Ghost Hunt at Dover Castle

What's happening?

Do you have what it takes to spend the night in haunted Dover Castle? If so book your place on an overnight ghost hunt at the UK's most famous castle. The investigation areas are vast with long Medieval tunnels, hidden passages and secret rooms. This haunted Castle, full of history, mystery and intrigue is a haven of paranormal activity. Haunted Happenings will be taking you on a journey where little is known about who or what haunts this historic castle and it is up to you to discover the ghosts and spirits that reside here.
Dover Castle in Kent is one of the most famous castles in England and has rarely been investigated. With secret corridors, medieval tunnels and many original features, Dover Castle certainly takes you back through layers and layers of history. There are not many stories attached to this Castle in terms of the possible hauntings but just walking through the rooms and stairwells is enough to decide never to do so alone and in particular in the dead of night. Ghost hunt events at Dover Castle are a relatively new concept here and we are thrilled to be given such an opportunity to hold an overnight ghost hunt at what we are sure will be a ghost hunting experience that you will never forget.
The ghost of a little drummer boy is thought to haunt the Casstle grounds. He was said to have been murdered whilst carrying out an errand involving a substantial sum of money. His murderers decapitated him and stole the money. The torso of this poor soul has been seen on many occasions wandering the ramparts and can often be heard banging on his drum in a slow methodical beat.
There is also thought to be the spirit of a woman whose apparition has been seen wearing a crimson dress. Nobody knows who she is or why she is haunting Dover Castle. The Ghost of a militia man in full uniform has been seen in the secret underground tunnels and World War II soldiers are commonly seen still performing their regular duties. One American couple who were walking through Dover Castle grounds heard the screams of what sounded like somebody being tortured. They decided that this must be a re-enactment and were shocked to find that this was not the case.
In the dead of night voices have been heard and doors have been seen opening and closing on their own. Cold spots are often experienced and whispering is often heard. Ghostly footsteps sometimes echoing in the stairwells and one member of staff reported seeing a pair of feet walking up the spiral staircase near the Great Hall. During the day a camera crew who were filming outside Dover Castle heard a loud piercing scream which seemed to come from the battlements above. Convinced somebody had fallen they ran to avoid the impact only to find that nobody was there. We are really looking forward to our ghost hunting event here at Dover Castle and will hopefully be able to add to the list of ghostly activity.
