Tower of London

You are here Home  > Historical Buildings >  Tower of London

Quite possibly London’s most haunted spot, the activity includes the ghost of Thomas Becket (who was murdered on these grounds in 1170), Arbella Stuart (who can be found in her room), and Anne Boleyn, usually seen walking while carrying her head. Other spirits include two children supposedly murdered by their uncle, both seen in white nightgowns, the “White Lady” of White Tower, whose perfume is usually the most noticeable sign of her presence, and even rumors of a ghostly bear wandering around.

  1. entire books have been written about the Tower. A fortified site since the days of Caesar it has been a palace, a prison, a zoo, a treasure house, pretty much anything the crown needed. Famous for being where the likes of Ann Boleyn was beheaded most people don’t know the last executions were in the 1940’s when German spies were put up against the wall and shot.

    My favorite story of the place was actually from the 1960’s. an RAF airman on guard duty near traitor’s gate reported seeing a shadowy shape inside the walls. He challenged it and getting no response, challenged again. after getting no response to a 3rd challenge he opened fire. This naturally turned out the guard who found, nothing, but marks of his bullets on the wall.

    This was not some local in the 1700’s but a man in the mid-20th century, the same time Americans were in Vietnam, who opened fire with an assault rifle. and yet nothing was turned up.
