Most Mysterious Hotels and Inns In Britain

Most Mysterious Hotels and Inns In Britain

Haunted Britain has a rich and terrific history, which sometimes make people feel like a classical English novel. Many mysterious things rose up around the UK through this true-to-life story, some of which are about the haunted pubs, hotels, and inns that can easily be found here. The following five hotels and inns are great examples. Get some information about them and give your own opinion whether you believe in these tales or not.

 

Cross Keys Hotel

Originally built in 1693 as a coaching inn, the Cross Keys Hotel is the most haunted building in all of Peebles, Scotland. It is said the Bedroom #5 is haunted by the ghost of a lady named Marion Ritchie, the first landlady of the Cross Keys Hotel. There are a lot of paranormal activities here, and it is even said that Marion Ritchie’s ghost is the inspiration for Meg Dodds, a character in Sir Walter Scott’s Waverly novels.

 

Dolphin Hotel

Another hotel that was originally used as a coaching or staging inn, the Dolphin Hotel has been in Littlehampton, England since 1735. Haunted by a variety of ghosts, mainly ladies and children, the Dolphin Hotel is even the main base of operations for the Littlehampton Investigative Ghost Hunting Team, or LIGHT.

 

Globe Inn

Located in Ludlow, England, the inn is reportedly haunted by a former Tudor soldier named Edward Dobson who died in a pub brawl around the year 1553. His ghost, which can be seen wearing a cloak and a wig, has been known to hover over the exact spot where Dobson fell to his death; there have been numerous different apparition sightings throughout the years.

 

Langham Hilton

Touted as Europe’s very first and original grand hotel, the Langham Hilton opened in 1865 and was once owned by the BBC. Because of this, most of the ghost sightings here have come from journalists and members of the popular media; including the ghost of a German Prince and the ghost of a Victorian doctor.

 

Ring O’ Bells

The Ring O’ Bells in Middleton, England is a top secret hotel not only thought to be one of the town’s oldest buildings, but one of the most haunted as well. Parts of the pub’s foundation have been dated all the way back to the Saxon period, and it is thought that an ancient Druidic temple once stood here in the Iron Age. The pub itself is primarily haunted by an apparition nicknamed Edward, who is known for loud mysterious footsteps, strange feelings, weird noises and even manifesting himself visually to patrons.
