About this item

The strange cries heard at night in a dilapidated penitentiary, the glimpse of a ‘White Lady’ floating through a graveyard, the face at the window in a room that has been locked for decades – stories of hauntings never cease to intrigue us.From palaces to prisons, from an 11th century Cha^teau in France to The Island of the Dolls in Mexico City, Haunted Places features the world’s most fascinating spooky locations. Some hauntings are recent, others are ancient, but all the stories are striking: from the deceased monks who pace the boundaries of the ruins of a former priory, to the lift operator in a Banff hotel still working his shift decades after he died, to Vlad the Impaler who haunts Corvin castle in Romania where he was imprisoned for seven years.With tales of the ‘Mad Old Woman’ who searches Highgate cemetery in London for the children she supposedly murdered to strange laughter heard at night, from apparitions to floating orbs to radios suddenly changing station, Haunted Places features 150 outstanding color photographs. Each eerie photograph is accompanied by a caption explaining the story of the haunting, from tragic accidents to brutal murders, from executions to disease and other sorrowful endings.
