T he UK is teem­ing with haunted ho­tels, so you’re spoilt for choice if you’re ac­tively seek­ing a night spent hid­ing un­der your duvet! Still, these three are worth check­ing out…

The Skir­rid Inn, Mon­mouthshire

The old­est pub in Wales, if not the UK, this is re­puted to be haunted by the ghost of a for­mer land­lady – as well as the lost souls of at least 180 pris­on­ers who were hanged in this very pub. Visi­tors to the pub of­ten claim they can feel the noose tight­en­ing round their necks…

The Lang­ham, London

This swanky ho­tel boasts a whole plethora of ghosts, in­clud­ing a Ger­man prince who com­mit­ted sui­cide by jump­ing out of the win­dow on the fourth floor, a phan­tom but­ler, and a gen­tle­man in Vic­to­rian dress in room 333. He’s thought to have mur­dered his wife then killed him­self.

The Red Lion, Ave­bury

Sur­rounded by the iconic stone cir­cle, this inn is in an idyl­lic set­ting – but it gets scary after dark. There’s Flor­rie, whose throat was slit by her hus­band and who has a thing for bearded men, two ghostly chil­dren and their mum, and a phan­tom coach and horses that clat­ters along nonex­is­tent cob­bles – but only when the cur­rent land­lord is about to die!
