Haunted Castle

Muncaster is one of Britain's most haunted castles.

Paranormal researchers often come to the Castle to seek rational explanations of the strange happenings, without success.

Many tales revolve around Tom Fool, a powerful force at Muncaster.

Tom is rarely seen, but his spirit continues to play tricks on people at Muncaster.

Hauntings often occur in The Tapestry Room. Visitors complain of the disturbed nights, hear footsteps outside the the room, see the door handle turning, and the door opening although nobody is there. A child is frequently heard crying towards the window end of the room, and sometimes a lady heard singing, comforting a sick child. Visitors have also felt cold in the room for no apparent reason.

Other stories concern the 'Muncaster Boggle' or White Lady who haunts the gardens and roadways around Muncaster. She is supposedly the ghost of Mary Bragg, a young girl murdered in the early 1800s on the road near the Main Gate.
