Peterborough’s Most Haunted

By Linda Tancs

Britain’s Peterborough Museum is situated on Priestgate in the city centre, a place dating to the 12th century when the city was planned by the monks of Peterborough Abbey. The town’s origins may be divinely inspired, but it’s the city’s dark side that draws visitors. In fact, the museum is reputedly haunted by eight different ghosts. Are you a believer? Head to the museum’s cellar, where you just might catch a glimpse of one on the ghost cam.

Ghosts in the Close

By Linda Tancs

Mary King’s Close in Edinburgh, Scotland is an underground labyrinth of now defunct closes and dwelling places that once rose seven stories high.  The close was demolished to make way for council chambers in Edinburgh, leaving the remnants of the closes below ground.  These remnants are a snapshot of life as it existed in the 16th through 18th centuries.  Ghost stories abound, which makes this destination a good Halloween jaunt.  Join one of their Supernatural History Tours.
