The Langham Hilton, London
The Langham Hilton which opened in 1865 as Europes first grand hotel is situated on Portland Place and is supposed to be haunted by a number of ghosts. It was once owned by the BBC and many of the accounts come from journalists staying there.
There is a male apparition, said to be the ghost of a German Prince who committed suicide from the balcony of the hotel in the early part of the 20th century and an apparition of a grey haired Victorian doctor.
The Langham Hilton is the location where the broadcast with Ed Murrow (US War Correspondent), Charles De Gaulle and Prime Minister Winston Churchill took place.
Other notable guests have been Noel Coward, Gracie Fields, Charles Laughton, Mrs Wallis Simpson (during her courtship with Edward VIII) and Diana, the Princess of Wales.
