Dudley Castle Ghost Hunt & Supper
Join Haunted Happenings for an overnight ghost hunt at Dudley Castle in the West Midlands and see for yourself how terrifying this location truly is. Tables have been forcibly pushed, people grabbed by unseen hands and even extreme Poltergeist activity which saw a torch thrown from a table in the centre of a room, several feet away from the group. Few people can spend more than a moment or two alone in the infamous Chequer Room without fleeing in terror from the sinister presence that lurks within the corners here - can you?

Dudley Castle Ghost Hunt & Supper - Friday 20th September 2013
If any guest is a vegetarian, vegan or has any special dietary requirements you must let us know at least 2 weeks prior to the event date so that we can ensure that your needs are accommodated.
Dudley Castle in the West Midlands has a long history of hauntings and there are many ghosts and stories associated with the Castle. There have been reports of paranormal activity here for hundreds of years from staff and visitors alike and you are invited to spend the night within its walls to discover for yourself the ghosts and spirits that reside here.
This event will begin with a delicious 2 course meal at The Fellows Pub (choice of menu), before the lights are switched off and the ghost hunt begins.
Originally built around 1071 and recorded in the Domesday Book of 1086, the Castle has passed through the hands of many families and also suffered greatly as the result of many battles. John Dudley (the man executed by Mary I for plotting to bring Lady Jane Grey to the Throne in her place) was present here in 1536 during the height of his power and the Castle eventually suffered its last tragic blow during the Civil War when the Royalist Soldiers were defeated by Cromwell and the Castle was ‘slighted’. Much bloodshed and misery has occurred on this land and there are now many ghost stories associated with Dudley Castle which seem reluctant to go away.
The most famous haunting is that of The Grey Lady who is often seen by staff and visitors alike walking the grounds of the Castle, and people have also reported hearing a cat Meaowing up on the Keep from where it is believed a local witch and her cat were thrown to their deaths below. Extreme drops in temperature, a menacing male spirit and even Poltergeist activity have all been encountered here at Dudley Castle and people have reported hearing drumming from the Castle Keep which is thought to be associated with a young Drummer Boy killed by a single bullet during the Civil War.
