UK’s Most Haunted Abodes


It’s that time of year where now more than ever, curiosities arise about haunted locations across the UK, with events and visits taking place, too. Just in time for Halloween, SDL Property Auctions have set their sights on valuing some of the most haunted properties across the UK.

Chillingham Castle, Northumberland

Chilling by name, chilling by nature. With origins dating back to the 12th century, Chillingham Castle is one of Britain’s most haunted castles. Famous for action and battles, it’s a Grade 1 Star-listed stronghold. The architectural details of the castle have remained the same through all the years. Complete with a dungeon, a medieval courtyard and a still room that is home to the painting of the haunting witch. SDL estimate this castle to be worth something along the lines of £132m.

Hampton Court Palace, Richmond

Famously known as the home of Henry VIII. Hampton Court Palace is historically haunted, with ghost stories told by Victorians. It’s said to be home to a number of phantoms, including a screaming queen, a grey lady, and a man in a mask. Of course, it’s an absolutely huge property, with “The King’s Apartments”, “The Chapel Royal”, “The Great Watching Chamber” and “The Great Kitchens” all standout areas within. Henry VIII devoted Hampton Court Palace to “pleasure, celebration, and ostentatious display” and in 2023, SDL estimate that its value is around £1.32bn.

Ye Olde Starre Inne, York

York’s oldest licensed inn, built in 1644 was used during the English Civil War as a hospital and mortuary for soldiers. With this being said, there have been reports of ghostly soldier sightings, and even a pair of black cats who occupied the residence 300 years ago. In the centuries that it’s stood, it’s had a few extensions and in 1954, it became grade II listed. While in 1662, it was sold for £250 to Edward Thompson (yes, £250!), SDL estimate it’s worth is around £5m today.

Whitby Abbey

An iconic British landmark, Whitby Abbey was first founded in around 657 AD, but today, we’re used to seeing its notable Gothic ruins towering into the skyline. With a heritage that dates back over a thousand years, it’s no surprise that this land is home to some hauntings! And not forgetting the inspiration for Bram Stoker’s Dracula, too. In 2022, it was voted the fifth most haunted place in the UK. Although it’s now a ruin, we still think that Whitby Abbey could be worth around £10m.

Tower of London

Finally, arguably the most well-known haunted property in the UK, the Tower of London, which was founded in 1066. Over the years, it has seen numerous executions and is said to be home to 13 ghosts, including Guy Fawkes. We believe the Tower of London may come in at around a whopping £85bn.
