Description

It could easily be said that in the UK we are spoilt for choice when it comes to atmospheric historic buildings and certainly Britain's many castles are liberally scattered all over the country. The ninety or so castles selected in this book have been chosen for their prevalence of spectral tales and the legendary events associated with them: whether grisly executions or bloody battles, their names have become synonymous with their history. The object of this guidebook is to locate and describe the haunted castles and their ghostly inhabitants. Most of the castles are open to the public and detailed visiting times are provided; for the few strictly private castles, advice is given as to locations from which they are clearly visible. With maps and photographs, and detailed research revealing where supernatural legends associated with castles mirror historical events, this book offers far more than just a collection of spooky tales.
