DAY 3: TRIP TO OXFORD
Take your time to look round the many colleges of the old university city, stroll along the banks of the river Thames, (here called the Isis) particularly the lower walks through Christ Church Meadow. The city of Oxford is host to one of the World’s most famous Universities, since its very inception. Oxford is a wonderful place to ramble: the oldest colleges date back to almost 750 years ago, and little has changed inside their hallowed walls ever since. Oxford has a long industrial past and was the birth place of the Morris motor car as well as Mensa.
Back on spooky subjects, we will stay for a night for the Ghost Hunting at the Oxford Castle Unlocked, for a whole night until sunrise.
Oxford Castle Unlocked is an interesting piece of insight into the history of Oxford, that finds its origins in building that has existed since before the Norman Conquest. It’s an amazing slice of the most classical British History. Parts of the original castle can still be found at St. Georges Tower, which was build by the Anglo-Saxons. Visitors can climb up the narrow staircase to the very top to be met by an astonishing 360 degree view of Oxford and its surrounding area. This will be your chance to experience the dark atmosphere of a shivering 900 year old underground Crypt, marvelling at the Mound of the 11th century bailey castle . It’ll also be possible to experience the overnight ghost hunt.
You can discover the truth behind the Oxford Castle (the Black Assize of 1577), where several hundreds of people died within 5 weeks, the tremendous sufferings endured by the prisoners as well as the great escapes.
The castle has been exposed to numerous wars over the years. It was witness to the Tudor period, which was fraught with its own battles, as well as to the British Civil Wars and throughout the dissolution of the monasteries.
There have been many reports of paranormal activity at the Oxford Castle. The Murderer Mary Blandy was sentenced to death by hanging in 1752, and her wraith has been seen several times walking in the Castle. There were also poltergeist activities and a priest was called to conduct the exorcism. The Castle has been used as a film set. During the filming several staff members heard gut wrenching shouts and screams echoing around the main buildings. There were several unexplained physical damage cases to various items stored at the prison. Security guards during their rounds at night witnessed the most terrifying apparition. It was spotted by one guard and his dog on the nightly patrol. The dog stopped and growled while its master saw two black figures in front of him, later on the dog died of heart failure.
The Oxford Castle – a grim and bloody place of execution for four hundred years.
DAY 4: CONTINUATION TO OXFORD
Go through the city centre on the way to the villages and market towns, built of the honey coloured stone that characterises the region. Following the meandering of the River Evenlode, reach Charlbury and make our way up to Stow on the Wold, popular tourist town.

At 20:00 or during the day we will join a Canterbury Ghost Tour to discover some horrifying tales that will haunt your dreams and raise the hair on the back of your head. A 90 minute tour of Canterbury’s dark side, graciously blending of history, humour and horror. Kent’s Premier Award winning Ghost Hunter is John Hippisley, who saw his first ghost when he was 13 years old at school in near by Goudhurst. After 30 years of research, Canterbury was the ideal location to conduct ghost tours with its rich historical background which can be traced back to pre-Roman times, and the infamous murder of Thomas Becket on 29th of December 1170. This tour possesses history and humour alike, and gives you an insight into what has made Canterbury such a popular destination for over a thousand years. It will give an insightful look at the hidden history of Canterbury’s city centre, Butchery Lane, and the duel of William Corkine and Christopher Marlowe.
We will have a dinner at The Old Brewery Tavern in Kent.
DAY 6: TORMENT OF
With a long history of torture and suffering, the castle and the town of Tonbridge is known to be ridden with paranormal activity. Most recently, the ghost of Elizabeth Lewis is reported to be haunting the castle grounds. In 1982 she lost her dog, which fell down a deep hole in the castle ground whilst chasing a butterfly. Elizabeth fell in the hole as well, and despite her screaming, nobody heard her distress calls. A few days later she met her sorrowful end.
DAY 7: LEEDS AND LEEDS CASTLE
Deep into a mesmerising fable setting, no wonder it’s the loveliest castle in the world. The Leeds Castle , serenely raising atop of its island in the middle of a lake where black swans glide, was made for romance, the favourite retreat of Queens of England, including Eleanor of Castile, wife of Edward I. The breathtaking scenario is completed by an aviary inhabited by thousands of parakeets and cockatoos, and a labyrinth connected to an underground grotto.
Leeds Thackray Medical Museum. In 1838 many people died of epidemics of typhus. The medical museum is a former workhouse, now perpetual home to many spirits forever hovering its corridors. Among those is said to be the “Yorkshire Witch”.
