The following is a list of reportedly haunted locations in the United Kingdom.

The kingdom is reputedly the most haunted landmass in the world, with England as the most haunted country, reporting the densest coverage of purported ghost sightings and paranormal experiences both per person, and by geographical area.[1] Scotland, Wales, and Northern Ireland are also rich in ghost lore (though far less densely populated), and there is not a single village, town or city which does not have reportings of ghosts and ghost belief going back multiple centuries.[1]
