Even if you don't live in or near a haunted house, these webcams provide your chance to see a ghost -- or some other paranormal apparition -- with your own eyes. And if we're missing a ghost -- or otherwise paranormal -- cam, let us know about it, so we can add it to the list!

Llancaiach Fawr Manor Ghostcam

Located at Caerphilly, South East Wales in the UK, the circa 1645 Llancaiach Fawr Manor is now a terrific tourist attraction where visitors can hear about traditional customs and talk about the everyday life of ordinary people over 350 years ago. A house that old is bound to pick up a ghost or two over the years, and just in case there is one skulking about, the webcam's steady eye is there to capture it. If you see something, you can submit a report of your sighting. (The ghostcam is switched off between 7 p.m. and 11 p.m. on weekday evenings when Ghost Tours are taking place.)

GhostWatch at Ireland's Eye

In 1912, Helena Blunden was a 16-year-old worker in an Irish linen mill who had aspirations to be an opera singer. Hurrying to get to a concert one evening, she tripped on a mop and fell over a stair railing to her death. Her spirit, they say, still haunts the mill. Her footsteps have been heard along corridors, on the stairs, and in a utility room. The webcam broadcasts live from a print room on one floor of the mill. You can report a sighting if you have one. They also have an actual recording of Helena singing, which was made just three months before her death. 

Willard Library Ghost Cams

The Willard Library in Evansville, Indiana, they say, is haunted by "the Gray Lady." The apparition was first seen in 1937 when the library's janitor caught a glimpse of the veiled spectre in the basement. Since then, several other staff members have seen the ghost, smelled the scent of her perfume, and on numerous occasions turned off faucets that the spirit had turned on. Many believe the ghost is that of Louise Carpenter, the daughter of the library's founder. This site has three webcams, one in the research room, one in the children's room, and one on the staircase. The site provides some screen captures that seem to have caught something unusual.

The Leprechaun Watch

Not in the mood to capture a ghost on your computer? How about a leprechaun? The Leprechaun Watch webcam is set up is a hidden location in a field somewhere in Ireland, straddling the border of a "fairy ring" and the Coogan's ancestral farm. They're hoping a leprechaun will go strolling by in front of the camera - and you could be watching when he does. "The fairy tree is the last link the Fair Folk have to the larger range they once enjoyed when they ruled the land - their anger at this loss is understandable," the website says. "We are monitoring the area in front of the oak because of leprechaun activity there in recent weeks and months."

Knickerbocker Hotel

Strange things are said to go on at the Knickerbocker Hotel, located in Linesville, Pennsylvania. Visitors have reported hearing voices, seeing things move, or just having a very weird feeling in the place. Formerly known as The Arlington, the hotel was purchased in 2005 by Peg and Myrtle Knickerbocker. According to their website, "Peg is sensitive to 'higher vibrations'; just having her present seems to stimulate activity." Various ghost hunting groups have investigated the hotel and have come up with EVP. This site offers several cameras that you can watch for ghostly activity.

Texas Oklahoma Paranormal Research Center

The cameras for this investigation group aren't always on, but they turn them on for investigations, allowing you to tag along and watch what might happen. You'll have to keep track of their website to find out when the investigations are going to take place. (You'll have to register, too.)

Lincoln Webcam

The ghost of an "Ice-Cream Lady" is said to haunt this old theatre in Lincolnshire, U.K. The webcam is perched up in the roof of the building, and several people say they have seen images of ghosts on the captured video. "There are other websites I have watched and none of them have as many ghosts as you have in your roof - there is a lot of activity up there," says on ghost watcher from Scotland.


The views seen on this page are, they say, from 18 webcams set up in a 100+-year-old Victorian house. "The ghost are real," the site sates. "The people who lived here were also real at one time, and I am doing my best to find out who they were, and what their lives were like, and if it is they who visit the house. This is the purpose of the 18 live webcams." There are also EVP to listen to and a history of the house to read.

Paris Catacombs

The famous Catacombs beneath the streets of Paris, France are lined with the bones of long-dead Parisians, making it one of the spookiest places in the world. Strange activity has been reported here by many visitors. There's not much information on this webcam page. The words in French translate roughly to: "Vision of a gallery with infrared ... You have to find that ... If you pass, do something weird, the world is watching you ... Reload the page to have a new view ..."

Gettysburg Battlecam

Known as one of the most haunted areas in the U.S., the Gettysburg Battlefield in Pennsylvania was the site of one of the bloodiest battles of the Civil War. Numerous ghost sightings, sounds, and EVP have been documented there, including one of the best ghost videos ever recorded. This webcam is located on Seminary Ridge overlooking McPherson's woods where the first days battle began.

Furman Theatre, Greenville South Carolina

This webcam is focused on the university's 110-seat theatre, where you might catch sight of a rehearsal, set construction, or performance. They say you might also spot the theatre's ghost (every theatre has one.)
