These Creepy Stories About A Haunted Tavern In London Will Keep You Up At Night
A door slammed shut and a man heard the words, "There's just us two down here now."
On this episode of Buzzfeed Unsolved, Ryan and Shane investigate Viaduct Tavern in London.
The Viaduct Tavern first opened in 1869 as a gin palace (gin was popular amongst poor Londoners because it was cheaper than beer).
The tavern drew diverse crowds that included the working class, lawyers, government officials, and even criminals, due to nearby prisons.
There's said to be a ghost that steals people's drinks when they aren't looking, but a few of the other paranormal encounters described are a little scarier.
In 1982, the landlord's daughter was reading a newspaper in the upstairs loft, when she reportedly heard footsteps coming quickly up the stairs.
In 1999, two electricians were workings upstairs. One claimed to feel a tap on his shoulder, though nobody was present.
In the 1980s, a landlord was in the cellar when the lights suddenly went out, the cellar door slammed shut behind him, and he heard, "There's just us two down here now."
During Shane and Ryan's investigation of the tavern, they went to the haunted upstairs loft and the cellar below.
There've been plenty of paranormal allegations, but whether or not spirits haunt the premises remains unsolved.
