Wales is a country with a long history and rich heritage, rife in ghosts, myths and legends. We’re taking a look today at 3 castles in Wales with a haunted reputation, and best of all you’re able to visit them yourself. Who knows what you might find when you do!
Right in the centre of Wales’ capital city is Cardiff Castle. With parts of the structure dating back to Roman times and its iconic Norman keep, there’s a long history for the spooky goings on to draw upon on and potentially experience.
Over the years there have been numerous and regular reports of female apparitions haunting the corridors (the grey lady) and a phantom horse and carriage seen on the road outside the Castle. There are also reports of doors opening, light being turned on and off at night, despite no one being around and disembodied voices causing staff to look up from their work.
The second Marquess of Bute who began the castle’s restoration and died in 1848 before its completion is said to haunt the palace area of the castle. He has been sighted walking through the walls of the Chapel and library. The castle is open daily to the public and guided tours can be taken. If you visit, be sure to ask the staff if they’ve ever experienced anything!
