"Several ghosts are known to wander the castle’s timeworn interior. The most famous is that of the “Radiant Boy”, a childish wraith that is seen in the castle’s Pink Room, and whose heart rendering cries of either fear or pain echo through the corridors upon the stroke of midnight. In the past, cries always seemed to emanate from a spot near where a passage is cut though the 10-feet thick wall into the adjoining tower. As they faded away, a bright halo of light would appear, and the figure of a young boy, dressed in blue, would approach those sleeping in the room.

Later, the bones of a child, surrounded by decaying fragments of blue cloth, were found behind the wall. They were given a Christian burial, and thereafter the “Radiant Boy” was seen no more – until, that is, Sir Humphrey began letting the room. Some guests complain of a blue flash that shoots out of the wall in the dead of night. Although they attribute it to an electrical fault, Sir Humphrey is quick to point out that there is no electrical wiring in that particular section of the wall.

Another unquiet soul to stalk the castle is the spirit of Lady Berkeley, wife of Lord Grey, whose husband ran off with her own sister, Lady Henrietta. Lady Berkeley was left abandoned at the castle, with only her baby daughter for company. The rustle of her dress is sometimes heard as her invisible revenant sweeps along the rambling corridors searching for her husband and leaving a cold chill, not to mention unsettled witnesses, in her ghostly wake. "

This ghost story was taken from the book "Haunted Castles of Britain and Ireland" by Richard Jones. We would like to thank Richard for graciously allowing us to use his text on Great-Castles.com for some of the ghost stories presented on this site. You can find other stories by Mr. Jones on his web site, Haunted Britain, or you can buy a copy of his fantastic book, which contains 100 castle ghost stories. To order a book directly from Richard himself, click the image of the book to the left.

About the book: Region by region, ghost-seeker Richard Jones reveals, explains and delights in the tales of tortured phantoms eager to restage their dark and turbulent pasts. The cast of characters ranges from ghostly queens that hurl themselves from the ramparts to malevolent monks that wander the corridors. This authoritative and accessible guide to haunted sites is illustrated throughout and includes extracts from original documents.

now this place is haunted without any doubt, ive had almost all the senses displayed to me here,
This 12th century stronghold, just twenty minutes from the Seaside and the home of Sir Humphry Wakefield and his family, became 'base-camp' for the 1298 conquering attack on William Wallace by “Hammer of the Scots”, King Edward 1st.  Wallace had raided the previous year, burning the women and children to death in the local abbey.  The Castle was given permission to add battlements by King Edward III in 1344 (See the actual License in the Castle).  The Elizabethans added 'Long Galleries' and Capability Brown designed the park in 1752.  The glorious Italian garden was laid out in the 19th century by Sir Jeffrey Wyatville, fresh from his royal triumphs at Windsor Castle.  Royal visits from 1200s to this century, and winner of many architectural awards. situated onthe breathtaking Northumbrian countryside, located 10 miles from the coast and around 70 miles from both Newcastle and Edinburgh.,
GhostsThe Blue boy, poor, wandering, Lady Mary, a tortured child, the Royal procession and so many other famous stories.  Chillingham retains them all because the Castle stays calm and unaltered ever since ancient battling days.  With all its beauty and calm, Chillingham has many ghosts….  Of course it has.  Quite apart from Lady Mary and her friends, the Castle family lived exciting and romantic lives, they served Kings, but then, as William Shakespeare notes, they rebelled, too.  With a record eighteen Knights of the Garter, the family also had no less that eight famous, well recorded, executions.  Some were hanged, drawn and quartered.  While alive, they were cut down from the Gallows, to have their entrails removed.  Still living, the failing body was cut into quarters.  The head was displayed on city gates, as a warning. Other members of the family, more fortunate, simply had their heads chopped off
 not to far from Alnwick Castle, so a return visit is certain,
