A Breif History of Wisbech Castle

Wisbech Castle Manor House, located in Wisbech, Cambridgeshire, England, has a rich and somewhat spooky history that spans several centuries. Here are some of the intriguing aspects of its history:

  1. Medieval Origins: The origins of Wisbech Castle Manor House date back to the 12th century when a motte-and-bailey castle was built on the site. It was constructed by the Bishop of Ely to assert control over the Isle of Ely. Over time, the structure evolved into a manor house.

  2. Haunted Reputation: Over the years, Wisbech Castle has gained a reputation for being haunted. Visitors and residents have reported strange sounds, footsteps, and ghostly apparitions within the building. Some believe these paranormal occurrences are linked to the castle’s turbulent past.

  3. Oliver Cromwell: One of the most notable figures associated with Wisbech Castle is Oliver Cromwell, the English military and political leader during the English Civil War. In the 17th century, Cromwell used the castle as a base during his campaign to capture the nearby town of Crowland from Royalist forces. It is said that Cromwell’s spirit may still linger within the castle.

  4. Imprisonment and Executions: The castle has a history of being a place of imprisonment and even executions. During the English Civil War, Royalist prisoners were held here, and some were executed within the castle walls. This dark history contributes to the castle’s eerie reputation.

  5. Restoration and Use Today: In more recent times, Wisbech Castle Manor House has been restored and is now used for various purposes, including as a venue for weddings and events. The building’s historical significance and its association with Cromwell continue to draw visitors.

  6. Paranormal Investigations: Due to its haunted reputation, the castle has attracted paranormal investigators who have conducted investigations to document any supernatural activity. These investigations have yielded various reports of ghostly encounters.

  7. Public Access: While parts of the castle are accessible to the public, including the museum and gardens, some areas are not open to visitors, though we have access to most of the site. The castle continues to be a point of interest for history enthusiasts and those intrigued by the paranormal.

Wisbech Castle Manor House’s long and storied history, combined with its haunted reputation, makes it an intriguing location for those interested in the supernatural and historical aspects of the site. Visitors can explore its rich history and possibly even have their own paranormal experiences within its walls.

On your ghost hunt with RIP-UK, you will have exclusive access to this location. Our event starts at 8.30 pm, we ask that you arrive with time to spare ideally around 8:15pm. The event will start with a relaxed greeting, health and safety briefing and shortly after we will venture forth into the unknown.

The RIP-UK promise… this is REAL ghost hunting! As a team we promise on our events we fake nothing, we actively ask our event venue hosts to ensure any and all devices in the venue that could distract or cause false positives are turned off. We set up nothing more than the refreshments! This means what happens, happens but we will not make something happen falsely. We do endeavour to create every opportunity for genuine activity through vigil guidance and experiements.

To get the most from the evening we encourage you to try your hand at as many things as you can, if you’re feeling particularly brave you could try a lone vigil, join others on a ouija board or perhaps even sensory deprivation experiments as we try to commune with the spirits and ghosts of the building.

Please dress weather appropriately, with extra layers of clothing if it’s cold, plus comfortable shoes and a torch if you need one. 

You will be required to wear a hard hat when entering the vaults, these are provided for your use. Please note that the ground within the vaults can get muddy and quite slippery, we recommend a sturdy pair of shoes or boots that you dont mind getting a little mucky.
