A view of the Tower of London.


Grim, grey, and also stunning, the Tower of London has controlled the London landscape, and the web pages of history, considering its building and construction by William the Conqueror in 1078. It is, probably, the most haunted building in England.


The Wakefield Tower is haunted by that most unfortunate of English queens, Henry VI, whose weak and useless power ended right here with his murder “in the hour before midnight” on 21st May 1471, as he stooped at the petition.

Tradition asserts that the blade with which he was “stuck would certainly be full of deadly openings” was wielded by the Battle each other of Gloucester (later the well-known Richard III).

On the wedding anniversary of his murder, Henry’s mournful wraith is claimed to appear as the clock ticks towards midnight, and also speed fitfully around the interior of the Wakefield Tower till, upon the last stroke of midnight, he fades slowly right into the rock as well as relaxes in harmony for one more year.


The substantial White Tower is the earliest as well as most prohibiting of all the Tower of London’s buildings and its winding rock hallways are the spooky haunt of a “White Lady” who when stood at a window waving to a team of children in the structure opposite.

It might well be her “inexpensive perfume” that impregnates the air around the entry to St John’s Chapel, and also which has caused lots of Guard to gag upon inhaling its pungent aroma.

In the gallery where Henry VIII’s excellent as well as exaggerated fit of armor is displayed, several Guards have spoken of an awful squashing feeling that all of a sudden descends upon them as they go into but which raises, the minute they surprise, drinking from the area.

A guard patrolling here one rainy night obtained the sudden and unnerving sensation that a person had tossed a hefty cape over him. As he struggled to free himself, the garment was confiscated from behind and also drawn limited around his throat by his phantom aggressor. Taking care of to damage without its scary understanding, he hurried back to the guardroom where the marks upon his neck birthed brilliant testimony to his brush with the undetected opponent.


A memorial on Tower Green remembers all those regrettable hearts that have been carried out below over the centuries.

Anne Boleyn and also Woman Jane Grey are both stated to go back to the location, whilst the ghost of Margaret Post, Countess of Salisbury returns below in a significant as well as worrying fashion.

At the age of seventy-two, she became an unintended as well as an undeserving target for Henry VIII’s minor vengeance. Her boy, Cardinal Pole had vilified the King’s claim as head of the Church in England.

But he was securely settled in France therefore Henry had his mother brought to the block on 27th May 1541. When told by the executioner to stoop, the spirited old woman rejected. “So ought to traitors do as well as I am none,” she sneered.

The executioner raised his axe, took a swing at her, and then went after the screaming Countess around the scaffold where h, hacked her to fatality.

The shameful phenomenon has been duplicated several times on the wedding anniversary of her fatality, as her shrieking phantom continues to be gone after throughout infinity by a ghostly death squad.


The Bloody Tower, the extreme name of which summons various terrible images, is home to one of the most touching tones that wander through this terrible fortress.

When Edward IV dropped dead in April 1483, his twelve-year-old kid was predestined to prosper him as Edward V.

Nonetheless, before his coronation can take place, both he as well as his younger brother, Richard, had been declared illegitimate by Parliament and it was their uncle, the Duke of Gloucester who ascended the throne as Richard 111.

The boys, at the same time, had been sent out to the Tower of London, ostensibly in preparation for Edward’s Crowning, and also were usually seen playing gladly around the grounds.

Yet after that, around June 1483, they mysteriously disappeared, and also were never seen to life once again. It was always presumed, that they had been killed on Richard’s instructions and their bodies buried, someplace within the premises of The Tower.

When 2 skeletons were uncovered under the stairs of the White Tower in 1674, they were assumed to be the remains of both little princes and also afforded Royal interment in Westminster Abbey.

The weeping wraiths of both kids, dressed in white nightgowns, and grasping each other in terror have regularly been seen in the poorly lit spaces of their jail time. Witnesses are transferred to pity as well as lengthy to connect and console the pitiful specters. Yet, ought they do so, the shivering revenants back slowly versus the wall surface as well as discolor right into the textile.


Returning to the White Tower, and also the courageous Custodianship Guards who roam its inside at the midnight, there is the spooky celebration when Mr. Arthur Crick, chose to relax as he makes his rounds. Remaining on a ledge, he slipped off his ideal shoe and was in the process of massaging his foot, when a voice behind him whispered, “There’s just you and I here.” This evoked from Arthur the very earthly response “Just let me get this bloody shoe on and there’ll only be you!”
