Legend has it that the ghost of the teenaged Katherine Howard (Wife #5) is out and about in the Haunted Gallery of Hampton Court Palace. Many visitors have experienced eerie feelings and sudden temperature drops in that area of the palace. People in nearby living quarters have reported hearing screams coming from the gallery. And guards from the Tudor period to the present time have reported seeing her ghost race down the hallway in a white gown.

You can see pictures of the Haunted Gallery here. Or you could actually take a ghost tour of Hampton Court, just in time for Halloween. They run from 31 October  – 4 March.
