The Anglesey Arms. Caernarfon

The inn was originally a customs house, and next to the pub is the original hanging tower, which served as a place of execution.

The inn was originally a customs house, and next to the pub is the original hanging tower, which served as a place of execution.

The glasses on the bar sometimes move of their own accord or even hang in mid air. The pubs Darts sometimes jump out of the dart board, during matches alarming the competitors. Room 3 is the most haunted room in the pub. One guest even reported feeling someone sitting on the end of her bed one night.

    I live in the North East and came down to spend a short weekend with my partner staying overnight on the 6th August 11 at the Anglesey Arms in Caernarfon. We both retired to our twin bed room on the second floor. That was room 3.

    At just after 4am on the Sunday morning I awoke with what felt like my head being pressed into the pillow. This lasted a split second which obviously awoke me, the next thing was this noise of someone running to the door to the right of my bed. The only thing is…the bed is pressed right up against a radiator on the wall. Well I thought it was a cat or something but what came next was unbelievable!

    The keys on the inside of the bedroom door began to make a noise and the door handle was turning as if it was attempting to be opened. My partner woke when I blasted out do you see that. She couldn’t say a word, she was terrified with fear. Now what happened next was the activity stopped and next thing I heard was the same noises fro across the hall in what could only be room 1.

    A couple from Europe were staying in there and they were obviously having the same experiences as I was. I thought it was over and done with and then Bang! The door handle started moving up and down frantically. Both my Wife and I, and the the couple from across the hall came out moments later and nothing! whatever was creating this experience was gone.

    • Many thanks for taking the time to write up your account Jim, It must have been very disconcerting, especially being woken up and caught total by surprise.
