Things to see and do

Ghost Hunting

Things often go bump in the night at Bodelwyddan Castle. Why not join our intrepid and fearless ghost hunters for a taste of the paranormal?

As featured on Most Haunted, Most Haunted Live and Ghost Hunters International.

Bodelwyddan Castle has over 600 years of history, including the mysterious and grisly discovery of human bones found in 1829 buried in a wall behind a fireplace. According to records, the bones are still buried within the castle walls behind the figure of Y Gwr Hir (the Long Man).

Many ghostly occurrences have been reported over the years, such as unexplained sightings, shadowy figures, disembodied voices, people being touched and yelled at by unseen presences, and mysterious knocks, bangs and slamming doors during the night.

Not put off yet? Then why not join one of our regular ghostly events? Information on what to expect from our paranormal activities is described below - but make sure you check out our What's On section for forthcoming events.
