There are many things that have happened in St Briavel’s castle that would frighten a lot of people. Many people talk about the strange and intense atmosphere that they feel the moment that they enter the castle. One thing that might contribute to the intense atmosphere is the graffiti that is up on all of the walls around the castle from what prisoners had on their mind at the time, including things like “The day will come that thou shalt answer for it for thou hast sworn against me”.
That’s not all that St Briavel’s castle has to offer if you want to experience being in a place like this though.
