About Newcastle Castle


Fans of the paranormal and horror enthusiasts will need to clear their diaries on Friday 12th July as Newcastle Castle is leaving the doors open late for their launch night of Ghost Fest. This is guaranteed to be an unforgettable evening that will unnerve the bravest of ghost hunters.

Ghost Fest tickets are limited and those who are lucky enough to snap them up will begin their evening in the Great Hall of the Castle Keep with a special screening of House on Haunted Hill (1959) starring Vincent Price. Described as "Seven people trapped in the most terrifying house in the world" this horror classic can be enjoyed before the real ghost hunting begins.

As it begins to get dark, ticket holders are split into smaller groups for a 4-hour long paranormal investigation of the Castle Keep with Spiritus Paranormal. With years of experience and having conducted more than a hundred paranormal investigations, the Spiritus Paranormal team will allow guests a chance to use the equipment and personally take part in the investigation.


Spiritus Paranormal have had the pleasure of previously working with Most Haunted's Barry John and are keen investigators at the Castle Keep. For the very brave, they are also in possession of a Ouija board.

Built by Henry II between 1172 and 1177, Castle Keep is well-known for being very active as unexplained mists, dark shadows, and orbs have been captured on camera. Those who have visited the castle witnessed the chanting of the monks coming from the Queens Chamber and the ghost of the “Poppy Girl” who was beaten to death by male prisoners in the dungeon below.

Tickets are available for £48 per person.
