Ghost Hunt Newcastle Castle Keep

Join Haunted Evenings as we explore Newcastle’s oldest landmark after-dark. Will you be the next visitor to the Castles’ Keep to experience the strange hauntings?! A small child is reputed to haunt the area and those brave enough to spend the night have heard growling sounds, have witnessed stones being thrown and numerous black shapes have been captured and seen over the years. What will you experience on your Haunted Evening at The Castle Keep, Newcastle?

 History of Newcastle Castle Keep

The Castle’s Keep in Newcastle is a Grade I listed building dating back to 1172, built on the site of the earlier Castle which gave the City its name. During the 16th to 18th Century the Keep was used as a prison until the building came into disrepair.  The Keep was restored in the early 19th Century and by the 1850’s, much of the surrounding area was altered to allow the arrival of the railway system, constructed through the grounds of the Castle. The Keep and Gatehouse are the only surviving buildings from the original fortification and you will have full access to the Keep with its many rooms to split off into and investigate….

Kreepy Keep!

Your overnight ghost hunt will allow you access around this unique location after dark. We’ll be splitting you off into small groups to see what you can unearth in the King’s Chamber, Great Hall, Queens Chamber and condemned mans cell. Will you experience the many encounters of the paranormal that those other visitors before you have experienced?  All guests will have the chance at traditional style vigils as well as a more “Ghost Adventures” style ghost hunting experience with an abundance of equipment.
