There are just some places in the world which give you shivers down your spine. It is not something you can explain, but it makes you uncomfortable staying there. Sometimes it is good to go down with your guts and run as hell from a place like that. If you feel some strange vibe while checking out a house you are planing to buy, trust your instincts and don’t do it. Places which are likely to be haunted are not giving a warm embrace to people. Something very bad must had happened here. Ghost are restless if some injustice has been done to them, or if they died in a violent kind of way. It is not likely they will be friendly, so those stories about friendly ghosts as Casper is, forget about it.
There are a lot of stories about haunted places, not all are real ones. But, there are pretty big number of them making money on alleged ghost visiting. But, still there are places in the world which are “more haunted” than others. What does this mean? It simply means that many people have reported some paranormal activities on these places, more than on the others. These are the top 10 places reported as the most haunted. If you would visit them, surely you will get the idea why this is the case.
10. Borley Rectory
Borley Rectory is located in the small village of Borley, near Sudbury, UK. This small village doesn’t look haunted at all, but this village has a reputation as the “most haunted place in England”.
Borley Rectory was built in 1863 for the Reverend Henry Bull, it sits on the site of an ancient monastery. The ghost of a mournful nun who patrolled the so-called ‘Nun’s Walk’ had often been seen there. An old story claimed that she had fallen in love with a monk from the Borley Monastery – to much outrage – and the two had tried to elope together but had been quickly tracked down. The monk was executed and the nun bricked up in the cellars of the monastic buildings!
9. Stanley Hotel
I am sure you all know about Stephen King’s book The Shining, which was inspired by a stay at the Stanley in Estes Park, Colorado. Assigned Room 217, King reportedly heard ghost children playing in the hallway. Many have experienced paranormal activity here, but these real-life ghosts seem harmless. Many spirits are said to haunt the place, while guests and employees claim to have heard faint music coming from the ballroom and seen the piano keys moving.
8. Tower of London
The most popular spirit hunting this places, as reported, is the ghost of one of the wives of Henry VIII, beheaded in the Tower in 1536. Her ghost has been seen on many occasions, sometimes carrying her head, on Tower Green and in the Tower Chapel Royal. But, she is not the only ghost reported seen here, as you know, many people have died here, after all this is one old building, and as you all know the game of throne is never a pretty one, so not all people died in a pleasant way, many of them were innocent…
7. Woodchester Mansion
Woodchester Mansion is located in Gloucestershire, England. In the last 200 years workers have repeatedly run from the place and seven builders are rumored to have died in inexplicable accidents.
6. The Parisian Catacombs
The Paris Catacombs are mazes of tunnels and crypts underneath the city streets where Parisians placed the bones of their dead for almost 30 years. These tunnels contain the bodies of roughly 6-7 million Parisians. I am sure that no real ghosts are needed here, just the sense of death near you will make you feel uncomfortable.
5. The Skirrid Inn
Skirrid Mountain Inn is located in Llanfihangel Crucorney, Wales. According to folklore, in its 900-year history over 180 people have been hanged from a beam on the staircase, which is still in place today, with rope marks, apparently. The first floor of the inn is thought to have been a courtroom in the past. There are not to many people who have courage to stay for a night here. If some of you have visited this place, or even better stayed here for a night, I would like to tell us more about your experience there.
4. Rose Hall
Jamaica, doesn’t sound like a place where ghost go for a vacation. Contrary to popular belief that ghosts are in dark and cold places, there are places where ghosts like to go for a holiday,and Jamaica is one of the most popular destinations for all ghosts. Rose Hall is located in Montego Bay. This huge house is inhabited by the ghost of voodoo priestess’s daughter, Annie Palmer, who reportedly causes bloodstains to appear and disappear randomly. She was murdered in her bed after an 11-year reign of death, torture and nymphomania.
According to old stories Annie has murdered three husbands and a succession of slave lovers by poisoning, strangulation and witchcraft, before forcing other slaves to carry bodies through a tunnel to be buried on a beach. Stories say that it is not just Annie who roams the house, but also ghosts of the slave babies she sacrificed in rituals. Reports have it that her male victims have actually been not only heard but also captured on camera. Have a nice vacation in Jamaica!
3. Bell Farm
This is one of the worst hunting ever, the one which led to a living persons death. During the years of 1817 and 1821 a woman entity terrorized the Bell family. She became known as the Bell Witch or ‘Kate’. She had tortured John Bell so much that it led to his death. It is reported that Kate is still around and up for nothing good.
2. Edinburgh Castle
visitors of the castle, in various occasions have reported to be seeing a phantom piper, a headless drummer, the spirits of French prisoners from the Seven Years War, colonial prisoners from the American Revolutionary War – and even the ghost of a dog wandering in the grounds’ dog cemetery. This historical fortress is standing here over 900 years. Lot of history and lot of deaths, lot of spirits must be wondering around.
India sounds nice, but when it comes up to ghosts, if you are willing to meet some here is the right place. First the locals will scare the shit out of you telling you the scariest ghost stories, and as if that is not enough, you will come up on a warning of an Authority not to visit this place after dusk. Birds and wildlife fall silent as the spirit of the sorcerer approaches at night, and nobody has ever tried to spend the night there.
I am willing to take a chance and visit all these places and maybe, if I am not to scared check them out in the night time. Is anyone else up for an adventure like this? I am, not gladly, admitting that I am not up for doing this on my own. It would be nice if some of you readers has guts for something like this, we could make a great journey and maybe some of the legends prove to be false.
