Adelphi Theatre - Haunted History

Adelphi Theatre, London

London, London

Located on The Strand, the Adelphi is one of London's most famous theatres but the theatre's stage door is at the back on the building on the much quieter Maiden Lane.

It's here that in December 1897 the actor William Terris was stabbed by a fellow actor as he arrived for the evening's performance of the play The Secret Service. As Terris lay dying on the floor he vowed to gathering spectators that he “would be back."

Since then, tourists walking along the lane have reported seeing a shadow figure who they later identified as the murdered actor.
