Ghost hunt at St Briavels Castle


Fright Nights


Join Fright Nights (the original ghost hunting company est 1999) at St Briavel's Castle. Our first overnight investigation was over ten years ago and we have never been disappointed with the vast range of paranormal activity that has occured during our events. This is your chance to visit a location that has REFUSED the Most Haunted TV show so not to seek publicity and retains its high reputation with the paranormal community. Dare you join us?
The castle has stood on the site since 1110 in various incarnations but it was King John who is probably its most famous visitor, using the castle as a hunting lodge and administration centre for Gloucestershire that its most famous for. Since King John many Kings and Queens and historic characters have visited but for most of its time it has acted as both chapel and prison. Since 1947 it has been leased to the Youth Hostel Association.

Many ghosts have been reported over the years. In the Solar Room is the ghost of the crying child, it is one of the more prolific ghosts, being heard on many occasions. Recently during ceiling repairs to the room, the wrapped corpse of a young baby fell from the rafters - possibly confirming the source of the crying baby!

Another ghost haunts the grounds of the castle towards where the castle keep used to stand. He is a gentleman in a full suit of armour, who stands quite intimidating, watching your every move. The moonlight often shines on his armour and then in a blink of an eye he disappears. When he appeared in the 1950's it was rumoured that he was one of William the Conqueror’s soldiers.

Other areas of the castle also have reported paranormal activity; the "Hanging" room has paranormal activity and a strange atmosphere, while the Oubliette room has sent previous occupants leaving in the middle of the night to get away from the castle! The castle’s jail has a strange atmosphere and the original graffito on the walls confirm that it was often the last place they saw before their deaths.

Why not spend the night in St Briavel's Castle using ghost-hunting equipment and working with an experienced psychic medium and a paranormal investigator. A psychic workshop will also be undertaken and a tour around the castle to see what is lurking around the corner. Then you will be sitting in vigil in the castle’s most haunted rooms with the hope that ghostly activity will occur.
