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: A ghost hunt weekend! Includes two nights of ghost hunting, your accommodation inside the castle, cooked and Continental breakfasts and Dinners including a medieval banquet on the Saturday night!(medieval fancy dress optional!).
We are also lucky enough to have booked the Kent throne hire and have the iron throne and Game of Throne film props coming along to add to the medieval theme! So raise your banners and come take the iron thrown at this magnificent 12th century castle, which is all ours for the entire weekend! Also included will be witchcraft/magic circles with spells & healing during Saturday daytime (optional). Lots of other special Twilight touches will be added to make this weekend as memorable as possible for you all! A very rare opportunity to have exclusive access to this immense and stunning castle!
