Ghost Hunts - first Saturday of each month

Real life ghost encounters by visitors to Gwrych Castle are commonplace, but are you brave enough to join them? If you have the guts to spend the night in a haunted castle, Gwrych never fails to deliver with lots of paranormal activity, and our in-house team will take you where the haunting is happening.

You will take part in vigils around the grounds of the castle, and in the newly restored sections of the main building. Since the Trust purchased the castle, we have opened up the Chapel, Bakehouse, Coachhouse and Countess’s Tower. The Countess’s Tower is one of the most paranormally active areas in the castle, and is situated within the gardens which are said to be haunted by the Countess herself. Venture from the gardens up the stone Nant-y-Bella steps – all fifty one of them, so do be careful in the dark – and you will find yourself at the main building, where the family and the household staff lived. Within the Chapel, Bakehouse and Coachhouse, some people have experienced the presence of the old game keeper, a distressed dairy maid, and other household staff. However, you may well prefer them over an encounter with the dark spirit of the Countess’s tyrannical husband, the Earl of Dundonald, who is said to still stalk the castle he stole from her after her death…

Mother's Day Cream Tea - 31st March 2019

Since the 1800’s when Anna, Duchess of Bedford would soon become hungry, afternoon tea became a fashionable social event. During the 1800’s, aristocratic woman would change into long gowns, gloves and hats for their afternoon tea and it became a great social event.

The Chapel at Gwrych Castle played host to such events during the time of the Countess of Dundonald – now is your chance to relive such an occasion.
