Hundreds of sightings have been made in the county, according to the website PsychicWorld.com, which says Sussex is the fifth best place in the country for spooky goings-on.
Four-hundred and thirty-eight instances of paranormal activity have been found in the area, the report found, which ranked sightings on a scale ranging from haunting manifestations to phantom treasure guardians.
The most prevalent type of paranormal experiences in the UK consist of haunting manifestations, such as spirits or poltergeists. These sightings account for 59 per cent of all UK reports, the report said.
Paranormal investigator and former Hastings resident Malcolm Robinson said the report would be great news for tourism in Sussex.
He added: “West Sussex clearly has a lot of historical buildings and castles. We know for sure many hauntings have appeard in castles in England.
“It doesn’t surprise me we have made fifth spot which is great.”
