We're venturing back into Clerkenwell to visit the Sutton Arms - one of the creepiest haunted pubs in London!
Richard Jones describes the spookiness in his fantastic website (http://www.walksoflondon.co.uk/35/tours-of-haunted-london-c.shtml) here:
"Behind the enchanting, bow-windowed frontage of the Sutton Arms, is a snug and cosy interior that is haunted by a red haired old gentleman in old-fashioned dress who, since they have never been formerly introduced, the landlord has come to know as “Charley.” He has been seen sitting nonchalantly in a corner of the pub, and on one famous occasion, he appeared suddenly between two girls who were enjoying a lunchtime drink. Having given them a nasty fright, he grinned and then promptly disappeared. In October 1997, a friend of the then landlord, who was staying in one of the pubs upstairs rooms, was looking in the mirror, combing her hair, one night when a cold shiver suddenly passed over her. Net moment she saw the reflection of a red haired man, standing behind her smiling. She spun round quickly to remonstrate with the intruder, but was astonished to find no body there."
Join us for some quiet drinks, meet new people and enjoy the spooky surrounds.
