Tour Locations | Haunted Chester: A Spooky Stroll around the Roman-Walled City
The Marlbororough Arms
As you follow the city walls, stop a moment to look to your right and you will spot the usual sign of the pub, the 'Marlbororough' Arms.
And, yes, it is a spelling mistake — but there's a reason why.
The landlord had money problems and cut his throat in the cellar in 1885. When a sign painter was at work in the 1980's, he came across the ghost and made the top in his rush to finish. The pub owners have kept it ever since!
When you're ready, continue walking.
