Haunted Vacations

This post was written by Amy

I’m leaving on a jet plane tonight that is headed for London. I’ll be spending a week roaming the streets and soaking in everything the city has to offer. As I was planning my trip, I noticed there were a lot of haunted tours that one can take while in London. Pubs, hotels, theaters, sites, you name it. But let’s face it, in a city that old and full of life, there’s definitely a lot of ghosts wandering around.

One of my “must see” destinations is the Tower of London. Anne Boleyn is said to still be roaming the place where she spent her final days. I want to go see the place for its history and to see the crown jewels, but my senses will be on high alert to see if I can sense anything while I’m there. There’s so much mystery and legend and lore that is spinning through my head. I am sure that my trip, which is the first to London (and the UK for that matter), will be full of exciting and amazing experiences. It will be a bonus if there’s anything supernatural!

Have you ever specifically planned a trip to a haunted destination or stopped by one while on a trip? If so, did you see/hear/feel anything?

My husband and I look for ghost walks and haunted tours in every city we visit!

You should book a “Jack the Ripper Tour” and “Ghost Walk” in London (http://www.london-ghost-walk.co.uk/).

If you have the chance to catch a train north to York (about 2 hrs each way), you can also go on a good old-fashioned Ghost Hunt (http://www.ghosthunt.co.uk/).

Thanks for the tip, Brandi! I am going to try and squeeze in a ghost walk tour while I’m there. So much to see and do, so I guess it’s a good excuse to go back!

FYI the London Dungeon is a “haunted house” amusement – it was fun, but not what I expected when I went there. I agree with Brandi and do recommend the Jack the Ripper Tour!
