5 Most Haunted London Underground Stations

11 Jun 2018

Narrated By Top5s

The London Underground train network runs deep beneath the historic streets of London; it’s a claustrophobic way of travelling and is used by thousands of people every day. However few of them have stopped to think what was disturbed when the structure was built and the long forgotten secrets that are buried within the structure.

During the building many plague pits were disturbed, and hundreds of bodies and graves were uncovered, so is it any wonder that tales of ghostly apparitions and deathly screams are rife in the dark, soulless bellows of this vast underground network. Here we look at just five of the many stations that are reported to be haunted.

5 Liverpool Street

Liverpool Street

Liverpool Street Station was opened in February 1874. During World War I it was bombed by the Germans and 162 people were killed. Before the station was built, there is evidence that the area was haunted by a girl named Rebecca Griffiths, who could be heard screaming at night. It is thought she was a patient from the nearby Bethlem lunatic asylum, and when she died, she was buried nearby without the coin she constantly held on to. It’s reported that she haunts the area looking for the coin.

Another ghost was allegedly caught on CCTV in 2000. At around 2 am when the station was deserted, a man wearing white overalls was seen on CCTV by the Line Controller, who was monitoring the CCTV.He alerted the Station Supervisor, who went to investigate. Unable to find the man he rang the Line Controller, who told him the figure in white had been stood next to him. The Supervisor conducted a second search and again he missed the man who again showed on CCTV very close to him. Eventually, he gave up the search, but as he walked back he noticed a pair of white overalls left on the bench!

4 Kings Cross St Pancras

Kings Cross St Pancras

Kings Cross St Pancras station is the biggest interchange station on the London Underground. In 1987, a horrific fire swept through the station killing 31 people and injuring 100. Part of the station had to be rebuilt. The station reopened again in 1989.

In May 1998 a young woman aged about 25 was spotted kneeling at the side of the stations corridor, she had her arms outstretched and she was sobbing uncontrollably. A passerby stopped to see if the woman was okay, as she started to speak to her, someone walked down the corridor and walked straight through the woman as if she wasn’t there. The young woman then disappeared. It was then that the passerby realised the apparition was, in fact, a ghost! This was a one-off incident and the woman has never been seen since. Could she have been connected to the terrible fire in 1987?

3 Covent Garden Station

Covent Garden Station

Since the 1950s, people have claimed to have seen ghosts haunting Covent Garden Station. The platform is said to be haunted by the ghost of an actor called William Terriss who was fatally stabbed on The Strand in 1897. It is alleged he was a frequent visitor to the old bakery that stood on the site before the station was built. William is often seen by staff dressed in a frock coat, hat and gloves pacing up and down the platform. It was when he started appearing in the staff rest room that many of the workers became so unsettled the sight of the apparition, that they requested transfers to other stations.

In 1955 Jack Hayden the foreman of the station was locking up after the last train. After making his final checks, all seemed quiet. When suddenly he saw a tall man wearing a grey suit and light coloured gloves walking towards the stairs. Quickly, he phoned the ticket office to let them know the man was coming up the stairs and to let him out. Jack took the lift up to find a puzzled clerk still waiting for the man. The two men searched everywhere but the man was nowhere to be seen. Jack saw the man several times after that, and he was also spotted by a 19-year-old porter called Victor Locker. A foreman from nearby Leicester Square Station also witnessed the apparition. Later after looking at some Victorian photographs of people connected to the area, they all picked out the same man, William Terris!

2 Bethnal Green Station

Bethnal Green Station

During world War II, Bethnal Green Station was used as an air raid shelter. It had 5000 bunks and could hold up to 7000 people. It saved many lives during the Blitz, but it was also the site of one of the worst civilian disaster of the war.

On the night of March 3rd, 1943 as people scrambled to the station to shelter, a woman tripped while carrying a baby and a bundle of bedding, an elderly man then tripped over her, this caused others to fall over them, resulting in a horrific pile-up of people. Adults fell helplessly on children and people just ran out of breath. In total 173 people were crushed to death that night. Bodies were lined up on the street and over 60 of the victims were children.

The tragedy that happened at this station has led many to believe the station is haunted. There have been numerous reports from the night staff, that when the station is deserted, crying and female voices can be heard. The sounds are described as people panicking and children crying, some say it is the spirits of the souls that perished on that tragic night in 1943.

1 Farringdon Station

Farringdon Station

If you visit Farringdon Station, it’s not unusual to hear the screams of a young girl who was never laid to rest. Long before the station was built the site was slumland, frequented by criminals, and home to notorious Gambling Dens. One poor young girl, unfortunately, became a victim of the surroundings she lived in. Anne Naylor was a 15-year-old trainee hat maker, who lived with her mother.

Anne was taken in as an apprentice hatmaker by the Mother and Daughter, who ran the local millinery business. Poor Anne was treated badly, she was beaten, tortured and starved. After one of her beatings Anne sadly died.The Mother and daughter panicked and concealed the body in the attic, but as the body started to decompose they knew they would have to move her, so they cut her up into small pieces and started throwing her remains into their fireplace. The pair hadn’t bargained for the foul odour of burning flesh, so they stopped the burning and threw what was left of her body into an open sewer close to where Farringdon Station was later built.

The corpse was found the following night but the coroner ruled that the girl, who had already been dissected by a surgeon, ( a common practice at the time) ruled it was not murder. The two woman would have got away with the killing had they not argued a few years later when the daughter blurted out details of the murder. They were tried and sentenced to death.

A largely forgotten crime, until Farringdon Station was built many years later. It is said that if you stand on the platform at night, the piercing screams of Anne Naylor can be heard echoing through the tunnels!
