Castell Coch (Red Castle). Tongwynlais, Cardiff, Wales.

Haunted Evenings will have exclusive access to this fantastic 18th Century Cardiff Castle for the night and are looking for brave guests to join us for the evening to investigate it’s many rooms, including it’s own dungeon and eerie courtyard. Many visitors have experienced strange goings on in the Great Hall and Lady’s bedroom, is this the presence of the alledged Grey Lady? Or are the spirits that are reported here from an era before the current Castle was built?. Dare to join the team for an intense overnight investigation at one of Wales finest paranormal hotspots?!

 History of Castell Coch

Delve into the history of Castell Coch and it becomes very clear as to why this location is a ghost hunters dream. The land on which this majestic Red Castle sits has been used since as early as the 9th Century as a form of defense by the Normans. The earth motte remains of the Norman fortification were used as the foundations for a stone castle which was constructed throughout the mid 11th Century and is believed to have been used until the early 1300’s before its demise. The ruins remained dormant until 1848 when the new owner of the land, the 3rd Marquess of Bute, plotted a lavish plan to build an occasional retreat from his already extravagant Cardiff Castle. Architect William Burgess was employed to create the masterpiece we see today – Castell Coch.  Despite it’s opulent decor and rich furnishings, Castell Coch was rarely used and in 1950, his grandson who inherited the Castle, gave control of the estate over to the Welsh Heritage Agency.

Inside Castell Coch

Inside Castell Coch

Your overnight ghost hunt at Castell Coch will see you heading off in small groups  in all directions using an array of different techniques in order to establish who still haunts here. There are many ghost stories attached to this Victorian Castle, one being the belief that the Castle is haunted by a grey lady, another by a Cavalier. Whoever haunts here, it is evident that some areas leave many with a sense of unease, mainly the dark confined space of the castle dungeons. Many have reported other areas that, whilst “feel” quite pleasant, have proven to be highly active. Castle Coch only allows a limited amount of investigations per year and Haunted Evenings are privileged to gain access. What will you experience overnight in one of South Wales most haunted buildings?!
