Britain is a terrifying country to live in. Frightening, in fact; it's the kind of place where your worst fears might come true. It's also one of the friendliest locations on Earth and a tourist's paradise, but it shouldn't make you feel too at home. Ghosts from the United Kingdom may be polite, but that doesn't mean they aren't terrifying.

The United Kingdom has full of dilapidated ancient homes, ruined castles, haunted cemeteries, and post-industrial landscapes that are potentially more horrifying than any horde of zombies. There is history around every corner, and not all of it is content to sit in dusty tomes. When did that come from? Most likely, it was only your imagination, albeit 'probably' isn't the most definitive of expressions. Not for the faint of heart, but these are the UK's most haunted locations.

What are the most haunted and ghost places in the UK?

1. Pendle Hill, Lancashire

"Double, double trouble; cauldron bubbles and fire burns!" The good people of East Lancashire have been extremely wary of the feared witches of Pendle Hill ever since the infamous 1612 trails. Ten alleged witches who had been hanged at Lancaster Castle were interred beneath the hill. Since then, the hill has appeared on a number of TV programs, including a live broadcast from the "Most Haunted" team.

The ghosts of ten witches in total, all seeking retribution for having been wrongfully executed by the terrified villagers of their time. Alice Nutter, who was wealthier than her supernatural contemporaries and frightened everyone with her silence during the trial, is the most well-known of them all. The accusation that she used witchcraft to kill Henry Mitton led to her conviction.

Despite its intimidating presence over the Lancashire countryside, Pendle Hill is a beautiful place to hike and its summit offers an incredible view.

2. Tower of London

The Tower of London is a well-known landmark. It's not surprising that it's believed to be haunted given its history of housing prisoners during their final days before being paraded in front of the public for execution and housing the Crown Jewels. Thomas Cromwell, Sir Walter Raleigh, Guy Fawkes, The Cato Street Conspirators, and the Kray Twins are just a few of the historical inmates.

The corridors of the Tower of London appear to be home to several ghosts. However, Anne Boleyn, Henry VIII's estranged wife, who died on the scaffold, is the most well-known. After the doors close, she's frequently spotted moving between the rooms while carrying her severed head. She has been seen by others gazing out the window of the cell she was held in.

One of the most popular tourist destinations in the English capital is the Tower of London. For the chance to spot Anne's spectral reflection in the largest diamond in the world, it's well worth the trip.

3. Ancient Ram Inn, Wotton-Under-Edge, Gloucestershire

One of the most well-known haunted locations in the UK is the Ancient Ram Inn, which dates back to the 12th century. It essentially checks off every item on the scary checklist. It was constructed on a former pagan burial ground and is home to more than 20 regular ghosts. With supernaturalists flocking to the area year after year, it is currently the UK's epicenter of the ghost hunting industry.

A lost young girl, allegedly killed by her mother, a rebellious priestess, who can be heard weeping late into the night, and, perhaps worst of all, an extremely randy male sex-spirit known as an incubus are among the numerous ghosts that roam The Ancient Ram Inn's rooms and its eerie basement.

4. Berry Pomeroy Castle, Devon

Many consider Berry Pomeroy's Tudor-era castle, which was constructed way back in 1547 and towers over the Devonshire countryside, to be "the most haunted castle in the UK." Given that there are more than 1,500 castles in the nation, each with its own resident ghouls, this location must be quite haunted, right? Let's just say that if you are driving by on a moonlit night and you spot a woman's figure in one of the windows, don't stop.

The Blue Lady and The White Lady, two well-known ghostly tenants of Berry Pomeroy, each have their own tragic backstories. Locals claim that the Blue Lady was a Norman lord's daughter who killed her child after having conceived it with her father. Apparently, the Blue Lady appears in the tallest tower's window, beckoning outsiders inside. It is said that anyone foolish enough to visit the Blue Lady will perish by falling. The White Lady, who is frequently mistaken for her blue counterpart, haunts the castle's dungeons after a spiteful sister imprisoned her there.

The Duke of Somerset owns Berry Pomeroy Castle, a grade II listed structure and an English Heritage Site. Berry Pomeroy Castle is open for tours and can be rented for events like weddings and photo shoots.

5. The Red Lion, Avebury, Wiltshire

If the number of allegedly haunted UK pubs is any indication, the British enjoy drinking just as much in death as they do on earth. The Red Lion, located inside Avebury's mysterious stone circle and long associated with paganism, witchcraft, and superstition, would be the ideal bar to stake claim to spectral regulars.

