The Angel, Grantham -- Although it was just The Angel during the 17th century, Grantham's oldest inn is now called The Angel and Royal. The grounds originally belonged to the Knights Templar, and from 1212 until the dissolution of their order in 1312, it was a hostelry for royal travelers, merchants, and pilgrims. King John held court at The Angel in 1213, Richard III signed the death warrant of the Duke of Buckingham there in 1483, and the inn enjoyed a royal visit from Charles I in 1633.

The Angel and Royal. Grantham. Anyone staying here will be within the walls of one of England’s most historic buildings. It should therefore come as no surprise to learn that somewhere so very ancient should possess a ghost or two. These include a slender “white lady”; a spook called “Jasper”; and some mysterious lights . The Grey Lady - Drifting down the corridors of the upper regions of the building, this figure may be responsible for the poltergeist like actions in one of the bedrooms
