2017 Haunted Castle tour!
I'm June, Vice President of The Advanced Ghost Hunters of Seattle Tacoma and here is my account of our amazing trip.
On November 3, 2017 I left to do a layover in Reykjavik Iceland for a couple of days. I was really planning on going to a couple of the graveyards there but the weather turned pretty bad so my other tour was canceled, but luckily I did get to see the Northern Lights that first night. That was incredible!!
The next day was a full on ice and snow blizzard while heading to the airport, that was also the day that I started to put my coat on and it blew away. So had to get a new coat when I got to London.
I stayed in the Tower hotel the first night. That was incredible, right next to the Tower Bridge and the Tower of London. I had actually gone through it a couple of years before, so did not go through it again.
Then I ventured into the church, All Hallows-by-the-Tower, also previously dedicated to St Mary the Virgin and sometimes known as All Hallows Barking, is an ancient Anglican church on Byward Street in the City of London, overlooking the Tower of London. The extremely sweet elderly woman in the church talked to me quite a while telling me the ghost stories of the crypts below the church.
The crypt area was extremely eerie and I felt like someone was standing close to me. As I stood there looking at the artifacts I did an EVP session.
It was really interesting how they unearthed a lot of pagan artifacts under the church
It was time to move on after that and meet up with Ross and Jon in London, the next day was High Gate Cemetery. Although I had been there a couple of years before, the West side can only be seen if you are in a group tour. So we got to do that this time. The whole cemetery is incredible:
We then made our way to Chillingham Castle. This was not an easy place to get to without a car. Found out the bus that was going there from the small town that was relatively close by only left every 4 hours, so we took a taxi there. The driver said that it didn't even show up on his GPS but he thought he knew where it was. BUT we got there just fine. Weather was sunny but cold and no rain. So it was great. Chillingham castle is supposed to be one of the most haunted castles in the UK. This is where we also met up with our friends Mark and Aileen from Edinburgh. We even took the Ghost Tour that night and did a couple of investigations.
Below is an interesting short video at Chillingham Castle, it could have been just a draft but it was interesting that it even opened further when asked. This didn't happen again.

Before we went to Rosslyn Castle we made a stop at the The Holy Island of Lindisfarne, also known simply as Holy Island, is a tidal island off the northeast coast of England, which constitutes the civil parish of Holy Island in Northumberland. An old ruin now, the best Mead I have ever had.
Our next stop for a few days was Rosslyn Castle. What an amazing place. Mark and Aileen arranged for us to stay there for 3 nights/4 days. Ruins around us with a dungeon and prison cells below us. We had night after night of investigations and eerie strange happenings.
