Take a ghost walk on 'the world's most haunted island'

If you're someone who likes a good fright, you probably normally settle for sitting in your darkened living room watching horror films on the TV or dressing up once a year for Halloween. . 

However, why not do something a little different this year and book ferry travel to the Isle of Wight, which is allegedly 'the world's most haunted island'?

According to local experts, many thousands of ghosts, spirits, poltergeists and apparitions are residents of the Isle of Wight, making it a top destination for those with a fascination for all things paranormal. 

The Ghost Experience ghost walks, run by Marc Tuckey, are among the oldest such tours of their kind in the UK, so you'll be in safe and experienced hands for the duration of your bone-chilling visit to the Isle of Wight. 

A number of spooky events are already planned for this spring - with the long and cold nights at this time of year providing the perfect atmosphere for a truly ghoulish experience. 

First up on February 15th is a half-term ghost walk at Ventnor Botanic Gardens, starting at 8pm. This will be followed on the 18th by a ghost walk at Northwood House near Cowes.

The most haunted places in this imposing historic property are said to be the cellars and the underground passage that links them to the Nunnery Steps lodge on Castle Hill. Torches are said to mysteriously stop working in this dark and foreboding subterranean world, so maybe bring a backup!

Then on February 20th, the Arreton Barns Craft Village in Arreton will play host to another ghost walk, before an overnight, Most Haunted-style paranormal investigation led by the team members of Ghost Experience will be held at St Lawrence Dene on March 8th. 

The cost of this special event, including refreshments, is £40, and those with an interest in taking part should contact Marc Tuckey on 01983 520695 to book a place. It's sure to be terrifying!ADNFCR-3083-ID-801691948-ADNFCR
