Haunted hotel, York.

Haunted hotel, York. 

The Golden Fleece is an inn in York, England, which has a free-house pub on the ground floor and four guest bedrooms above. It was mentioned in the York City Archives as far back as 1503 and is rumoured to be haunted (the inn claims to be the most haunted public house in the City of York). The back yard of the inn is named "Peckitt's Yard" after John Peckett, who owned the premises as well as being Lord Mayor of York around 1702. His wife Lady Alice Peckett is said to haunt the pub, which was featured on Living TV's "Most Haunted" show on 16 April 2005.

“ Many guests have reported seeing the late Lady Peckett wandering the endless corridors and staircases in the wee, small hours and moving furniture. She is just one of the five resident spirits. ”

The pub is situated on "The Pavement" in the centre of York, opposite the historic Tudor street called "The Shambles". It has a large golden fleece hanging above the door. Nearby attractions also include the Merchant Adventurers' Hall (the merchant adventurers were former owners of the inn), Cliffords Tower, and York Minster. In 1983 the inn was designated as a grade II listed building by English Heritage.

I can highly recommend this pub if / when you're in York again....very friendly staff and good service but watch out for "things that go 'bump' in the night" :-)
