The Kings Arms

 

The Kings Arms

High Street, Hemel Hempstead, Herts.

The King’s Arms was certainly in existence in the 16th century, a fact borne out by the patronage of Henry VIII, in the days when he was courting Anne Boleyn, and later when the inn was visited several times by Edward VI, the son of Henry’s third wife, Jane Seymour.  The inn is haunted by the occasional visit of a Lady in White, and a tall fat man, who laughs. Perhaps the couple are Henry and Anne, revisiting the place they knew in their romantic courting days.
