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!

Greyfriars Priory, Dunwich

The ruins of the Greyfriars Priory are rumoured to be haunted…

The Grade II* listed ruins of the Franciscan Greyfriars Priory are said to be haunted by ghostly monks.

Their ghostly apparitions are often seen wandering around the remains of the ancient priory by terrified witnesses.

In 1926, a massive black phantom dog with red glowing eyes was witnessed running through the priory ruins too!

Attached to St Mary’s Church you’ll find the ruins of Greyfriars Priory…

Terrified locals have reported hearing the ghostly sound of phantom monks chanting in Latin whilst ringing bells coming from the priory ruins in the middle of the night.

In fact, the locals are so frightened of the old priory site that they tend to give the whole area a wide berth after the sun has gone down!

Leiston Abbey, Suffolk

Leiston Abbey, Leiston

Leiston Abbey was originally called St Mary’s Abbey which was founded in 1182 just north of Leiston on the marshes at Minsmere.

The abbey was abandoned in 1363 and moved to Leiston due to the risk of flooding on the Minsmere Level…

If you visit Minsmere today, you’ll still find some old ruins at the old abbey site!

After the Dissolution of the Monasteries in 1536, Leiston Abbey became a farm with a farmhouse being built into the actual ruins of the abbey.

Today, the abbey ruins are in the care of English Heritage.

It’s said that Leiston Abbey is haunted by, surprise, surprise… ghostly monks!
