Ghastly Tales From The Tower
Given all the bloody deeds, violent death and intrigues that the Tower of London has witnessed in its 900-year history, there is little wonder that it has the reputation of being one of the most haunted places in Britain. Royal and high-ranking prisoners have been beheaded on Tower Green, there have been hundreds of executions on Tower Hill, and many parts of the fortress have served as prisons, places of misery and suffering for those who fell foul of the law. If any place could lay claim to a host of tortured souls and ghosts, it would be the Tower. Following her sell-out events in 2018, Alison Weir returns to Lichfield to talk about some of the grim events in the Tower’s history, and the ghosts that reputedly haunt it.
