With it’s long and turbulent history it is not surprising that the tower is haunted. Located in London, the tower has served many functions. The original building was begun in 1708 by William the Conqueror. Since its conception the tower has served not only as home to the royal family but as a zoo, an observatory, a mint and most notably as a prison. Many of Britain’s highest ranking citizens were held and tortured within its walls.

Many of the former residents of the tower are now said to roam its halls at night. Among the ghosts are three of Henry the Eights wives, Anne Boleyn, Catherine Howard and Jane Seymour. The two young prices who disappeared while in the tower have also been sighted upon occasion. There is even an account of a sentry having seen the ghost of a bear.

Tower of London EVP

This video features an EVP that was caught on a digital camera when visiting the Tower of London. It sounds like a man saying, “Get out of here.”

The device in the picture was used during the reign of Bloody Mary in the 16th Century. The person being interrogated (torture was illegal so they called it interrogation) would place their head in the top part, their hands in the loops and their feet in the bottom part, being bent over for days at a time meant your organs couldn’t function and your spine became crooked.
