Windsor Castle

Windsor Castle is one of the main royal residences and is the largest inhabited castle in the world. It is also home to a variety of royal ghosts.

Windsor CastleHenry VIII has been seen wandering the corridors of the castle and his footsteps and agonized groans have been heard by many visitors.

Anne Boleyn, Henry VIII's second wife, has been spotted at the window in Dean's Cloister, as has Queen Elizabeth I. Elizabeth has also been seen in the Royal Library, and her footsteps have been heard walking from room to room. In all accounts she has been wearing a black lace shawl and gown.

Charles I has appeared on several occasions with his head intact, despite the fact that he was beheaded during the English Revolution. He has been seen in the library as well as the Canon's house, looking remarkably like the portraits painted of him.

King George III has been seen at one of the windows below the royal Library, where he was confined during his mental deterioration.

As well as royal ghosts, Sir George Villiers, the first Duke of Buckingham, is said to appear in one of the bedrooms and the ghost of Herne the Hunter has been seen many times in the Castle gardens.

Many ghostly spirits haunt the Long Walk, including the ghost of a soldier who committed suicide after declaring that he had seen the marble statues in the park move about of their own accord.

Several other ghosts have been seen around the towers of the castle and in the gardens and cloisters.
