Most haunted house in London
50 Berkeley Square
Constructed in 1740, it was the home of Prime Minister George Canning from 1770 to 1827. Following his death, the home began to exhibit strange happenings within. These included apparitions moving through the house, screams being heard and noises of all kinds resonating through the building. As a result of the haunted reputation, the home was not occupied for over 20 years from 1859 to 1880.
For a time, the home was rented by a man who became a recluse after his bride left him at the altar. He would wander the home by candlelight. Legend has it that the room that the man locked himself in during the daytime, now has a chilling atmosphere that makes anyone staying in the room fill with a terrible feeling.
Another legend is of a maid who lived in the house after the recluse. Following one night, the maid was found rigid with fear. One guest decided he would stay in the room as a result, ringing a bell twice if he felt ‘disturbed’. Later that night the bell rang once, and then frantically the second time. When the man was found, he was lifeless on the bed. Perhaps both of these people saw the shapeless and formless mass that is reported to dwell within this haunted house.
