Legend has it that criminals were hanged from the battlements of this imposing castle. Many ghosts have been reported at St Briavels over the years. One of the most prolific is the ghost of a crying child that is often heard in the Solar Room. Most terrifyingly of all, during recent ceiling repairs in the castle, a wrapped corpse of a baby fell from the rafters – which possibly explains the crying baby. Eek! There's plenty of paranormal activity reported in other areas of the castle too. The spooky atmosphere in the Oubliette room has lead to guests running from the castle in the middle of the night. If all that hasn't got your spine tingling, the walls of the castle's jail are adorned with graffiti from doomed souls waiting to meeting their deaths.
