Tower of London


The Tower of London is said to have a great many ghosts of historical significance, amongst them Anne Boleyn, Lady Jane Grey, Henry VI, Thomas a Becket and Sir Walter Raleigh.
Tower of London
Anne Boleyn has been seen as a headless figure (reflecting the horrific execution sentenced upon her by her husband, Henry VIII), her spirit surrounded by an eerie light. She is often to be found in the White or the Bloody Tower.

Sir Walter Raleigh's ghost is said to haunt the Queen's house, nearby to the cell that he was locked away in.

Lady Jane Grey was executed at the age of sixteen at the Tower after watching her husband's decapitated body being carried away from the block. She haunts the Tower on the anniversary of this terrible event.

One of the most gruesome ghost stories of all time is linked with the Tower of London, and describes the sad fate of the Countess of Salisbury. Her execution ceremony has been re-enacted by spirits on Tower Green, and has greatly disturbed everyone who has witnessed it. The Countess was sentenced to death in 1541 following her alleged involvement in criminal activities (although it is now widely believed that she was probably innocent). After being sent struggling to the scaffold, she ran from the block and was pursued until she was hacked to death by the axe man.

Other events reported at the Tower include the sounds of a phantom patrol marching past, terrible screams and cries coming from the torture chambers and bizarre smoke-like apparitions floating in the air around the battlements.
