Theatre Royal Ghost
Theatre Royal daytime ghost - "The Man In Grey" - from 10 - 4pm.
Location: Drury Lane, Catherine Street, WC2B 5JF
Description: A ghost haunts the Theatre Royal in Drury Lane, a character known simply as The Man in Grey. The unusual thing about the Man in Grey is that he is a daytime ghost. While most ghosts like to make their appearance in the dark of night, the Man in Grey only ever appears between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. He wears a long grey cloak and a three-cornered hat of the type used by English gentlemen in the 18th century.
