13 of the world’s most haunted pubs and bars

The Mermaid Inn, Rye, East Sussex

The Mermaid Inn

Rebuilt in 1420, the Mermaid Inn in Rye boasts Norman cellars daring back to 1120. The site has played host to a long lists of non-paying guests, the most frequently sighted of which is a lady dressed in white who sits in a chair by the fireplace in room 1. Guests, many weeks apart, have told the same story of leaving their clothes on the chair during the night and waking to find them them wet. In the Nutcraker Suite, a lady in white said to have been murdered by smugglers has been spotted walking across the room and through the door, stopping at the foot of the bed for a moment on her way past. Two years ago in the Fleur de Lys room, a bank manager and his wife awoke to find a man walking through their bathroom wall and across the centre of their room. Meanwhile, wine bottles fly off shelves in the bar and a rocking chair rocks unaided in room 17.
