Travelers interested in the role that witchcraft held in the history of England may want to visit the Museum of Witchcraft in Boscastle, Cornwall.
According to Concierge.com, the museum features the world's largest collection of occult and witchcraft-related artifacts. The artifacts and educational material offered to visitors by the Museum of Witchcraft reportedly include healing charms and herbs, mandrake roots, spellbooks and mirrors used to summon the supernatural.
The museum also has a large set of artifacts related to the persecution of accused witches, including torture devices, according to the news source. A 3,000-book library of texts related to the occult is available to visitors by appointment.
The founder of the museum, Cecil Williamson, was reportedly something of a curiosity himself. According to the news provider, Williamson practiced witchcraft, but did not follow the supposedly benign principles of the occult and was known to curse whomever he saw fit. Due to the founder's lack of popularity, his museum was reportedly chased out of several previous locations and set on fire in one town.
