Chester: England's Most Haunted City

Chester Ghosts

Chester is a city of ghosts and apparitions. Its narrow streets, shadowed squares, black-and-white houses, and ancient inns are full of unquiet spirits from almost every age of Britain's history.

Ghosts seem to be the disembodied souls of the dead. Ghosts have their reasons: usually death in extremis or unfinished affairs of the heart or the soul. In fact, most ghosts are sad; their aim is not to frighten us but rather to communicate some urgent fact or message so they can rest in peace. To that end, ghosts - almost by definition - can often interact with the living.

Do you have a ghost story to tell? Or maybe you are sceptical about ghosts? Then visit the Haunted House and have your say.
