Earlier this summer, it was reported that the England cricket team had been spooked by a ‘presence’ while they were staying in the Langham Hotel in London – one of the worlds most haunted.
The reports aren’t the first of their kind, with as many as seven sightings reported at the hotel in the past.
England Bowler Stuart Broad explained:
‘During the Sri Lanka Test I had to move rooms, it was so hot in the room I just couldn’t sleep. All of a sudden the taps in the bathroom came on for no reason. I turned the lights on and the taps turned themselves off. Then when I turned the lights off again the taps came on. It was very
weird. It really freaked me out. I ended up asking to move rooms.’
‘Ben Stokes has had some problems sleeping as well. He’s on the third floor, which is where a lot of the issues are. I’m telling you, something weird is going on.’
Located on the famous Regent Street, The Langham Hotel was first opened in 1865 and became a favoured spot by Royals and the likes of Sherlock Holmes creator Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, Oscar Wilde, Winston Churchill and Diana, Princess of Wales. It is commonly believed that the ghost of former guest Napoleon III haunts the basement of the grand building.
The England cricketers aren’t the first to report mysterious phenomenon at the 149-year-old hotel, and in 2011, the Langham released a press release stating that many consider it to be spirit filled, with Room 333 believed to be the most haunted.
Taking to The Daily Mail, Broad went on to detail a particular sleepless night he’d had during his stay at the famous Langham Hotel.
‘One night I woke up in the middle of the night, around 1.30am and I was convinced there was a presence in the room. It was the weirdest feeling.
‘I turned the light on and looked online and could see Matt Prior was online, too. I went to his room and he said exactly the same thing! He was wide awake as well. Neither of us could sleep because we were so spooked out.
Matt was in a twin room so I ended up sharing with him. I don’t know if it’s because we’re talking about it more that we sensing more is going on but it’s weird. It’s definitely caused a few sleepless nights.’
