Location of the Week

10

Care for traveling and having some spooks follow you around? Our Location of the Week takes us to an abandoned asylum in the UK that’s sure to give you the chills!

The Asylum wins our Location of the week for the extra chills we got for winter (this time, a spooky one). Built in the early 1900s sheltering thousands of patients with mental health issues, it definitely has that creepy feel – to add the fact that it’s been abandoned for years is a plus for those interested in the paranormal!

Congratulations dazb for sharing this insanely creepy location!
