Dover Castle

You are here Home  > Historical Buildings >  Dover Castle

CCTV footage recently caught a blurred figure by the castle’s gate. This could possibly be the ghost of a drummer boy who was murdered and decapitated while running an errand; sometimes he is heard drumming. A woman in red and a cavalier have been seen in the old keep, and if you decide to pay visit to the tunnels, you might see the ghosts of World War II soldiers. Screams, conversations, footsteps, banging, and other unexplained noises are picked up. Photos capture mist or even apparitions at times.
