Creepy Halloween Stories

We’re not ones for gossip, but we love these spine-chilling ghost stories. Do you believe the whispers?

Aberdeen

Fyvie Castle just north of Aberdeen is haunted by the ghost of Lilias Drummond, who died there in 1601. It is said that Lilia’s ghost carved her name on the window sill in her husband’s bedroom the night that he married again. To this day the writing can still be seen

Glasgow

There are many tales of things that go bump in the night at Glasgow’s underground which opened in 1896. One example is Hillhead station, where there have been several reports of a mysterious sound of laughter which floats across the empty platform.

Manchester

Smithills Hall in Bolton is home to a rather mischievous ghost! Staff and visitors to the grade 1 listed manor have reported this playful spirit of pinching their bottoms near the stairs area between the Bower and Solar rooms.

Doncaster

The building of a late night pharmacy used to be the home of Annison Funeral Parlour. You’ll need to be brave to work here as nearly every employee has had an eerie encounter of some kind. Most people think the building is haunted by an 18-year-old girl who was murdered in 1891 and have reported hearing voices and footsteps.

Birmingham

Birmingham Town Hall can be a bit ‘bah humbug’ all year round thanks to the ghost of Charles Dickins, one of the greatest authors of the 19th century haunting the building. Dickins gave his first reading of A Christmas Carol at the Town Hall on the 26th December 1853 and now it’s said that this is the place his ghost has chosen to remain. He strolls through the corridors, apparently minding his own business.

Exeter

One of the most feared ghosts at Powderham Castle is The Grey Lady, who is usually encountered floating around the massive library of the home. Although the ghost is not aggressive the story goes that if you see the spirit of the grey lady it is a bad omen. Think we’ll just steer clear of the library at all times!

Belfast

One of the most notorious hauntings was where the now demolished John Street lies. It was a claimed a ghost of an elderly woman used to throw objects and furniture around in a downstairs room in one of the old street’s houses. One of the residents also claimed to have seen an old woman walking up and down the back room, talking to herself. When the street was demolished in 1882 workmen discovered the bones of an old woman, which had lay buried for a number of years. The bones were removed and buried in the local Graveyard and the hauntings stopped.

Cardiff

Cardiff Castle has a rather orderly ghost! A misty faceless apparition in a flowing white skirt has been seen in the stockroom. In the early hours of the morning she likes to move items around and rearrange them!

Southampton

The staff at The Station Pub have to keep a spirit in their cellar happy by ensuring the door to a second room in the cellar is permanently wedged open. The reason being that when it is closed the objects in the room get strewn all over the place! Staff have resigned themselves to the fact that it is simpler to just leave the door open instead of having to clean up the mess every morning.

Exeter

One of the most feared ghosts at Powderham Castle is The Grey Lady, who is usually encountered floating around the massive library of the home. Although the ghost is not aggressive the story goes that if you see the spirit of the grey lady it is a bad omen. Think we’ll just steer clear of the library at all times!

Norwich

Try not to lose your head over this story! There are multiple reports of Anne Boleyn’s spirit wandering around Bickling Hall dressed in white and carrying her own severed head still dripping with blood! As if that wasn’t frightening enough, people also say she sometimes arrives in a coach driven by a headless horseman and four headless horses!

Edinburgh

Edinburgh Castle is considered to be one of the most haunted places in Scotland. There are many spooky stories, but one of our favourites is the one of the lone Piper ghost. They say that several hundred years ago secret tunnels were discovered running from the castle. Instructed to constantly play his pipes so he could always be heard, a piper boy was sent down the tunnels. All of a sudden the music stopped playing and despite searching he could not be found. To this day his ghostly pipes can still be heard playing in the castle as he walks the dark tunnels beneath for evermore.

London

Staff and regular visitors of the London Tombs (located as part of the London Bridge experience) tell the tale of a young spirit named Emily lurking within the tombs. Several dissatisfied tour groups have complained about the woman, who they believed to be a dull actor, simply staring at them during their tour and doing nothing to frighten them. If only they knew the truth!
