Location: Portchester Castle
Ticket Price: £40
This remarkable location is huge... whether the outer Bailey ground of the Roman and Norman settlements, or the 100ft Norman Keep. From a Saxon settlement, to a Roman fort; to a Norman power base to a Prisoner of War camp, Portchester Castle has dominated the Portsmouth harbour for a millennia. We get a very special opportunity to reopen the Casebook on the Inner Bailey of the Castle. You will get the opportunity to take part in your own paranormal investigation at one of the largest locations we visit. Although we have the whole castle to explore we will focus our attention on the Inner Bailey and The Keep which towers over the castle. Please note there are no toilets on site (but they are public convenience in the car park) and this investigation involves a lot of stairs.
Join Dark Encounters as we carry out a comprehensive paranormal investigation of the site. You will get to investigate for yourselves; setting up experiments, carrying out the experiments and recording your observations. So whether it is a lone vigil in a dark corridor, EVP experiments in one of the palace rooms, or Dowsing experiments in the Keep you will be in the heart of the action. At the beginning of your evening you will have a briefing on ghost hunting techniques and the plan for the evening. Then you will split into smaller groups to carry out the investigation. The teams will be led by experience investigators who will guide you to the correct areas and how to set up the experiments. There will be regular refreshment breaks and then at the end of the evening all teams will have a debriefing as we report the evidence recorded. We will be looking for correlations of phenomena between the groups and previous investigations we have carried out at the location - all recorded in the Casebook of Dark Encounters from the past fifteen years.
