London is home to some of the most haunted places on the planet. We've put together a list of our top 5 most spine-chilling picks...do you dare to slip over to the dark side?
1. 50 Berkeley Square
Often referred to as the most haunted house in London - 50 Berkley Square holds a sinister reputation. Apparently haunted by the spirit of a young woman who committed suicide by throwing herself from one of the windows. Some argue that it's haunted by the ghost of a young man whose family had locked him in the attic by himself, feeding him through a slot in the door until he went mad and finally died. It has been said that many have “died of fright” or have committed suicide after daring to spend a night in the house.
2. Tower of London
Said to be the site of a number of supernatural elements, the Tower of London has a long list of dark and unexplained forces brewing in and around it. Historically a place of execution - we’re not at all surprised!
3. Highgate Cemetery
Once seen as the most fashionable place to be buried by the Victorians, Highgate Cemetery became a neglected necropolis following the hard economic times post WWII. Stories of cults practicing dark rituals and a vampire residing in the cemetery became media sensations. Though a number of people have reported coming face to face with terrifying apparitions within the grounds of the cemetery.
4. The Spaniards Inn
The Spaniards Inn is said to be haunted by infamous highwayman Dick Turpin. Local legend holds that Dick was born at the inn and later used it as a base for his nefarious operations.
5. The Ragged School Museum
Renowned as the most haunted school in Britain! Visitors are said to experience an array of hauntings. From being able to hear startling screams to seeing full bodied apparitions…definitely not for the faint of heart.
