Red Lion Square

Red Lion Square, in the heart of the West End of London, is reputedly haunted by three famous parliamentary ghosts - Oliver Cromwell, John Bradshaw and Henry Ireton.

Red Lion SquareThe three men were originally buried at Westminster Abbey in the seventeenth century, but after the Restoration they were dug up and put on trial in Westminster Hall. All three were found guilty of killing or conspiring to kill King Charles I and sentenced to be hung, drawn and quartered, despite the fact that they were already dead. The decaying bodies were dragged to the gallows, where they were hung and beheaded, and their remains were flung into a pit.

The field where they were eventually buried has now become Red Lion Square, and the ghostly threesome have been seen walking across the square, deep in conversation.
