Reported Ghosts

Dudley Castle, regarded as one of the most haunted castles in the UK, was first visited in 1870 by Harry Bentham, a collector of ghost stories. It is said that during his visit, he encountered two elderly people in 17th or 18th century clothes, arm-in-arm and with a crooked walking stick and tall hat, who then vanished. Other reports include those from staff working in the castle’s undercroft who claim to have heard strange moans, icy blasts of air and doors opening and closing on their own.

Furthermore, a hooded figure has been spotted in the castle grounds and a monk is said to appear in the chapel above the undercroft. Many believe the stone coffin in the undercroft held the body of Lord John Somery and that people have reported seeing legs beside it, as well as having the sensation of being tugged or prodded. In addition, people have also reported hearing voices, leading some to wonder if conversations from the past are still being heard.

Lastly, a local legend of an old witch committing suicide from the battlements by jumping from them is also present in the castle. She is said to wear sackcloth and a grey shawl with her feet wrapped in sacking. On top of this, another well-known apparition, The Grey Lady, believed to be the spirit of Dorothy Beaumont, a woman who passed away in the castle during a siege by Parliamentary forces, is often spotted in the castle. Finally, a little Civil War drummer boy, killed by a single musket bullet in the 17th century, has been heard banging his drum, bringing a haunting and unfortunate ambiance to the area. Beware – it is said to be bad luck to come across him.

Venue History

Dudley Castle has an impressive history that can be traced back to shortly after the Norman Conquest in 1066 when it was first built with wood. It was eventually rebuilt with stone in order to make it stronger, and proved its worth during a siege in 1153 led by King Stephen. However, after Gervase Paganel took part in a failed rebellion against King Henry II in 1173, the castle was demolished on the King’s orders.

Rebuilt in the late 13th century, Dudley Castle featured a stunning keep, a main gate, a chapel and a great hall. Numerous high-profile visitors have come to see the castle, including the notorious Queen Elizabeth I.
