Ghostly Goings On

As Halloween approaches, it’s the perfect time to look at some of the UK’s most haunted roads. If you drive often, chances are you’ve already encountered these spooky streets. Here are some ghostly tales from menacing motorways and horrifying highways:

A229 Ghost Bride

One of the oldest roads in the UK, the original road was built by the Romans. Motorists have claimed to have seen Roman soldiers marching across the road in the middle of the night! Similar to reports from the Bermuda Triangle, even cars, lorries and hitchhikers have been said to disappear from sight without explanation.


As this road passes through Hampstead, motorists will find The Spaniard’s Inn, a pub built in the 1500s and said to be extremely haunted. Hunting for passing drivers, a highwayman is said to stalk the area. So beware when passing this creepy drinking establishment.
