Are you a fan of ghostly goings-on? 

Oxfordshire has been previously voted as one of the most haunted counties. It is also home to the most-seen ghost of 2009. 

Here are our top five spooky places to visit:

Oxford Castle, City Centre

Oxford Mail:

Oxford Castle was named home to the most-seen ghost of 2009 which is unsurprising given its 1000 years of history. 

The ghost of Empress Matilda is said to be a returning spirit to the castle who haunts the stairs in her white cape. 

Matilda had taken up residence in Oxford Castle in 1141, but it was besieged by the forces of her cousin, King Stephen.

She was left with no choice but to take flight in the dead of night. Stories recount how she was clad in a white cape to disguise herself against the snow and then escaped along the frozen river.

Although she did not die in the castle she lived there for years and is said to have called the land her home.

You can book a paranormal tour of the castle and grounds or you could even sleepover in one of the old prison cells if you're brave enough. 

Christ Church College, City Centre

Oxford Mail:

During the Civil War, the royalist stronghold of Oxford was home to King Charles I, during his time in the city he turned Christ Church College into his palace and held sessions of counter-Parliament in the Great Hall. 

After being defeated by Oliver Cromwell's Parliamentarians, Charley was sentenced to death and convicted of treason in 1649 - he was executed outside the Banqueting Hall in Whitehall. 

It is said his spirit returns to Christ Church College because of his love for the city and this great building. There have been notable sightings of him in the Bodleian Library, where he had once been denied the right to borrow books. 

Rollright Stones, Chipping Norton

With over 5000 years of history, these Neolithic and Bronze Age megalithic stones are made up of three parts, The Kings Men stone circle, the Kings Stone and the Whispering Knights.

Legend has it that the stones near Chipping Norton are in fact the bodies of a petrified king and his knights who tried to take over England.

Apparently, a witch by the name of Mother Shipton stopped them from attacking and turned them into stone. 

There was a petition earlier this year to protect the ancient stones after plans were drawn up to divert lorries along a road near them.

Oxford Playhouse, City Centre

Although a relatively new building in terms of poltergeist spirit capacity, the Oxford Playhouse stands in the place of the old nunnery. 

Some physical elements of the nunnery remain but more so do the spirits that once occupied this piece of land. 

A white figure can be spotted pacing around the building with a thin white veil covering her face.

Minster Lovell Hall Ruins, Minster Lovell

The ruins of what once stood the stunning Minster Lovell Hall lie beside the River Windrush.

The 15th Century Manor House was built in the 1430s by William, Baron of Lovell and Holand who was one of the richest men in the country.

The property later belonged to Francis, Viscount Lovell, a close ally of Richard III.

Richard III awarded Francis the post of Constable of the Royal Castle of Wallingford and Chamberlain of the Royal Household when he was in his twenties which is said to have made many noblemen jealous. 

After Richard's death, Francis fled to Flanders - he was last seen swimming his horse across the River Trent when he returned to England to support Lambert Simnel's revolt.

However, many people believe he returned to Minster Lovell and hid in a secret chamber until his death. His ghost is said to haunt the grounds still to this day.
