1. The Ten Bells.

Deep in the heart of London’s historic Spitalfields district lies a pub with a reputation that chills the bones. Whispers of restless spirits and unexplained occurrences have swirled around this watering hole for decades. While some might expect the hauntings to be linked to the infamous Jack the Ripper murders that once plagued the city, the truth is far stranger.

The pub’s spooky reputation centers around a tragic event from a different era. Back in the Victorian times, a landlord named George Roberts met a horrifying end murdered with a brutal axe attack. Legends say his vengeful spirit still walks the halls particularly the upper floors where staff once resided. Sleepless nights filled with unexplained noises and unsettling vibes became a common tale for anyone who dared to spend the night above the bustling pub.

But the chilling stories don’t end there. Whispers of another even more unsettling event have circulated for years. Some brave souls known as mediums have attempted to delve into the pub’s dark history. However when faced with the gruesome details of a past involving the murder of a baby even these seasoned investigators were left shaken. So scared were they by the perceived energy of the event that they refused to ever set foot back in the pub’s upper rooms.

Whether the tales are true or simply embellished over time the pub’s reputation for the strange and unsettling persists. So next time you find yourself in London, and perhaps feeling a bit brave why not grab a pint at this historic pub? Just be prepared for a chill to run down your spine because even without Jack the Ripper this place has a story to tell.

2. The Grenadier

Push open the creaky door of the old officer’s mess a place once filled with laughter and camaraderie. Now a somber mood hangs heavy in the air. Legend whispers of Cedric a young soldier stationed here long ago. Poor Cedric fell on hard times losing a hefty gambling debt to his fellow soldiers. The story goes that his luck ran dry and his enraged comrades took matters into their own hands. Now, Cedric is said to linger a restless spirit forever bound to the mess.

Look up the ceiling is plastered with dollar bills. Tourists and ghost hunters touched by Cedric’s plight leave these offerings year after year hoping to settle his debt and maybe just maybe bring him peace. A strange chill seems to follow you around, a prickling sensation that makes the hairs on your arms stand on end. Some staff members swear they feel a presence down in the dark cellar. Footsteps echo on the cold stone floor and sorrowful sighs seem to rise from the unseen depths. Whispers of other ghostly encounters hang in the air documented in faded newspaper clippings framed on the walls. Does Cedric truly haunt this place forever searching for a way to pay his dues? The answer like the chill in the air, remains a mystery.

3. The Bow Bells

The Bow Bells pub nestled in London’s East End, boasts a resident ghost but not of the spine-tingling variety. This particular spirit seems more interested in plumbing than pronouncements from beyond the veil. For years, patrons especially those in the ladies’ loos have reported the disconcerting experience of toilets flushing mysteriously seemingly on their own. Thankfully these ghostly flushes haven’t resulted in any embarrassing mishaps wet pants.

In 1974 however the staff at The Bow Bells decided they’d had enough of the phantom flusher’s antics. Taking a rather unorthodox approach they held a séance right there in the ladies’ room! With hushed voices and flickering candles they implored the mischievous entity to reveal itself. Their request apparently struck a chord (or perhaps a leaky pipe) a toilet door slammed open with such force that it shattered one of the pub’s mirrors. 

Whether the ghost was startled by the séance or simply wanted to make a dramatic entrance remains a mystery. One thing’s for sure, The Bow Bells can now boast a ghost story that’s a little more… flushed with humor than chills.

4. Spaniards Inn

Nestled at the foot of Hampstead Heath, a sprawling park in London sits The Spaniards Inn. This old pub wasn’t always a place for pints and laughter. In the late 1700s and early 1800s, it was a coaching inn, a place where weary travelers could rest their heads for the night. Maybe that’s why it seems to attract a different kind of guest these days the ghostly kind.

The Spaniards has become known for its spooky sightings. Some claim to have seen the restless spirit of a Spanish gentleman who met his end in a passionate duel over love. Others report catching glimpses of a woman in white perhaps a heartbroken soul forever wandering the beer garden. But the most famous resident (or should we say ex-resident) is the ghost of Dick Turpin a notorious highwayman. Legend has it he was a regular at the pub back in the day enjoying a drink in between robbing unsuspecting travelers on the road. Now it’s said he haunts the street outside, a reminder of his wild past.

Whether these stories are true or just campfire tales is up for debate. But one thing’s for sure The Spaniards Inn has a long and colorful history and its reputation as a haunted pub adds a touch of mystery to this charming London establishment.

5. Sutton Arms

Nestled amongst the bustling streets of London lies the Sutton Arms a charming old pub with a surprising resident a ghost! But don’t worry this isn’t your typical spine-tingling spook. This ghost they say, is a friendly fellow named Charlie with a shock of fiery red hair that sets him apart.

Unlike the usual ghostly whispers and unsettling shadows Charlie prefers a more social approach. Patrons have reported seeing him flitting around specific corners of the pub a cheeky grin plastered across his face. He doesn’t linger long just a quick hello or perhaps a playful wink? before vanishing into thin air. One afternoon he even materialized between two ladies enjoying a lunchtime drink flashed his signature smile and then promptly disappeared!

Now, some might find this spooky but most at the Sutton Arms find Charlie’s ghostly antics rather charming. He adds a touch of whimsy to the pub’s atmosphere a reminder that even the afterlife can be full of lightheartedness. So, if you ever find yourself at the Sutton Arms keep your eyes peeled. You might just catch a glimpse of Charlie the ginger ghost ready to share a spectral smile.
