History of Margam Castle
Margam Castle situated near Port Talbot, is a Grade I listed Gothic Tudor Mansion built in 1830. Until 1942 the Castle remained within the Talbot family estate before exchanging hands to Sir David Evans Bevan. In 1974 it was acquired by the County Council when it was in a ruinous state. 3 years later it experienced a fire which gutted the interior, an ambitious restoration was embarked on and continues today.
Hauntings at Margam Castle
The site of Margam Castle has been inhabited for over 4000 years so it’s without question a location full of historical layers. Reports of heavy footsteps have been heard by security team members, gamekeepers and garden staff have reported seeing a dark figure in the castle grounds. The sound of children have often been reported throughout the corridors, as well as been seen wearing Victorian dress. The most prominent reporting is from that of Robert Scott, he is believed as being responsible for the poltergeist activity experienced at the Castle, was he responsible for the chair that moved on our last visit and for a piece of our equipment that was moved in the library?!
Are you brave enough?!

Take part in some intriguing ghost hunting experiments new and old, and for the brave, the chance to take off some equipment and conduct your own experiments.

GHOST HUNT MARGAM CASTLE REVIEW : Last investigated 17.02.18
Saturday nights event (17th February 2018) was spent over at Margam Castle. Guests were split into 3 groups and took part in 4 different types of experiments. Throughout the night, guests experienced unusually chilling cold spots that came and went at times we were also getting heightened activity. Knocks and bangs were heard in the library area, with everyone on site accounted for. Also in the rear library, one of our K2’s was found over a metre away from where it was set up, face down, during a Human Pendulum vigil being conducted at the other end of the room.
On the upper floor of Margam Castle, in the old nursery, equipment triggered and a human pendulum suggested the presence of a female servant. Children were sensed in a further vigil in that area too with EVP’s from a spirit, suggesting it was (the children’s) bedtime!
Many personal experiences occurred for guests, mainly on the Ouija board, which was a pleasure to witness.
So many things occurred over the weekend and these mentioned above, were just some of those moments!
* Welcome briefing with complimentary tea, coffee, hot chocolate and soft drinks.
*Walk round of the location with the lights on, pointing out places of interest.
*Guests will then be split into smaller groups to carry out small vigils
*Handheld Equipment Vigil. Guests will investigate an area using all the latest paranormal handheld equipment. We will show you how to use all the devices, including K2′s, Mel Meters, Ghost Meters and our thermal imaging cameras. We will also see what we capture using voice and video recorders.
* Trigger Object Vigil. Stay close to our trigger objects to see who, from the spirit world, is intrigued by our objects!, many with built in devices that will literally trigger if interacted with by spirits including Rempods. Other devices will be available for guests to use during the session.
* Voice Vigil. Guests will move on to another area and will have a go at using listening devices to see what strange noises and hopefully voices we can capture. Guests will have the chance to use digital voice recorders and use hearing enhancers. We will carry out EVP experiments and encourage all guests to have a go at capturing their own evidence.
*Traditional Vigil. A chance for guests to choose from trying out Glass Divination experiments such as the Ouija Board, or have a go at being part of a Human Pendulum or Table Tipping experiment. On top of all that, we can add some modern twists to these experiments.
* Lone Vigils. Guests brave enough will be given time to re-visit areas of the location unguided. Armed with walkie talkie contact with the team, guests can take any available equipment and conduct their own vigils.
*Group Vigil. Guests wanting to stay close to the team, will finish off the night carrying out a final vigil in the most active part of the location, using the technique that had the best response.
*Complimentary tea, coffee, soft drinks and snacks will be available throughout the event.
