Chillingham Castle is regarded as one of the most haunted places in the UK, it has a rich history of disturbing events and battles fought in and around the location of the castle. The location of this castle is why it is thought of been so haunted, it lies in between England and Scotland. It was an English stronghold, yet was constantly besieged by the Scots, it was so heavily fortified that in some areas the fortifications were 12 feet thick. It housed both of the leaders, Edward Longshanks and the legendary William Wallace. In 1344 a grant was accepted to turn Chillingham Castle into a fully fortified castle with battlements and much more making it one of the most fortified castles in England.

Media

Chillingham Castle is at a near celebrity status amongst ghost hunters in the UK, it has been the focus of many shows some of which are, Most Haunted, I'm Famous and Frightened, Scariest Places On Earth, Holiday Showdown and Alan Robson's Nightowls, but most recently, ghost hunters international.

Ghosts

The Blue Boy - It was not just placed in these famous shows, it has a rich history of ghosts, arguably the most famous is the 'Blue Boy' who is said to haunt the Pink Room. Guests supposedly reported seeing blue flashes and a blue "halo" of light above their beds after a loud wail, but these reportings stopped, right after the body of a young boy was found bricked within a 10 foot thick wall.

Lady grey - This ghost has been 'Authenticated' by many ghost hunters. The ghost is thought to be Lady Mary Berkeley, wife of Ford, Lord Grey of Wark and Chillingham and Earl of Tankerville, still looking for her errant husband. But unfortunantly for Lady Grey her husband ran off with her own sister, Lady henrietta. There is also claims of her ghost stepping out of her potrait and wandering the castle late at night in search of her errant husband.

The White Pantry Ghost - This ghost is seen to be a frail white figure. One night the footman had turned in when he was accosted by a lady in white, very pale, who asked him for water. Thinking for the moment it was one of the visitors he turned away to obey her behest, when he suddenly remembered that he was locked in and that no visitor could possibly have entered. On turning round he found the figure had vanished.

Voices in the Library - In the Library, underneath the upper chamber, the voices of two men are often heard talking, but it is not possible to follow what they say and they seem to cease at once if one stops reading or writing to listen to their discussion. It disturbs no one and many have heard it but none has accounted for the fact.