The Red Lion serves apparitions, including a woman by the name of Florrie who pays close attention to customers with beards. Visitors frequently describe orbs of light, strange shadows, and cold spots inside the 400-year-old inn, which is never short of guests looking to test their nerves with an overnight stay. Ghostly children have also been sighted there.

Avebury, Marlborough, Wiltshire, SN8 1RF; The Red Lion; telephone: 01672 539266. Each person pays £40 for B&B per night.

6. Borley Rectory, Essex

This infamous haunted house was demolished in 1944, but that hasn't lessened its reputation among believers in the paranormal. It is largely based on the exploits of ghostbuster Harry Price, who gained notoriety for his work on a number of psychic investigations, including a not particularly spooky-sounding battle with a talking mongoose.

Up until its near total destruction by fire in 1939, Price's meticulous accounts of the Rectory's ghosts—most notably, a murdered nun—brought the location national notoriety. To the chagrin of some of Borley's long-suffering residents, there is no sign of the rectory even though pilgrims continue to visit.

Two miles to the northwest of Sudbury, Suffolk, and 24 miles to the northeast of Chelmsford, Essex, is the village of Borley, which is located on the River Stour.

7. Glamis Castle, Angus, Scotland

Nothing, it seems, seems to ensure a lifetime of covert imprisonment more than centuries of vengeful haunting. The imposing residence of the current Earl and Countess of Strathmore is said to be full of hidden chambers. A tongueless woman running through the garden, the infamous Monster of Glamis Castle, and an evil aristocrat who loudly laments a lost card game are some of the residents.

The Monster of Glamis Castle was the name given to a deformed child kept here in the 19th century. The enigmatic Grey Lady is another. This is Janet Douglas, who was beheaded in 1537 on the basis of a false witchcraft accusation, not the late Queen Mother, who was born in Glamis in 1900.

8. Culloden Moor, near Inverness

On this desolate moor, in 1746, the last battle to occur on British soil took place, ending the Jacobite rebellion and ushering in a dark era of suppression of Highland traditions.

The landscape is said to reverberate with agonized cries on April 16, the battle's anniversary, as phantom legions allegedly reenact the slaughter, as befits such a bloody battle where Jacobite prisoners and wounded were mercilessly massacred on the orders of the notorious Duke of Cumberland.

Three miles east of Inverness is the village of Culloden. Three miles south of the village is the battlefield, which is home to a National Trust for Scotland visitor center.

9. Springhill House, Northern Ireland

A listed building from the 17th century, Springhill House is located in Northern Island's town of Ballindrum, close to Moneymore. Springhill House has been in the Conyngham family's possession for hundreds of years, despite being owned by the National Trust since the 1950s. Before the house eventually started to decline during the early 20th century, the numerous heirs of the family and masters of the household had participated in a number of different wars.

Ingrid Lennox Conyngham delivered a depressing tale. Olivia had to raise the kids by herself after her husband, George Lenox-Conyngham, committed suicide, tormented by the knowledge that she could never save her devoted husband from his demons. However, Olivia is a relatively benign ghost; she only manifests during the day and has a genuine affection for kids, who she prefers to appear to.

Since Springhill has preserved the legacy of the Conyngham family's 300-year residence, it is regarded as a crucially significant piece of ulster history. The estate is usually open to the public and is home to one of the largest collections of 18th-century wallpaper in the UK.

10. Felbrigg Hall, Norfolk

Within its expansive grounds, which total 1,700 acres, the imposing Felbrigg Hall Estate stands proudly. Despite the idyllic setting of the hall, there are rumors of ghostly apparitions in the neighborhood.

William Windham III, a former resident, is the main target of Felbrigg's paranormal sightings. William was well known for his love of reading, and in 1809 when a fire started in his friend's library, William put his life in danger to save some of the priceless books from being consumed by the flames. Sadly, William fell during the rescue and suffered serious injuries. A few weeks later, he passed away from his wounds.

According to legend, his ghost frequents Felbrigg's grand gothic library to read the books he was unable to read while he was alive. William has reportedly been spotted by Felbrigg employees reading in a chair or at a table in the library with his favorite books in front of him.

You can now visit Felbrigg Hall to admire the opulent interior design and elegant furnishings of one of Norfolk's most eerie locations. Visit the eerie Windham library to see where William Windham III's ghost is rumored to reside.

It's no surprise that the UK is home to a huge number of spooky sites given its lengthy, bloodthirsty past and gloomy, dark climate. You might be looking for a spooky experience to get you in the mood for the spooky season since Halloween is just around the corner. That goes beyond watching the newest TV horror series nonstop. What if you want to travel and follow in the dead's footsteps yourself?
