Portsmouth is Britain's premier naval port with a recorded history stretching back to Anglo-Saxon times.
It has a glorious and infamous past - some of which returns to haunt the present day.
Contained within the pages of this book are strange and chilling tales of spectral sightings in public buildings and historic houses across the city, including Wymering Manor, reputedly the most haunted house in Hampshire, and Spice Island, one time home to pubs of ill-repute and press gangs.
Whether it be the sailors that perished on the Mary Roas in 1545 or the murder of the Duke of Buckingham in 1623, "Ghostly Portsmouth" delves into both the well known and not so well know history of supernatural activity in the city.
This book is sure to appeal to all those interested in finding out more about Portsmouth's haunted heritage.
