Cardiff residents and tourists are in the spooky spirit this winter as ghost walks sell out at the city’s most haunted places.

Ghost walks have been a hit with tourists this winter as tickets have sold out for many of Cardiff’s most haunted locations such as St Fagan’s and Cardiff Castle.

The boo-m can be attributed to the rising interest in Wales’ most haunted city according to the Paranormal Database.

“The excitement and the thrill of a ghost hunt is what brings people first off,” noted Wesley McDermott of Haunted Rooms, “The intrigue and different locations bring them back for more.”

Tickets for some tours range from £11.50 for an 85-minute tour to £15.00 for a full two-hour tour and locations range around the city from Cardiff’s famous castle to the National Museum.

To find the source of the paranormal in Cardiff you need to delve into the city’s haunted history which makes for macabre reading.

The Rummer Tavern is home to the notorious “Judge” ghost.

The city has played host to numerous paranormal sightings throughout history with the paranormal database collecting numerous incidents of recorded activity in the area.

Llandough Hospital is thought to be one of the city’s most haunted places as the ghost of a nurse who claimed to have seen her own dead body lying on a bed a week before she died of typhoid fever is said to haunt the hospital’s halls.

One of Haunted History’s most popular ghost walks is Castle Coch in Tongwynlais.

The castle is thought to be home to the White Lady, the ghost of a woman said to have died of a broken heart after her son drowned in a local pond.

With Halloween over and the darkness coming earlier each night it’s easy to see why intrigue in Cardiff’s haunted history is on the rise.
