There have been reports of guests connecting with the Countess of Dundonald and the other ghosts that haunt Gwrych Castle. Over the years many have felt, heard and also communicated with the spirits of old game keepers, servants and the dark energy of Lord Dundonald. Are you brave enough to spend the night in a haunted castle?

We will commence with a short welcome talk where you will be escorted you around the castle. After your safety walk, guests will be divided into smaller groups and the lights will be turned off. In the smaller groups vigils will take place in and around the castle using a range of paranormal equipment including dowsing rods and table tipping for those who want to participate.

It is advisable to wear layered clothing as temperatures can get cold on investigations and we recommend flat shoes with non-slip soles, as you will be walking around in the dark and on staircases with no lighting. Don’t forget your torch as the event does take place in locations that will be dark. You are welcome to bring cameras and personal paranormal investigation equipment. There will be tea/coffee available during the night and time to catch up with other group members. Please note alcohol is not permitted during the investigation.

Since the 1800’s when Anna, Duchess of Bedford would become hungry in the afternoon, Cream Tea became a fashionable social event. During the 1880′s, aristocratic women would change into long gowns, gloves and hats for their afternoon tea and it became a great social occasion.

The gardens at Gwrych Castle played host to such occasions during the time of the Countess of Dundonald, now its your chance to relive those days.
