Join Paranormalcityevents at a ghost hunt at Gwrych Castle, Abergele, North Wales.
Are you prepared to take on the challenge and spend the night ghost hunting at Gwrych Castle in North Wales and experience the ghostly atmosphere and discover what awaits.
The most reported ghostly encounter at Gwrych Castle is that of a lady dressed in white, is this the castle’s former owner? Countess Winifred Cochrane, who died in 1924
Winifred is seen wandering the marble staircase in search of lost belongings
The playful spirit of a servant girl is more than happy to make herself known, this poor soul came to an untimely end in the grounds of the castle
The angry lady dressed in red is not the most welcoming of hosts as she demands that people ‘get out’
There are several other stories of ghostly inhabitants who refuse to leave
In 2020 and 2021, the cast and crew of the British TV show ‘I’m a Celebrity…Get Me Out of Here!’ braved the castle and some experienced the ghostly activity reported here, strange lights, dark shadows, uneasy feelings of being watched
The Hauntingly beautiful Grade I-listed fairy-tale castle, which is set on a hillside overlooking the Irish Sea and the Vale of Clwyd was built in the 1800’s as a royal residence in the style of a medieval castle.
Gwrych Castle has had many uses until being left abandoned and decaying in the 1980’s
The ancestral home of Lloyd Hesketh Bamford-Hesketh, the High Sheriff of Denbighshire
It then passed to Bamford-Hesketh’s granddaughter, Winifred, Countess of Dundonald in 1894, and, when she died in 1924, she left the castle in her will to King George V and the then Prince of Wales (who later became King Edward VIII).
Due to this refusal by the King the castle fell into the hands of the newly disestablished Church in Wales before being purchased in 1928 by the countess’ estranged husband, Douglas, 12th Earl of Dundonald.
During the Second World War, the castle housed 200 Jewish refugee children as part of Operation Kindertransport.
After the war it opened to the public as one of the first country houses in Britain to do so. It was also used as a training venue for the English World Middleweight boxing champion Randolph Turpin in the early 1950s.
The castle’s doors closed to the public in 1985.
In 2020 the Castle rose to fame once again thanks to the pandemic and of course “I’m a celebrity get me out of here”
In 2023 Paranormalcityevents have access to this rarely investigated Haunted Gwrych Castle and areas including the Main Terrace and Upper Terrace, The Coach House, The Chapel, The Garages and The Dairy will be ours for the night.
Parking is Free at the castle
Water, Squash, Crisps and Biscuits are provided and included within the ticket price.
