Feel the supernatural in ancients sites where members of Oxford University refuse to leave after death.
Oxford has many places that send shivers down the spine especially if you happen to visit the places with the idea of finding the truth behind them. There is no denying the fact that Oxford city tours have seemingly pretty places as stacked up as haunting to the core. To deny there is absolutely nothing paranormal about the places is an outright denial of many visitations that have been reported by scores of people with diverse backgrounds. Here I present Oxford’s most daringly haunted sites.
