Public toilets can be extremely spooky places indeed, so we bring you the 5 most haunted toilets in the UK…
1. The Gwynedd Ghoul
Opposite Gwesty’r Llew Coch (Red Lion Hotel), Dinas Mawddwy, Gwynedd, a silver-haired old man haunts the public toilets across the road from this North Wales pub. Whether it’s true, or fuelled by the pints served there, it would certainly send a shiver up the spine of many a brave soul! Because of the remoteness of the location, visitors are spooked out easily!
2. The Grey Nun of York
At the York Arms, York, a grey lady who is said to be a nun has made appearances in the gents’ loos! With York known as the most haunted city in the whole of Britain, this comes as no surprise. With a blood-soaked history stretching back to the Vikings and Romans, many pubs in York claim to have a resident ghost. Many a ghost walk stop off at pubs around York, so keep an eye out when you’re spending a penny.
3. The Phantom Flusher at the Bow Bells
In the Bow Bells Pub in Bow, East London, a mischievous spirit flushes the ladies toilets whilst people are sat on them! Faulty plumbing or mischievous poltergeist? Well, the locals and owners took their haunted toilets so seriously back in the 1970s that they actually held a séance to rid the pub of the phantom. This didn’t flush the ghost out as a presence is still felt today. Yet, there have been no verified sightings, except the odd bit of mist around the bar area.
4. The Howling ghost of Ferens Hall
Hull University students using the facilities in the Ferens Hall student accommodation have been reporting strange goings on here for generations! Dark shadowy figures have been spotted hanging around the toilet area accompanied by an eerie howling. The building allegedly used to be a psychiatric hospital and the ghost is said to be that of the former owner.
5. The Chester Spectre
The beautiful city of Chester’s public toilets on Frodsham street have a terrifying ghost who’s been spooking people for years! The male toilets are haunted by the spirit of a man who took his life somewhere near the spot. Horrifying sightings have been made of the man dripping blood on the floor and these have intensified after the toilets were refurbished in 2011.
