The Haunted White Hart Hotel
Bailgate, Lincoln LN1 3AR
A stone’s throw away from both the cathedral and castle in the heart of Lincoln’s historic quarter you’ll find the White Hart Hotel.
The White Hart Hotel dates back to 1710 but there’s actually been an inn on the site since the 15th century.
This old hotel is said to be very haunted…
The hotel’s Orangery restaurant was once the stable block.
It’s said that many centuries ago a highwayman was killed by a coachman who stabbed him in the face with a lighted torch.
Terrified members of staff and guests alike have witnessed the ghostly apparition of a highwayman running through the restaurant.
He’s often said to be hiding his face with his dark cloak!
In bygone years, a pretty maid at the hotel got the attention of the hotel’s rat-catcher.
She rejected his advances which resulted in him brutally murdering her.
Her apparition has been seen cowering in the corner of the first floor landing.
She’s now became known as the Mop Cap Girl!
Another female ghost seen at the hotel is that of an elderly woman in a period dress.
She’s been seen by spooked witnesses walking along one of the lower floor corridors.
In the 1960s a young man sadly committed suicide in one of the hotel’s rooms.
Some say that his ghost is responsible for the eerie sound of a phantom gunshot and the floating ball of light which is often witnessed at the hotel.Click Here to Stay in the White Hart Hotel
