Top five Halloween destinations revealedWed, 30 Oct 2013 00:00:00 -0700
THE TOP FIVE spooky destinations to drive to have been revealed in a spine-chilling survey.
Top of scariest spots is Edinburgh, which is reckoned to be the most haunted city in the UK thanks to ghostly sightings all around Scotland’s capital. There’s also the nearby Roslyn Chapel that made an appearance in Dan Brown’s book ‘The Da Vinci Code’
Next up is Dracula’s homeland of Transylvania, where vampires are said to roam the streets under cover of darkness. Bran Castle was home to Vlad the Impaler, while Lake Snagov is where the feared tyrant is thought to be buried.
Ireland scores midway in the top five for spooky places to drive, while Hertfordshire’s quiet countryside is also a ghoulish experience in fourth spot thanks to Minsden Chapel and its spectral monk on the staircase.
Rounding out the five most frightening driving destinations is Dorset, where an axe-wielding prehistoric ghost can be seen riding bareback on its ethereal horse.
The survey has been compiled by Europcar and the company’s managing Director, Ken McCall, said: ‘Halloween offers families the perfect excuse to get on the road and indulge in some spooky activities that are frightful for all the right reasons.’
