Book Haunted Inns and Hotels in Kensington and Chelsea

The Hoop and Toy

34 Thurloe Place, South Kensington (SW7), Central London, Greater London, Kensington and Chelsea

Built in 1760, the Hoop & Toy is the oldest pub in the Kensington area. Because it was built on a former grave site, like the beginning of any horror film, it is said to be haunted. Entombing the bodies of dead priests, the spirits are said to be trapped after local underground works disturbed their graves. Since then they wander around the pub lost, hoping to find a route to their place of worship.
