LUMLEY CASTLE: A Haunted Castle You Can Actually Stay the Night In!
The ghost of Lady Lily Lumley is said to haunt the castle.
Phantom children are often heard playing on the top floor.
And a ghostly apparition of a man has been seen sitting at the bar.
It’s said that a ghost known as Black Jack often plays pranks on startled guests!
The Shurland has gained a reputation worldwide for being haunted thanks to some incredible CCTV footage which was shot at the hotel in the middle of the day.
The CCTV footage, which you can check out on YouTube, shows a full pint of beer slide off a table and break on the floor without anyone touching it…
I don’t think the guy who bought the pint was too happy in losing his beer!
Apparently this isn’t the only paranormal activity to take place at the hotel.
Terrified members of staff have reported phantom footsteps and eerie banging noises on the walls.
On one occasion, the ghostly apparition of a little girl was seen to manifest briefly at the foot of a bed in one of the hotels rooms by a frightened witness!
FEATURED HAUNTED HOTEL: Amberley Castle
The Grade I listed 12th century Amberley Castle Hotel is located in the picturesque village of Amberley.
The castle started life out as a timber-framed hunting lodge in 1103.
But it upgraded to a fortified manor house in 1377 by the bishop of Chichester.
After the Reformation the castle still belonged to the church but was leased out to the crown.
During the English Civil War part of the castle was destroyed by Parliamentarian forces and it fell into ruin.
The Duke of Norfolk leased Amberley Castle in 1893 and started to renovate it.
Today the castle has been transferred into an amazing luxury hotel.
The castle is 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!
