The United Kingdom is renowned as the most haunted country on Earth. The British Isles are also rich in folklore regarding fairies, witches, giants, dragons and all manner of strange superstitions and customs.

But supernatural activity is as prevalent today in Britain as it has always been. Ghosts haunt our homes and highways, weird animals prowl our moors and fields, fairies are still to be glimpsed.

Uncanny UK is an online magazine devoted to the supernatural in Britain. Every week at least one new article will be uploaded, on British ghosts, fairies, witchcraft or alien animals.

We are always interested in receiving true accounts of supernatural activity in Britain. Have you seen a ghost or a fairy, or experienced a poltergeist? If you have a personal account or a family story to share, please tell us about it! Send it to: editor@uncannyuk.com
