Book Haunted Inns and Hotels in Greenwich

Spanish Galleon Tavern

48 Greenwich Church Street, Greenwich (SE10), Greater London

This pub dates from the reign of William IV, the Sailor King. When renovated in 1985, a bricked-up room reports revealed in the cellars. Inside was a well-preserved sailor’s uniform of the 19th century. This was when ships were changing from sail to steam power. That uniform is now in the Galleon Bar. This pub is reputed to be the home of a phantom black mastiff hound and occasional deep baying sounds are perceived. There have been reports over the years of ghosts haunting he bars, with cellars with some poltergeist activity. The pub name was suggested by paintings in Greenwich Hospital that became a Royal Naval College in 1873. These pictures showed engagements at sea between the English Royal Navy and the Spanish Armada
