Paranormal London

London has existed as a settlement for two millennia and has survived through many ages that have been fraught with plague, fire and warfare.

London has been a home to Romans, Vikings, Anglo Saxons, Middle Age settlements, Tudors, Stuarts, Georgians, Victorians, and the many people of “Modern” Britain. Be it King, Queen, Priest or peasant, generations upon generations of people have lived, loved and died in the City of London, some naturally, some at the hands of other and some by their own doing. But where do the deceased go once they have passed over into the spiritual realm? Some believe that those who had a particularly dramatic exit from the world of the living, or who felt a strong affinity to a place whilst they were alive, have managed to somehow leave an imprint of themselves in the mortal realm. Are these imprints of ghosts?

Many visitors of the city have reported “weird” goings on, places with “strange feelings” unexplained sightings of ghost

At the moment we are redesigning the site and will be trying to gather information about paranormal goings on in the city of London. If you have had a ghostly experience in the city, or know of somebody who has, then please let us know in the comments section below.

We are particularly interested in hearing from people who have encountered sprits or experience strange goings on in the following places:

  • London transport (buses, trains, undergrounds)
  • London pubs
  • London landmarks (e.g Big Ben, London Bridge, Houses of Parliament)
  • London Theatres
  • Outdoor spaces in London (e.g. parks or particular streets)
  • We look forward to hearing from you and sharing your experiences on the site!

    Hello, I’m an investigator with Blue Mountain Paranormal Society in Northeastern Pennsylvania, US. My family and I were just in London recently (Nov. 30th) to visit and I wanted to write to let you know of an experience I had while visiting Parliament. It was the end of our tour and we were in Westminster Hall. As I was standing in the back of the tour group, I felt like some one had pushed my purse up against my back, like some one trying to get closer to listen to the tour guide. But, as I turned around, I noticed no one behind me. The closest people to me were up on the stairs with their guide and others were too far to have done this and then walked away. I turned completely around and found no one near me enough to do something like this. It was very interesting. I wanted to share this with your group. The paranormal group I investigate with has had many, many experiences in the past and I myself have had many. I just wanted to share. Happy hunting!! Melissa Krom

    my partner and I went into a london pub very near the woolwich ferry on the south side, I think it may have been called the kings arms but unless i get the chance to go back there I am not sure, they had a little dog there called Freya who was sitting on the floor by us, then very quickly ran away from us, all of a sudden it went very cold. I have a habit when I sit in a pub of picking up unused coasters and trying to balance them on end (no idea why but that’s me) my partner had a coaster under her drink and I had one under my beer, but there were two others unused on the table, I went to pick up one very shortly after the dog legged it from our table but i couldn’t budge it, so I just left it and carried on talking. about three minutes later, i just picked it up as a normal coaster and started trying to stand it on end. Then the penny dropped, I said to my partner, “Hold on a mo, I couldn’t budge this a few minutes ago” so I felt the table and the coaster to see if they were sticky, but no, they were both and I mean Both very clean. I tried to put it back where it was and stick it there again so to speak but no, nothing sticky anywhere, whilst I am not afraid of the paranormal and was actually trying to rule out anything Paranormal, this did and still remains a mystery to me

    I’ve been poked in the back at the tower of London. Someone did that in the gift shop, as if the person wanted to get by me. I thought it was pretty rude, and stepped aside, saying, “Just a s-“.
    I stopped no sentence with nothing but thin air there, and no one within twenty feet of me.
    at Hampton Court, I’m certain I encountered Katherine Howard,who was more a sensation of ananguish approaching me than anything else. As a sensitive, I’ll detect a ghost as more of a thickness in the atmosphere, and this one came down a long hall, right up to me seemingly pleading. I felt badly, and all I could say was, “They can’t hurt you anymore.”

    I had heard the story about her. In the next moment, the voice of Michael York sounded in my headphones, “You are now in the haunted gallery, where Katherine’s ghost has been seen over the centuries running, and screaming in this area.

    Otherwise, I worked in two pubs in Highgate London, both of which were haunted. The Black Rose has a different name now, and had been the house of a tea toteller who clearly didn”t like people drinking in his home. He would turn on taps, so that ale would go to waste. I was a victim of that prank once. I’d started a pint, turning that tap off when I had to attend other things. Someone said, “Oy! Watch what you’re doin!”
    Looking back in that direction, I saw the pint overflowing with the tap fully on..The people were grinning knowing quite well about the ghost. I’ve always had excellent peripheral vision, and would have seen anybody moving anywhere near it.
    The other thing the old man did was sliding bottles off of racks to fall to the floor. They never broke, but we’d have to stop mid conversation to pick up a bottle.
    nowadays, there are no taps, and the bottle racks are enclosed in glass, so they’ve ghost proofed the place.
    The other pub I won’t name has the ghost of a young lady in a long brown dress. I’ve only seen her peripherally gliding to war the staircase leading up to the pub. When I turned to see her straight on there was nothing there. I used to go down there to change over the kegs, when the need arose. When I was busy with that, I had the distinct sensation of her standing behind me watching the entire process.
    None of the girls would dare go down there, being terrified of her. It seems she prefers the company of males, and can get rather violent with the gals. One was staying in the pub to have the ghosts fingers wrap around her throat, as if reaching up through the mattress to strangle her. Perhaps that was the fate of the lady in brown. Needless to say that bar maid no longer lives in the pub.

    one evening a few years ago my husband, daughter and me were walking along just past alexandra palace, london, when we saw a woman standing on the path just by some trees, she seemed to be watching us, it made me feel uneasy, as we passed i noticed her unusual hat, she had a hat like what welsh ladies used to wear, i could smell her perfume, so we walked past, and i was just thinking why was she there, she didnt have a dog, and you wouldn’t wait there, there was no bus stop or anything, so after a few seconds i looked back, but she had vanished, i do believe she was a spirit.
