Considered one of the most haunted castles in Great Britain, Chillingham Castle was the first line of defence against a Scottish invasion during Edward I’s reign. As a result, its history is quite violent and bloody. Many people were hanged, drawn and quartered here. The dungeons in particular are said to be a hotspot for paranormal activity.
