History of Margam Castle
Margam Castle in Port Talbot, Wales is a terrifying, haunted and chilling location. The castle is believed to be the home to an angry spirit of a Game Keeper who is believed to have been murdered by a poacher in 1898, he is said to be the main haunt of the castle and is responsible for throwing objects around. The castle houses many ghosts and has been at the centre of numerous amounts of paranormal activity, the sound of children's laughter has been heard, dark shadows have been seen, strange light anomalies, loud footsteps on the main staircase and extreme temperature drops, the list is endless!
Margam Castle is a spectacular Tudor Gothic Mansion and is said to be one of the most haunted buildings in Wales. The Castle was built between 1830 and 1840 and is a listed Grade I building of exceptional quality, with some spectacular features such as its long stunning staircase.
The Margam estate had been in Thomas Mansel Talbot's family since 1536; however Thomas Mansel Talbot had demolished the original mansion house in 1787 to replace it with the magnificent Orangery that can be seen in the gardens today. Proud of this ancient family lineage Christopher Rice Mansel Talbot had always been attracted to romantic Margam. He wished to rebuild a suitable country residence which would complement Margam's illustrious history.
The site was deliberately chosen for its historic associations and picturesque position at the foot of a wooded historic hill, Mynydd-y-Castell, itself the site of Margam's earliest habitation, with the ruins of the Cistercian Abbey and the eighteenth century Orangery visible to the West. The prospect of the house, rising above the Orangery and monastic remains to the west is unique in Wales.
Margam Castle's own Security Guards have reported many strange experiences such as running footsteps, cries and the laughter of Children even when the building has been reported to have been empty.
One not to be missed!

What Happens at the Event
Our events are always 100% investigation and vigil events, we won't waste time by taking you on a history tour of the venue.
We will not usually talk about the history of the building unless people ask us to do so.
We don't hold workshops or briefing on equipment usage. Any equipment that you will be using throughout the event will be explained at the start of each session by our team leaders.
For the first few hours (usually 1 hour per session) you will be in a group and you will spend time with our Mediums doing séances, where they will try to get the active spirit to move you in some way (this is not designed to scare you) and with our paranormal investigators doing experiments, table tilting, glass divination, Ouija boards, EVP (Electronic Voice Phenomena a.k.a. ghost voice) experiments and other equipment experiments using the latest ghost hunting equipment.
After these controlled sessions you will have the opportunity to venture off on your own or in small groups to explore the venue or to hold lone vigils or re-visiting an activity that you enjoyed in our controlled sessions. In this part of the night you can use our ghost hunting equipment to do your own ghost hunt. You may take photos/videos with your own cameras throughout our ghost hunts. You may also use any of your own ghost hunting equipment during our controlled sessions.
