the Legend of Highgate Cemetery

What better place for a ghost to wander than in London's picturesque Highgate Cemetery?

Highgate Cemetery is one of the most well known cemeteries in perhaps all of England. In the late 1960's, this cemetery became the center of a media frenzy surrounding reports of a ghostly apparition seen by a number of witnesses. When it was reported that animals were found drained of their blood in the cemetery, the Legend of the Highgate Vampire was born.

The idea of an actual vampire lurking around in a cemetery is ridiculous. However, there have been a number of strange sightings going back to 1839 that have many convinced that this place is haunted.

Many locals, regardless of their belief in the paranormal, prefer to stay away from this creepy place.

Highgate is a very spooky place and probably one of my favorite places in London.
