The Holt Hotel in Oxford is said to be haunted by the ghost of legendary highwayman Claude du Vall. After his execution in 1670 at the age of 27, his epitaph read as follows:

Here lies Du Vall. Reader, if male thou art,
Look to thy purse. If female, to thy heart.

The spirit of this notorious gentleman is said to favour room 3 in particular so be sure and stay there if you want to meet him.

The Mermaid Inn. Rye. The cellars of the Mermaid were built during Norman times, and the existing street-level structure dates largely from the early 1400’s. As befits a hostelry of such age, this true English inn has welcomed countless travellers over the years and resonates with history. Moreover, it is also considered to possess numerous ghosts, and has been featured on the television series Most Haunted.

The Culcreuch Castle Hotel near Glasgow might be a good place to start. It is haunted by a good natured ghost that doesn’t frighten visitors.

@marinelife There is one in that list that is very close to where I live and I never realised that it was considered haunted!

You’re best bet is Edinburgh as it is said to be the most haunted city in Europe. There are plenty of hotels there that are thought to be haunted and of course there’s the castle itself!
