The Haunted Three Swans Hotel
21 High Street, Market Harborough LE16 7NJ
You’ll find the Three Swans Hotel along the High Street slap bang in the middle of the town.
The hotel dates back to the 16th century and is said to be haunted by a former landlord…
The eccentric John Fothergill was the landlord of the Three Swans between 1934 and 1953.
A portrait of him still hangs on the bar wall not because the new owners think it’s a great piece of art but probably because whenever somebody moves it disaster befalls them.
Injuries, fire and floods have all taken place soon after the painting has been moved!Click Here to Stay in the Three Swans Hotel
FEATURED HAUNTED HOTEL: The Black Boy Inn, Caernarfon
To the rear of the Black Boy there was once a convent which probably accounts for the many sightings of a ghostly nun seen walking through the building.
Many guests have heard the sound of a phantom child crying in one of the inn’s bedrooms.
Apparently, if you ask whether the child is OK it stops crying!
Members of staff and punters alike have reported seeing a ghostly figure of a man sitting in the bar area of the pub just watching people.
And a senior member of staff was certain they saw a ghostly apparition of a woman in the bar area when they were working late one night.
