Just in time for tricks and treats, Travel + Leisure has come up with a list of the 30 most haunted places on Earth, from England’s 400-year-old Raynham Hall in Norfolk — where the ghost of Lady Dorothy Walpole is said to roam the manor house — and Venice’s Poveglia Island, a plague quarantine zone, to the Lizzie Borden House in Fall River, Massachusetts.
California’s has several spooky spots on the list, including San Jose’s Winchester Mystery House (No. 19) and the Queen Mary in Long Beach (No. 6), where more than 50 people died during the liner’s 30 years at sea.
Other famous — or infamous — sites include Colorado’s Stanley Hotel (No. 11) in Estes Park, one of the inspirations for Stephen King’s book, “The Shining,” and New York City’s One If By Land, Two If By Sea restaurant (No. 14), which is haunted, some say, by the ghost of Aaron Burr.
