Learn about Bath's most haunted venues and locations for a spooky Halloween...

Theatre Royal Bath

The top left-hand box facing the stage at the Theatre Royal is said to be the favourite haunt of the Grey Lady ghost. Legend has it that she fell madly in love with an actor in the eighteenth century and hung herself when her love was unrequited.

The Garrick’s Head

You aren’t safe from the ghost of the Grey Lady even when you leave the Theatre! She is also said to haunt The Garrick’s Head pub just next door.

Francis Hotel

This historic hotel is haunted by a former housekeeper who sadly hanged herself. Guests have reported being kept awake by her scratching and tapping from inside their room.

The West Gate

The West Gate pub dates back to 1611 and its charm (and ghost!) still remains.

The Royal Crescent

Will you see the phantom horse-drawn carriage outside The Royal Crescent? The carriage is often seen and is thought to carry Elizabeth Linley and playwright Richard Brinsley Sheridan as they eloped.

Beau Nash House

Beau Nash’s lover, Juliana Papjoy, was so distraught when he died that she lived the rest of her life in a hollowed-out tree, vowing never to sleep in a bed again. Her ghost now apparently haunts their former home (now Amarone Italian restaurant!).

Longleat House

It is best known for its fantastic safari park, but Longleat also has some darker attractions.

It is said that the ghost of Lady Louisa (Louisa Thynne, Viscountess Weymouth c.1712–1736), still wanders the grand halls of Longleat House searching for her long-lost footman lover. The story goes that her jealous husband confronted the footman and pushed him down the stairs before burying him in the cellar, unbeknownst to Lady Louisa.
