If scary movies and fancy dress aren’t quite what you had in mind, there are plenty of ghostly places to visit around the UK for your Halloween fix instead.
From a hall said to be haunted by the ghost of Anne Boleyn, to a site where 10 women accused of witchcraft were buried, listed are 13 of the UK’s spookiest locations to visit this Halloween if you dare.
1. Pluckley, Kent
A total of 16 ghosts have been reported in Pluckley, which was named the UK’s most haunted village in the 1989 Guinness Book of World Records. Among the ghouls said to inhabit it is a phantom coach and horses and The Lady of Rose Court, who is said to have poisoned herself in despair over a love triangle.

2. Blickling Hall, Norfolk
As the birthplace of Anne Boleyn, who was famously beheaded on the orders of her husband, Henry VIII, after failing to bear him an heir, there is a wealth of history at this medieval manor house. It is reported that her beheaded body still roams the corridors of her former family home at night.
3. Pendle Hill, Lancashire
Pendle Hill is the location where 10 witches were sentenced to death and buried under the hill in the 17th century. While it may look like an idyllic spot, it is said to be haunted by spirits seeking revenge on those who buried them.
4. Ancient Ram Inn, Gloucestershire
Believed to be one of the most haunted buildings in Britain, paranormal activities are a common occurrence at this 12th century Inn. It is said to be home to two lustful demons, an incubus and a succubus, and a ghostly witch.
