Explore haunted houses on a new history trail

Date Posted: 06/05/2015

The Historic Houses Association (HHA) has announced the launch of a Ghostly and Gruesome Trail.

A Ghostly and Gruesome Trail, linking ghost-filled properties across the UK has been created by the Historic Houses Association.

The HHA represents over 1,600 properties, all of which have stood for many hundreds of years, and most of which are still lived in. Tales of ghostly sightings, haunted houses and stories of mishaps are plentiful.

Delve in and tread the floorboards that former staff are said to still roam, and where lovers have met their tragic end.

Explore rooms in which soldiers are thought to have stayed and not yet left and visit the chapels where you can still hear monks praying.

Whether you’re an avid ghost hunter, a lover of historic houses, or just looking for an adventure, groups should enjoy one of the  Ghostly and Gruesome Trails.

Properties featured include: Woburn Abbey, Fulham Palace, Muncaster Castle, Glamis Castle and Beaulieu.

To find out more about the haunted house tours, access the trail here and click on the pins to uncover the stories.
