That's why this time a year I trawl the internet searching for something Halloweeny to do that also caters to adults. Then I stumbled upon a spooky Haunted Castle event in Dover the week around Halloween. I rounded up some friends and off we went. The castle that sits atop the white cliffs of Dover is supposedly chock full of ghostly apparitions of and spirits of dead people who just can’t seem to make it to the other side. Actors dressed up as ghouls and witches and the likes vividly recount the many stories of characters that have been haunting the castle for ages,reenacting them with a high goosebump producing factor.There is the story of the boy who was buried alive behind a wall, the tale of the sobbing woman in the red dress and the account of the headless drummer boy. I will not go into too many details as it might spoil the thrill, but it's all incredibly eerie.
In all the Haunted Castle event in Dover is absolutely a great day out for children as well as adults. No explanation required.
