History

London, England (UK) is home to one of the most haunted locations in the country, Langham Hotel. Come explore it with Haunted Journeys.

THE HISTORY

 

The Langham Hotel opened its doors in 1865 on land that once belonged to a noble English line, the Foley family, which ended after a series of unfortunate deaths. 

During World War II, the hotel was used by the English army and withstood, not without some damage and deaths, the bombings by the Germans. 

The British Broadcasting Company (BBC) purchased the hotel in 1965 and the lavish BBC Club operated inside. 

The hotel was sold again in 1986 and after the restoration was reopened in 1991. 

Throughout its history, royalty, political and cultural dignitaries, and celebrities, including Sir Arthur Conan, Oscar Wilde, Mark Twain, and Napoleon III, have stayed there.  

THE HAUNTINGS

It is said that there are at least five ghosts in the hotel. The spirit in room 333 is only there in October. A BBC newscaster woke up to see a fluorescent ball of light take a human shape. It hovered two feet above the floor the lower portion of its legs missing and was dressed in Victorian evening wear. 

Other spirits include a doctor who murdered his wife then killed himself while on their honeymoon, man with a large open wound on his face and Emperor Napoleon III, who lived at the Langham during his exile. 

Another spirit that is seen is thought to be a German nobleman who died when he threw himself out of the window. Guests have seen his apparition move through walls and closed doors.
