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!
The Hauntings of Tilbury Fort
Maybe due to Tilbury Fort being an English Heritage property, there hasn’t been too many reported paranormal activity taking place at the fort when you compare it with its infamous neighbour Coalhouse Fort.
That’s not to say that it’s not haunted though…
It’s said that a shadowy ghostly figure seen at the fort is that of Queen Elizabeth I.
Locals also say that a ghostly soldier is seen patrolling along the walls of the fort at night only to vanish into thin air when you approach him.
Sticking to the soldier theme…
Sounds of phantom soldiers marching have been heard both at night and in the day coming from the parade ground.
As with Coalhouse Fort, Tilbury Fort has tunnels which are rumoured to be haunted…
Witnesses have seen a ghostly mist coming out of the walls and then start to eerily move along the tunnel corridor!
Whilst researching Tilbury Fort, I came across an interesting video on YouTube by Haunted Earth which claimed that the gunpowder room was haunted…
Chris Halton from Haunted Earth captured a spooky EVP in the gunpowder room which sounded like boys kill the boy!
He also claimed to contact the spirits of a Sargent Porter from the late 19th century and a person called Duffield in the room where the uniformed mannequins are on display.
