The Hampton Court Palace in Surrey is thought to be one of the most haunted buildings in England.

According to their website, the castle is officially haunted by at least three specters. Catherine Howard, the screaming lady in the Haunted Gallery, has been spotted multiple times over the years by palace workers and guests alike. Sybil Penn, the Grey Lady of Hampton Court Palace, who has been spotted roaming the palace since her tomb was moved back in 1829.

The palace’s most notable haunting, however, has to be “Skeletor,” the creepy apparition that was caught on the palace’s CCTV in 2003.

Palace officials explain on their website:

“On three consecutive days, palace security staff were called to close one particular fire door near the palace’s Introductory Exhibition.
“On the first day, CCTV footage showed the doors flying wide open with great force but there was nothing to reveal why.
“On the second day, the same thing happened but this time a ghostly-looking figure in period dress suddenly appeared on the screen and closed the doors.”
They add: “The doors opened again on the third day but there was no further sign of the ghostly doorkeeper.”

Is this the ghost of the palace’s most famous resident, Henry VIII?
