Established in 1189AD, Ye Olde Trip to Jerusalem was a favourite watering hole for the crusaders. Richard the-lion-heart is said to have stayed here. Most of the building is carved out of sandstone and the pub is attached to several caves which were originally used as a brew house for the Castle, and which appear to date from around the construction of the castle in 1068AD. The earliest known written record of the Inn shows its name as The Pilgrim.
This fantastic old Inn has some very mysterious and spooky legends, one being that of the old “cursed galleon”. The galleon is a small wooden ship kept within the building, and legend tells that the last three people to clean it have all met with a mysterious death. As a result, no one has cleaned the ship in recent years! The ghost of ‘Yorkey’, landlord to the Inn from 1849 to 1914 is said to wander the corridors and cellars, often moving objects around. There are also many reports of chilling drafts, orbs and poltergeist activity… Not to mention the story of the ‘pregnancy chair’!
What chilling secrets will we uncover during what promises to be an interesting and scary night? Dare you join us in England’s oldest inn?
