Arundel Castle, Sussex in England is said to be a pretty active place, and even the first Earl of Arundel is said to remain there. The Earl originally built the castle and is said to still haunt the keep.

Another spirit there seems to have a tragic history, a woman struck with grief following a tragic love affair threw herself from one of the towers. Traditionally seen in white the young lady appears to re-enact the death, suggesting that perhaps she is more of a playback/residual haunt that occur on moonlit nights.

“Blue Man” also gets a mention here, he is seen in the library and has been reported since 1630’s. It is possible he is a cavalier due to the time period. Another curious spirit that is mentioned is a white owl-like bird, it is also considered to be some form of death omen for any Castle resident.

And where would any good castle in England be without some mention of a terrible dark affair? I bring you a servant that was beaten to death who now haunts the kitchen. He has been seen scrubbing pots and pants and in the area a footman back in 1958 spotted someone near the servants quarters after being assured he was alone, he followed the spectre to find that it disappeared when he got close.

Planning a trip over? Let me know if you ever do and what you see!
