LONDON - Are there ghostly goings-on at Henry VIII's palace, or is that hazy image of a fellow in fancy robes just a bit of Christmas cheer? Closed-circuit security cameras at Hampton Court Palace, the huge Tudor castle outside London, seem to have snagged an ethereal visitor. Could it be a ghost? 

Wood said security guards had seen the figure in closed-circuit television footage after checking it to see who kept leaving open one of the palace's fire doors. In the still photograph, the figure of a man in a robe-like garment is shown stepping from the shadowy doorway, one arm reaching out for the door handle. The area around the man is somewhat blurred, and his face appears unnaturally white compared with his outstretched hand...

Do you think this ghostly image caught at Henry VIII`s Hampton Court Palace is real?

I honestly have no idea. But right now im thinking it was just a tourism stunt.

I suspect that it is a tourism stunt, but I'm not sure. The apparition doesn't look photoshopped and it has a few ghostly characteristics, but it isn't exactly hard for a professional to manipulate an image into black and white photo.

Maybe it was just someone dressed up.
18 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Wednesday 1/14/04 - 11:47:25 AM EST (GMT-5)
NO.....do not believe in ghosts.
18 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Wednesday 1/14/04 - 11:49:22 AM EST (GMT-5)
I don't know if it's real, but it's freaky.

18 yrs ago, 2 mos ago - Sunday 2/29/04 - 7:45:00 PM EST (GMT-5)
Sure, why not? We have a friend, who is a professional, and is also involved in his church, who has an old home that is most definitely haunted. It's rather cool, actually!
18 yrs ago, 2 mos ago - Wednesday 3/3/04 - 12:36:03 AM EST (GMT-5)
Worst photo of a ghost ever. But it was probably there.

No, that just looks like a guy opening the door with a white mask on.
18 yrs ago - Sunday 5/2/04 - 4:04:53 PM EST (GMT-5)
I don't really believe in ghosts, but it's a pretty cool picture anyway.
18 yrs ago - Sunday 5/9/04 - 11:01:10 PM EST (GMT-5)
That's definitely some dude dressed up.

This is presumed to be a hoax though no-one has come forward yet. The main discrepency with this ghost is that he's dressed all wrong. Hampton Court was not used as a Palace until the time of Henry VIII. If fact, it's construction was only commenced during his reign. This 'ghost' which you see here is dressed in the Edwardian era. Some 150 years after Henry and when Hampton Court had reverted back from royal use.

^ Plus, he's holding onto the metal bars of a fire escape door. Such a thing did not exist in his time. All ghosts follow the behavioural pattern of their time. If this was truly a ghost, he would never have seen a fire escape. As well, on the actual footage, this man pushes the door open twice. The second time he catches it when it swings back on him to push it open fully. A ghost wouldn't have any need to do this.

17 yrs ago, 7 mos ago - Wednesday 10/6/04 - 12:06:37 PM EST (GMT-5)
yes! Aarrr i love it!

"to see who kept leaving open one of the palace's fire doors"

I thought ghosts could walk through walls? Hmmm.

Anyway, ghosts don't exist. It's definately just a tourism stunt.

Maybe it was, but one never knows.
