A full moon over Cardiff Castle

The haunting of Cardiff

A City after dark

Cardiff, a place of history, a place of intrigue, a place of hauntings. Did you know, according to Stay in Cornwall, Cardiff is the UK’s 3rd most haunted City and the most haunted City in Wales according to jomec? It’s no wonder, with all the naturally gothic architecture, that allegedly creeping figures lurk behind their walls. Cardiff’s Royal Infirmary, home to the sightings of a ghost known as ‘The Matron’ or the infamous landmark Cardiff Castle, home to many a ghostly figure. You can even, if you dare, take a ghost tour of Cardiff Castle and experience these haunts for yourself. Did you also know that a good scare is good if you suffer from anxiety? The adrenaline rush and escapism you get provides a release and lets you forget about your anxiety for a while.

Here at Orchard, we love a good spook. Over the years, we’ve worked with many clients and created spooky experiences, whether it be a ghost walk at St Fagan’s Museum, or showing some spine-tingling Halloween films at Newport Market to a bespoke Halloween Virtual Reality experience at Techniquest’s Halloween Event, we’ve done it all. Then we thought, besides ghost tours and bespoke experiences, what else is there to do in and around Cardiff that can scare the pants off us?

Well; there is many a horror lurking around South Wales, and you can experience them for yourself –
