The case of the Hampton Court poltergeist first came to surface back in 2003 when a security camera picked up something rather…unusual.
Hampton Court had been considered a hotbed of paranormal activity for many centuries but this footage really took the world of paranormal enthusiasts by storm!
The estate near London has been known as one of the favorite spots to throw banquets for King Henry VIII. Many famous characters linked to the former king are said to walk the long halls in the dark hours.
Before we go any further, check out the surveillance footage below…
These days the Hampton Court estate is nothing more than a typical museum which is run over strict visiting hours. There are a number of security guards on patrol over a 24 hour period.
At the time of the footage, there was no one left in the building – the museum was closed down for the remainder of the day and the estate’s watchmen were on patrol.
All of a sudden, a loud banging noise rang out from one side of the building – the security officers were quick to cover the whole area but found no intruders.
They all met up in the estate’s control room and decided to check the camera footage to see if they could identify any of the intruders.
The footage revealed the ghostly figure wearing a vintage costume you see in the video above. It just appears, slams a door a few times and then disappears!
This is a pretty strange one – I’ve heard calls of hoaxes and I’ve heard that the security officers involved still believe (to this day!) that this is the ‘Real McCoy’.
If it is a hoax I must congratulate the guys/gals that set this up – that is one creepy looking dude!
Keep in mind that the security officers were covering every entrance and exit to Hampton Court at the time – nobody could get in or out without being spotted…
