The Most Famous Ghosts In UK History

The UK has a rich and colourful history of paranormal activity, some of which will scare your socks off. There are many spooky stories and legends which have been passed down over the years of ghosts, ghouls and things that go bump in the night!

Some of the most famous ghost signings we know of are The Tower of London Ghosts. The Tower of London is thought to be one of the most haunted places in the whole of the UK.

The Tower of London was used as a prison and holding cell for those awaiting execution and it has seen its fair share of grisly deaths. It is thought that the ghosts of several people executed at the tower still roam its halls today.

One of the most famous is thought to be Anne Boleyn, the second wife of Henry VIII. She was beheaded in 1536 on charges of adultery, incest and conspiracy against the king. Her ghost is thought to still haunt the Tower to this day.

The Headless Horseman of York is another famous ghost who rides through the streets of York taunting and terrifying tourists and locals.

The Headless Horseman is thought to be a highwayman who was beheaded for his heinous crimes and continues his rampage even in death.

However, another tale depicts him as a 17th-century Civil War soldier who lost his head in battle. Accounts have said that he rides through narrow streets of the city, head held under his arm, before disappearing into thin air.

The Grey Lady of Hampton Court is thought to roam the corridors of the former royal palace in London. She is believed to be the ghost of Dame Sybil Penn who died of smallpox in 1562. It is thought that she roams the hallways searching for her long-lost love.
