Ghost Hunts at Margam Castle

Welcome to Margam Castle – the home of a violent poltergeist and some of the most compelling evidence of the paranormal ever experienced!

The number of paranormal reports and their frequency has given this impressive Gothic castle the reputation of being one of the most haunted places in the UK.

This foreboding building is a frightening prospect during the day. At night it’s something else entirely. The creepiness of this castle hits you as soon as you step inside. The vastness of this space leaves you feeling vulnerable and unsure of what may be lurking within.

A ghost hunt at this location is certainly not for the faint of heart.

The sheer number of reports here is astounding, with the most amazing poltergeist activity and full-bodied apparitions of children, to name just a few of the occurrences.

Ghosts of Margam Castle

Robert Scott

The most prominent of all the reports is the ghost of Robert Scott, a gamekeeper at the house for many years. He can be seen ascending the main staircase and is believed to be responsible for most of the poltergeist activity.

If you try and communicate with him, he has been known to throw stones at and around you. Robert gives off a sense of anger and torment when he’s felt. This can be related to his unjust murder by a poacher’s gun.

Victorian Children

The sound of children playing and giggling has often been reported throughout the corridors and the large rooms of the castle. These children have also been seen constantly darting in and out of rooms in the corner of your eye. Reports say they are always seen wearing Victorian dresses. Another report thought to be the children is that of mischievously moving objects from one area of the castle to another.

Other Reports

  • Night security has often reported hearing heavy running footsteps behind them and disembodied voices chattering away. Upon thorough inspection, no explanation has ever been found.
  • Gamekeepers and garden staff have reported seeing a dark figure whilst tending the vast castle grounds.
  • The cavalier in the Tapestry has been known to come in visitation and is believed to move chairs.
  • Conversations on EMF have been picked up and have revealed direct responses to questions being asked.

Spots will fill up quickly for this one, so hurry and book now!

Margam Castle History

Margam Castle History

Margam Castle in Talbot, Wales, is a site that’s been inhabited for over 4000 years. It was an abbey during the 11th Century. However, the Gothic-styled castle you see today was built as a country house during the 19th Century. Christopher Rice Mansel Talbot commissioned the build, which took from 1830 to 1840 to complete.

The Talbots lived here until 1941, when it was sold to David Evans-Bevan, who subsequently found it too large to live in and moved out, hoping to find a public organisation to take over the castle. He failed to find a buyer, and it fell into disrepair. The local authority owned the castle for a time, but it was not open to the public. Then in 1977, a fire ravaged the majority of the building, and it was only after this that restoration work finally began in earnest.

Today, Margam Castle is a Grade I listed building and is under the ownership of the Neath Port Talbot Council.

What to Bring

What to Bring

You’re welcome to bring your own equipment, though we will be providing paranormal equipment to use.

The investigation will be in darkness so please bring a torch with you.

Although snacks and drinks are provided, you’re welcome to bring your own. There are also facilities to make both hot and cold drinks, which are provided also.

And of course, bring your phone/camera with you, the more pictures we have the better chance we have of capturing something!

Other than that, just yourself and an open mind!

What to Expect

What to Expect

On your ghost hunt with Haunted Rooms, you will have full exclusive access to the most haunted areas of this historic location. Together with our friendly team of investigators, you will join others on structured vigils, where you’ll have the chance to use some paranormal equipment and join in on group vigils such as Ouija board sessions, and seance.

Our event starts at 8.00 pm but you can arrive at the earliest 7.45 pm. Structured investigations will end around 12-1 am, at which point you will have the opportunity to investigate this location on your own using the techniques and information you have been provided with.

You will have the chance to look around the building before the event to familiarise yourself with its layout. Shortly before the event kicks off, we’ll run you through a quick induction and safety briefing, followed by a short talk and introduction from our team. You’ll then split into smaller groups with your family and/or friends if you’ve come together, and we’ll begin our vigils for the night!

If you have your own paranormal equipment we encourage you to bring it, if not we can provide them free of charge. Snacks, refreshments, and treats will be provided at intervals throughout the night, and we’ll have facilities to make hot and cold drinks too.

We do endeavour to have mediums and sensitives with us for every event, although circumstances out of our control can sometimes prevent this. Anybody that has sensitive abilities we encourage you to come forward, as it only increases the energy and enjoyment for all in attendance.

To get the most from the evening we encourage you to try your hand at as many things as you can, and if you’re feeling particularly brave you should give a lone vigil a try, as well as joining in with our table tipping experiments as we try to commune with the spirits and ghosts of the building.

Please dress weather appropriately, with extra layers of clothing if it’s cold, plus comfortable shoes and a torch if you need one.
