King John’s bedroom was once used as a courtroom where many were sentenced to death; visitors have described an odd and unexplainable atmosphere in here. In this room, a baby is also heard crying. Guests who visit the Hanging Room have described the sensation of being choked, like the prisoners before. A grey lady and a knight have been seen, visitors have been grabbed and often feel a vicious presence lurking among them.
