Haunted Castles In England - Berkeley Castle

This is a medieval castle well worth a visit and merits several posts on the Medieval Castle Blog.

Berkeley Castle is said to be a haunted castle and when you read the story of the confinement, torture and death of King Edward II that took place there, you can understand why. It is a horrific story and when you visit Berkeley Castle and see the guard room where the King's torture is believed to have taken place, there is no doubt about the chilling atmosphere that seems to pervade it.

Here is a video of the guard room taken from the courtyard outside. The windows are the very same as the poor King probably looked out of in desperate hope of being rescued.
