Bath, Somerset, England

The Royal Crescent

The Beehive Inn

The Beehive Inn is situated on Lansdown Road, although Playfair states it is on Belvedere Road. This can be explained by the proximity to the Belvedere Villas at this location.

 

The building dates from the 18th century and started as a dwelling, later becoming an inn. Current Street Views from Google seem to show that the premises is now a private dwelling once again.

 

The apparition sighted at the premises whilst it was an inn has been seen by a number of witnesses, who describe a middle-aged lady dressed in a servants uniform of white apron, cap and shoes. She has been named 'Bunty'. Objects have moved and doors open and close on their own.

The Christopher Hotel (now All Bar One)

The Christopher Hotel was situated on High Street, but is now occupied by bar and restuarant called All Bar One.

 

According to Playfair, when it was an hotel, there was a bedroom here which a number of guests asked to moved from. There are reports of some people experiencing an uncomfortable "creepy feeling". It is not known if there any reports of phenomena at the premises today.

The Crystal Palace

In 1654, The Crystal Palace was known as the Three Tuns Lodging House. It changed its name in the 1850's, as a way of commemorating the Great Exhibition held at The Crystal Palace in London. In 1981, the landlord at the time uncovered several skeletons and a Roman mosaic in the cellar.

 

The pub is reputedly haunted by the cowled figure of a monk, and it has been reported by a number of landlords.

The Garrick's Head

The Garrick's Head pub was once the home of the infamous Beau Nash.

 

Whether it is his shadowy form of a "Regency rake" that has been reported near the entrance is not known.

 

The pub is also haunted by a grey lady. In life it is said that she fell in love with an actor. When her husband discovered the affair, he killed the actor in a duel. This drove the woman to commit suicide by either hanging or throwing herself from one of the windows.

 

Other reported incidents include a strong scented smell reported in the cellar, objects have been moved and electrical items have been switched off.
