50 Berkeley Square
Just a stone’s throw from Green Park underground station is Berkeley Square, a pristine Mayfair square with wonderful gardens open to the public. Number 50 has a not-so-pleasant history, however. Now known as one of the most haunted houses in London, 50 Berkeley Square is said to be haunted by a young woman who died in the house. Over the decades that followed, various inhabitants and guests to the house have become severely affected by the ghostly presence in the house. One such person, Lord George Lyttelton, ended up firing his shotgun at an apparition in the middle of the night.
Luckily, guests at The Athenaeum get a much better night’s sleep than the visitors to our haunted neighbours. Soak up the spooky atmosphere by taking yourself on a self-guided walking tour around these spots in London, or embark on one of London’s ghost tours, such as the London Ghost Bus Tour or London Ghost Walks. Keep calm, because Halloween is coming…
