Tower of London

Tower of London

London’s castles crawl with spirits. The most haunted of them all? The Tower of London — where "off with her head" wasn't just a saying, it was reality. In 1536, Queen Anne Boleyn was arrested and beheaded at the Tower Green, a green space within the Tower of London. Other royal ghosts lurk in the castle, too. Arbella Stuart, cousin of King James I, was allegedly murdered in the Tower of London. While you’re there, be sure to check out the Bloody Tower, where two young princes, Edward V and Richard, were believed to be murdered by the Duke of Gloucester. These young boys’ voices and screams are heard throughout the tower. 960 1280

Located just outside London, Hampton Court Palace swarms with royal ghosts. Catherine Howard, the adulterous wife of Henry VIII, supposedly loiters around at night.

If you’re not too scared, visit the place yourself and check out the great hall, royal chapel, maze and gardens. You’ll feel the haunted vibes all around you. 960 1280

Farringdon Station

Located in the borough of Islington, this London Underground station has a haunted reputation.

From the station’s opening in 1863 to the present day, travelers on the Tube claim to hear Anne’s cries and screams in the train’s haunted tunnels. 960 1280

Theatre Royal, Drury Lane

Theatre Royal, Drury Lane

London’s renowned Theatre Royal, Drury Lane has had countless haunted sightings over the years. Both actors and staff members have claimed that they saw Joseph Grimaldi, inventor of the modern clown, and the so-called “Man in Grey.” The latter was allegedly stabbed in the Theatre Royal, and his bones were discovered in a side passage in 1848. The theater isn’t too spooky, though: Rumor has it that an appearance by one of these ghosts is good luck for performances. 960 1280

Bruce Castle, which is located near Tottenham Cemetery in London, was the site of a gruesome suicide.

Folklore has it that every November, around the time of the lady’s death, a figure can be seen jumping from the same balcony. If you dare, take a trip to the castle and nearby cemetery. 960 1280

Westminster Abbey

Westminster Abbey

Westminster Abbey is an inevitably haunted destination, considering that it houses more than 3,000 buried bodies.

After about 25 seconds, Father Benedictus vanished into the walls of the church. In 1932, two visitors reported talking to him. He’s typically thought to appear between 5 and 6 p.m. 960 1280

The London Underground’s Bank station gets its name from the nearby Bank of London, an architectural sight to see on your trip to the city.
