With its commanding view of the north western corner of Wales, Caernarfon Castle was built as a part of Edward the firsts of England’s plan to dominate and subjugate the Welsh. The imposing castle has seen much death and destruction over its history, so there no surprise that the place has a number of famous ghosts.
The most famous ghost at the castle is known as The Floating Lady. A glowing phantom has been seen floating around the castle’s corridors at night. It’s not know who she is, but it would seem she has a thing for electrical goods, as there are reports of electrical equipment being messed about with when left over night. In 2001 the apparition was snapped by a tourist, the photo shows a blue misty form in the courtyard.
The castle was the setting for many brutal murders and hangings over its tumultuous history, so it’s not surprising to hear that there have been many instances of ghostly noises around the places. It’s said that the groans and moans of its tortured victims can sometimes be heard echoing around the building. If you’d like to put that to the test, the castle is open year around.
