Aylesbury, Buckinghamshire, England

Aylesbury Market Square and Clock Tower

The Kings Head

The King's Head Inn is one of the oldest public houses with a coaching yard in the south of England. The Great Hall is the oldest standing structure on site, dating back to the 1470's. Set in the Market Square, it is a Grade II* Listed Building and maintained by the National Trust.


It is claimed that at a number of ghosts haunt the property. These include a Grey Lady; a Catholic priest; a Victorian child; a servant; and also that of Oliver Cromwell. It is thought that she is a maid who fell to her death in about 1900.


The Cromwell Room has a "distinct atmosphere... menacing and unnerving", and members of the Ghost Club apparently sensed a "mad, cackling woman" in that area.
