Details

The owner of Appleby Castle is allowing paranormal investigations into the 900 year old castle which includes the 13th century round tower, dungeon, 12th century basement at Appleby Castle and the 11th century Keep.
Much activity has been found inside this Norman castle which is one of only a few in England to have been lived in continuously since its construction.
You have the option to purchase tickets for the evening paranormal investigations starting at 9.30pm or to stay at the castle over the weekend. People who wish to stay should book a room directly. Appleby Castle will then contact you regarding the paranormal weekend.

Notes

Unfortunately Appleby Castle is a Grade I listed building and the keep is an ancient monument. For this reason we are unable to erect wheel chair access ramps, although we are looking into a removable ramp. We are unable to offer disabled access throughout the castle.
