If you’re into encounters of the spine-tingling variety, you’re part of a small but passionate group of travelers. “Paranormal Travel” enthusiasts participate regularly in online forums, and there’s even a small cottage industry that specializes in highlighting travel to spooky destinations. If this interests you or someone you know, here’s a quick list of some of the world’s reportedly most haunted places.
Castle of Good Hope, Capetown, South Africa. This place has some of the standard ghosts — a man who reportedly walks the ramparts, and a crying woman whose haunting ceased when her body was discovered in later excavations. But this castle also claims a supernatural canine that jumps up on guests as they walk the halls. Down, Fido!
Tower of London, England. Medieval England was not a warm and fuzzy place, especially under the rule of power-hungry and often insecure kings. The Tower of London claims the headless ghost of Anne Boleyn, Lady Jane Grey, and several other royals who were murdered by their more powerful husbands or uncles.
These four are of course just the tip of the ghostly iceberg. Lists abound, ranging from the quirky to the macabre and everything in between. One thing’s for certain: there’s a haunted place to explore in every corner of the globe.
