Add a thrilling new dimension to your sight-seeing as you explore some of Britain's most impressive buildings, and experience the chill of an encounter with the paranormal. Author Richard Jones takes you to 100 castles from the British Isles, from romantic ruins on sea-lashed headlands to splendid castles that have been transformed into luxury hotels. He is an informed and entertaining guide who is as well versed in the history of the castles as in the strange sad or sinister tales that enshroud them. But be prepared to feel the icy breath of a long-dead child upon your neck, to meet an ethereal maiden with no hands, or to hear the phantom music and laughter from an ill-fated feast! This book provides all the information you need to plan a haunted-history theme tour. It explores the country region by region , maps pinpoint the location of each castle, and symbols show which castles offer accommodations & tours. And if you want the full outwardly experience, there are tips on the best times and conditions for sightings, and reports on recent encounters. Whether you actually visit the castles, or read this book from the comfort and safety of your home, you will be transported back to some of the bloodiest moments of British history, when the land was ruled by warring lords, and innocent women were burned at the stake, when civil war and religious persecution led to multiple massacres and executions. You will meet ghosts of the aristocracy who shaped the country's history and the pathetic wraiths of doomed lovers and humble footsoldiers. Dramatically atmospheric photographs on every page evoke an eerie sense of a living past and haunted present.
