The ghost of a woman named Elizabeth is said to manifest in old-fashion clothes. Other spirits include a man dressed in a World War II uniform, a lady with grey hair who is usually found around the piano, and a little girl who is thought to have died on the staircase. People can be heard singing, laughing, and shutting doors despite no one else being around.

    I went to The Queen’s School from 1991 to 1996. My friend’s Father had an apartment in Stanley Place. He took many business trips away, and we used to sneak out of school to hang out there at lunch times, as well as having numerous parties there over the weekends.
    The staircase up to the second floor flat always terrified me. I hadn’t heard of any ghosts there at that time, but reading this makes sense. I used to sit outside the door to the apartment with my then boyfriend. We would often hear a child crying overnight, which bewildered us as we knew there were no children living in the building.
