Are Ghosts Real? 
People want to believe.  Not only would proof positive give them a confirmation of life after death, but would cement those who have a deep faith in the power of the soul. None of us want to believe that this is all there is.

Haunted Castles

 

England

Arundel Castle, Sussex
The Blue Man is a common sighting at Arundel.  He's seen looking for a book in the library of the old castle. 

Bramber Castle, Sussex
When William De Braose landed on King John's "bad" list, he ran to Ireland and was captured there. It is said that the king held De Braose' children hostage and ended up starving them to death at Windsor Castle.

Cadbury Castle, Somerset
It's said that on certain nights of the year, ghostly guards ride about the castle with torches.

Corfe Castle, Dorset
It has been said that a headless gray lady wanders the castle's grounds, the moans of her sadness echo in the dead of night.

Dover Castle, Kent
Dover is an active and lively haunted castle, considered by many to be one of the top.  With half-men and women in red wandering, it's no wonder.  She's been seen in the keep stairwell and the lower half of a man has been seen as well.  

Featherstone Castle, Northumberland
Here Comes The Bride - The Baron of Feathersonehaugh was giving his daughter in marriage to a relative of his, despite his daughter being in love with someone else.  When the members of the wedding party went off for the traditional hunt, it wasn't until after midnight that the Baron heard from them again.  He sat alone at the table fearing for his daughter's life, when he saw the wedding party open the door and come in, passing through furniture and objects as they did.  They'd been slain in an ambush.  On the anniversary, one can still see the wedding party heading toward the castle.

Herstmonceux Castle, Sussex
It seems this castle has the feminine touch, as most of the ghost spottings are of women.  The Gray Lady and the White Lady among others.  One woman was seen on a small horse or donkey.

Hever Castle, Kent
The childhood home of Anne Boleyn, it is said she haunts the bridge area here. 

Hurst Castle, Hampshire
A monk and a small black dog are said to haunt the grounds of Hurst Castle.

Lowther Castle, Cumbria
Sir James Lowther is said to have fallen for a villager and was dreadfully unhappy in his arranged marriage. The girl died and Lowther kept her in a glass coffin until she was finally buried.  Lowther died alone. It is said that his coffin swayed over the open grave at his funeral and that his personal coach can been seen around the grounds of the castle.

Okehampton Castle, Devon
Animal hauntings. Both a black dog and a falcon are seen about the ruins.

Old Wardour Castle, Wiltshire
Lady Blanche Arundell - a Royalist supporter during the 17th century English Civil War - held out against Cromwell's Roundheads with her servants in a siege that lasted nearly a month. The castle was eventually captured by the Roundheads and Lady Blanche Arundell promptly imprisoned and executed. It is said that she walks from the castle to the lake in the fading daylight as a chill pervades the air.

Pengersick Castle, Cornwall
A man who attempted to poison his wife, died because she poisoned him first.
