The hustle and bustle of the modern life has left most people craving for a way to relax. While technological advances have made it possible to explore new places and meet new people without leaving the comfort of one’s home, there is still no replacement for travelling and exploring places in person.
For the more adventurous travellers, this means going to the road less travelled. Haunted attractions in the UK like Bodmin Jail speak to these kinds of people. If you are travelling soon and would want an experience of a lifetime, here are three incredibly haunted attractions worth your effort and time.
1. Pendle Hill
Witches and hangings are a good combination for any terrifying story. Pendle Hill has both. In 1612, some 12 Pendle Witches were hanged at Lancaster Castle and were finally buried in Pendle Hill. Those who are up for a good scare and are always looking for paranormal activity can climb the hill on Halloween.
Not only is there a possibility of a good scare, but the climb to the hill can also give you great cardiovascular exercise as well – a scary thought for most sedentary people.
2. Glasgow Necropolis
Adults and young ones alike are often terrified by cemeteries; how much more a sprawling mega cemetery? Glasgow Necropolis is an answer to the growing demands for more cemeteries in the 19th century.
During that time in Britain, about 50,000 people are buried in the Necropolis, but just a few have gravestones or names. There is a rumour that a towering 7-foot vampire named Gorbals Vampire roams the Necropolis and devours unsuspecting individuals out in the night.
3. Highgate Cemetery
There is just a particular brand of scary in cemeteries. Another cemetery that you can visit for a good scare is Highgate Cemetery in London. While the resting ground for stalwarts like Karl Marx, the graveyard is equally known to host witches gatherings, Satanists, and a vampire that is always on the lookout for its next victim.
Your adventurous spirit should be in places not frequented by the faint of heart. Experience a good scare with these three spectacularly spooky attractions in the UK.
