The Haunted Salisbury Arms Hotel
Fore Street, Hertford SG14 1BZ
You’ll find the Salisbury Arms Hotel situated along Fore Street directly opposite Market Place in the middle of Hertford.
The hotel dates back to the 1800s but it’s actually built on the spot of a medieval inn.
Up until 1820 the Salisbury Arms was called the Bell.
It was named after the market bell in Market Place.
One of the pub’s cleaners was working on the first floor one day when she saw a middle-aged man dressed in black walk across the corridor and enter the room where a hotplate was kept.
The cleaner thought the man was a lost guest in need of assistance so she entered the room to see if he needed help…
To her surprise the room was totally empty.
There was no sight or sound of the mysterious man.
He had simply vanished into thin air!
Members of staff at the hotel also believe that Room 6 at the Salisbury Arms is haunted.
And on some occasion witnesses have even reported seeing a ghostly apparition of a Cromwellian looking figure walking along the hotel’s corridor.
