.
Apparently, she looks down at the floor and if anybody tries to help her she just ignores them before disappearing into thin air!
Some people believe she may be the ghost of a former street girl.
All Saints Road
All Saints Road is said to be haunted by the ghost of a little boy.
Witnesses walking along the road have reported seeing a ghostly apparition of a little boy aged about five years old dressed in Victorian clothing consisting of a white shirt and mid-length trousers held up by braces.
The ghostly little boy is always seen in the same place and he’s been seen so many times by the local residents that they have now given him the name of Tommy!
