  • Is Llancaiach Fawr Manor haunted?

    That’s one of the most frequent questions asked at Llancaiach Fawr. And the answer is… YES! It is.

    Previous residents, members of staff and many visitors can all testify to uncanny events and our fame has spread since episodes of TV’s Most Haunted programme and John Sparkes Ghost Story have been filmed here. Experience ‘The Ghosts of Llancaiach’ for yourself.

    Ghost Tour Season

    Llancaiach Fawr Manor has a well-deserved reputation for being haunted. To experience the eerie atmosphere, book a ghost tour an immerse yourself on a spine tingling journey around the dimly lit Manor House.

    Ghost tours are available throughout the winter months on Friday and Saturday evenings.

    Numbers are limited for safety reasons and pre-booking is essential. We do not take children under 16 years of age on ghost tours unless accompanied by an adult on the Family Ghost Tour.

    REMEMBER: we don’t fix anything so we can’t guarantee that the House will be active.
