St Briavels Castle has a history going back a thousand years. And whilst its original purpose was a castle, it has also been used as a prison, a private house and a school!! It now serves as a youth hostel. If you’d like to reside where past kings have done, I’m sure it provides a comfortable night’s sleep, as long as you don’t mind sharing a room with the original oubliette and several spooks!
It seems the spirits of St Briavels Castle, including a black dog, a Norman Guard and a knight in armour, are not afraid of making their presence known. Guests have experienced the sensation of being touched when in bed, as well as a tightening around their throats!
With loud, unexplained bangs heard, the sound of children crying and full bodied apparitions seen, you might not get the rest you were hoping for. Or maybe you’d rather book an investigation, stay up and attempt to communicate with those of the past…
YOUR HOSTS: Twilight Ghost Hunts
YOUR EVENT: This 11th century castle gave us some of the most incredible unexplainable activity we could ever imagine, so we had to come back and make the most of its gothic features by adding a vampire theme to our full exclusive weekend away here. I can truly say that I left a piece of my heart at this magnificent castle, I’m still in absolute awe of what happened whilst we where there. Myself and the team can not wait to take you there and give you a full weekend’s experience!
