Windsor Castle

Windsor Castle

Windsor Castle can lay claim to being host to several phantoms.

 

The ghosts are said to naturally be of royal connection - Elizabeth I, dressed in black, walks the library and castle walls; Charles I appears in the Canon’s House; George III has been witnessed in a room where he spent the remainder of his life in debilitating madness; Henry VIII has been sighted in the corridors and the sounds of the dragging leg of a lame man accompanied by groans heard in the cloisters have been attributed to him; a group of men were sighted in 1906 by an on duty sentry who shot at and charged at the group with his fixed beyonet, only for the group to vanish.

Windsor Park

Should you take the Long Walk of Windsor Park, you may witness the ghost of a sentry that committed suicide there.

 

However, Windsor Park has a ghost of legend lore – that of Herne the Hunter. He appears dressed in deerskin clothes, with a helmet made of a Stags skull and antlers. His phantom form is seen riding on a black stallion that spews fire, and followed by a pack of hellish hounds. This is none other than the Wild Hunt. He is said to have appeared to Henry VIII.
