Reported Ghosts

With its long and turbulent past it’s no surprise that Warwick Castle has given rise to many ghost stories and legends over the years.
The most well-known story is that of Sir Fulke Greville who owned the castle from 1604 until his death in 1628. He was violently murdered by one of his servants, stabbed in a fit of rage after realising what would be left to him in the will. Although the stab wound did not lead to immediate death, Fulke writhed in pain for many months until succumbing to infection. He has been sighted on many occasions at the Watergate Tower which he occupied in life, so much so that the tower has been nicknamed “Ghost Tower”. Cried of anguish have also been heard coming from the tower.
From the depths of the castle, the dungeons are haunted by many tortured souls who met their demise whilst imprisoned there. There is also said to be a dark and sinister presence, thought to be that of a former gaoler, who has been sighted on occasion behind a gate in the dungeon. This menacing spirit is responsible for poltergeist activity, growls, scratches and appearing as a shadow figure. Will you be brave enough to investigate this daunting area of Warwick Castle?

Cries of a mother and teenage girl have been heard, who are rumoured to be entombed behind a wall. Sightings of a lady, gliding along the corridors of Warwick Castle, thought to be that of France Greville who passed away in the castle in 1938. Phantom footsteps of soldiers, sightings of a mysterious face through a window, apparitions and shadow figures.

During work on a new tourist attraction at the castle, ghostly activity caused a builder to flee the site in terror. Whilst he was clearing the site for the new dungeon, he started noticing the smell of lavender, then later in the day saw a tall, slim man walking out of the doorway. Thinking it was his imagination he asked other workers if they had seen anything, but nobody had. He was left petrified when he saw the figure again and left in a hurry.

Venue History

Warwick Castle was built by William the Conqueror in 1068. It was a wooden motte-and -bailey castle which was then rebuilt in stone during the 12th century. Up until the 17th century it was used as a stronghold then granted to Sir Fulke Greville in 1604. The Greville family owned the castle until 1978 when it was bought by the Tussauds group, now known as Merlin Entertainments.
