The Black Boy Inn, Caernarfon
You’ll find the Black Boy Inn situated in Northgate Street within the medieval walls of Caernarfon.
The Black Boy dates back to 1522 and is said to be one of the oldest inns within North Wales.
With such a long history you probably wouldn’t be too surprised if I told you that the inn has a reputation for being haunted…
To the rear of the Black Boy there was once a convent which probably accounts for the many sightings of a ghostly nun seen walking through the building.
Many guests have heard the sound of a phantom child crying in one of the inn’s bedrooms.
Apparently, if you ask whether the child is OK it stops crying!
Members of staff and punters alike have reported seeing a ghostly figure of a man sitting in the bar area of the pub just watching people.
And a senior member of staff was certain they saw a ghostly apparition of a woman in the bar area when they were working late one night.Click Here to Stay in the Black Boy Inn
Ruthin Castle Hotel, Ruthin
The medieval Ruthin Castle is located in the picturesque Denbighshire’s county town of Ruthin.
The first castle was built by Edward I in 1217.
The Cornwallis-West family built the modern castle within the ruins of the old castle in 1826.
The town of Ruthin and the castle are said to be some of the most haunted places in Wales…
The Grey Lady is the most infamous of the ghost which are said to haunt the castle.
She’s said to be the spirit of a woman who was married to a steward at the castle in the 15th century.
She discovered that her husband was having an affair with a young peasant girl.
It’s said that she murdered the young girl in revenge but was tried and sentenced to death at the castle for the crime.
Today, terrified witnesses have reported seeing her ghostly apparition on the castle battlements and in the banqueting hall.
The apparition of soldier wearing just one glove has also been spotted wandering around the castle grounds.Click Here to Stay in the Ruthin Castle Hotel

You’ll find the Hand Hotel slap bang in the centre of the market town of Llangollen overlooking the River Dee.
The hotel is an old coaching inn which dates back to the 17th century.
The Hand Hotel has a reputation for being haunted by a few ghosts…
Terrified witnesses have seen a ghostly apparition of a lady dressed in grey wandering around the hotel late at night.
It’s believed that she the spirit of a lady called Sarah who nursed her ill brother Albert when he was suffering from TB.
Albert was the stable boy at the hotel and sadly he died from his illness.
His ghost is said to haunt the room in which he died.
A ghostly figure standing by the hotel’s organ has been reported by both members of staff and guests alike.
A member of staff was scared witless one day when he saw a ghostly man wearing a leather apron tapping on a barrel in the cellar.
Apparently the man looked extremely lifelike!
One of the hotel’s rooms is said to be haunted by a former employee who hung himself after he discovered that his wife was pregnant with her lover’s child.
