Haunted The White Horse Dover

The pub's cellar was so cold it used to be used as a mortuary in the 19th Century.  The resident ghost is called George and haunts the regular customers frequently.

Would you be brave enough to venture into a haunted former morgue? If so, The White Horse in Dover could be the perfect place to celebrate Halloween.
The Grade II listed building is situated near the ruins of a local Church and dates to 1365.

Its ghostly reputation comes as the result of the pub’s cellar being used as a makeshift mortuary during the 19th century. The White Horse was said to have the coldest cellar in Dover and was used to store dead bodies during the summer months.

Local legend suggests the pub has a resident ghost called George, whose body was among those kept in the cellar. He was a mariner who sadly died at sea and his corpse was kept in the pub until its burial.
Locals now believe his spirit haunts the pub, with several sightings of him over the years.
Why not join us at the White Horse this Halloween and try to catch a glimpse of George?
