Haunting Nights Ghost Adventure Continues…… on an overnight ghost hunt at Gwrych Castle, Abergele, North Wales

The cries of I’m a celebrity get me out of here that once resonated throughout Gwrych Castle in Wales are long gone but the hauntings remain

Are you prepared to take on the challenge and spend the night ghost hunting at Gwrych Castle in North Wales with the Haunting Nights team?

The most reported ghostly encounter at Gwrych Castle is that of a lady dressed in white, is this the castle’s former owner?  Countess Winifred Cochrane, who died in 1924

Winifred is seen wandering the marble staircase in search of lost belongings

The playful spirit of a servant girl is more than happy to make herself known, this poor soul came to an untimely end in the grounds of the castle

The angry lady dressed in red is not the most welcoming of hosts as she demands that people ‘get out’

There are several other stories of ghostly inhabitants who refuse to leave

In 2020 and 2021, the cast and crew of the British TV show ‘I’m a Celebrity…Get Me Out of Here!’ braved the castle and some experienced the ghostly activity reported here, strange lights, dark shadows, uneasy feelings of being watched

A manager at the Gwrych castle recently wrote on the castle’s website that he had a strange experience at one gate of the castle.

He reported hearing the gates clatter and the sound of footsteps approaching him. The footsteps stopped about a foot away from him. Terrified, the manager switched on his flashlight, only to find he was alone.

The Hauntingly beautiful Grade I-listed fairy-tale castle, which is set on a hillside overlooking the Irish Sea and the Vale of Clwyd was built in the 1800’s as a royal residence in the style of a medieval castle.

Gwrych Castle has had many uses until being left abandoned and decaying in the 1980’s

The ancestral home of Lloyd Hesketh Bamford-Hesketh, the High Sheriff of Denbighshire

It then passed to Bamford-Hesketh’s granddaughter, Winifred, Countess of Dundonald in 1894, and, when she died in 1924, she left the castle in her will to King George V and the then Prince of Wales (who later became King Edward VIII).

Due to this refusal by the King the castle fell into the hands of the newly disestablished Church in Wales before being purchased in 1928 by the countess’ estranged husband, Douglas, 12th Earl of Dundonald.

During the Second World War, the castle housed 200 Jewish refugee children as part of Operation Kindertransport.

After the war it opened to the public as one of the first country houses in Britain to do so. It was also used as a training venue for the English World Middleweight boxing champion Randolph Turpin in the early 1950s.

The castle’s doors closed to the public in 1985.

In 2020 the Castle rose to fame once again thanks to the pandemic and of course “I’m a celebrity get me out of here

In 2023 Haunting Nights have access to this rarely investigated Haunted Gwrych Castle and areas including the Main Terrace and Upper Terrace, The Coach House, The Chapel, The Garages and The Dairy will be ours for the night
