Highgate Cemetery - Haunted History

Highgate Cemetery, London

London, London

One of London's biggest cemeteries and a location which is said to have hosted occult rituals, witnessed witchcraft and secret meetings of Satanic cults. The site, which is designated Grade I on the list of English Heritage Register of Parks and Gardens of Special Historic Interest in England, is also said to be home to a vampire and has countless ghost stories associated with it.

The apparitions spotted at the cemetery and the adjoining Swains Lane, include a shadowy figure in a tall hat, the ghost of a cyclist seen working his way up a steep incline, and a woman in white. In a letter in the local newspaper, the Highgate Express & Hampstead, one witness said that his car broke down near the cemetery and he saw a hideous face peering through the bars of the cemetery's gate.

Others have reported bells ringing and voices calling from within the cemetery at night, and it's no surprise considering that more than 170,000 of London's dead are buried here.
