11. The Tower of London – England
The beheading of kings, the incarceration of state enemies, the plotting of political machinations from the Tudors to the Elizabethans; all manner of dark and shady deeds has gone down between the crenulations of London’s old fortress in the north shore.
Stories of hauntings and mysterious happenings started with the sighting of Thomas Becket (a martyred saint), who’s said to have stymied structure of the palace’s extension from the tomb.
However, it’s the apparition of a single Queen Anne Boleyn that causes the biggest stir — her headless body is seen lurking by the place where she was murdered at the behest of Henry VII back in the 1530s!
