And a range of ghosts… But don’t worry; they won’t bite, unless you provoke them…
The stone work and stair case are said to come from a castle that was called Fotheringhay castle. When the hotel was rebuilt in 1626, Marry Queen of Scotts was executed in the castle in 1587. Her son and grandson worked on demolishing the castle. It’s said that when marry walked to her execution she left a mark on the stair case by gripping on the handle of the stair case to keep her balance. Her ring left a small indent on the stair case. There is a monument of the castle , but the ghost of Marry could now be at the hotel.
Many ghost’s have been seen in and around the hotel, lots of activity has happened causing things to come off the walls, ghost’s have been seen walking down and up the stair case, furniture has moved and a picture of marry has been thrown off the wall a few times. A guest staying in the room dedicated to her has reported feeling cold hands pushing them against the bed. Could it be marry? Or someone else?
Check out these cool videos from ghosts hunters that were at the hotel, see for yourself if its actually haunted. Convinced? Then book yourself a stay, preferably in Mary’s room.
