Visitors to the Island can see some of the most haunted locations in Britain, hear the sad and ghoulish stories of their former inhabitants or be photographed with supernatural apparitions. If you live on the Island you will already know where the ‘haunted’ locations are so why not join in a ‘Ghost Walk’ if the paranormal is for you.

It will be available to download this October and November only (from 4th October) and you can use it wherever you go. Thirteen of the Isle of Wight‘s most haunted destinations are featured in audio ghost stories that can be downloaded free from the app. These spooky spots include Appuldurcombe House, former home of the Lady Seymour Worsley – recently featured in the BBC drama “The Scandalous Lady W” and Knighton Gorges, the grand house of her former lover George Bisset.

There’s hubble, bubble, toil and trouble at The Needles Landmark Attraction this October half-term, and you’re asked to look out for ghoulish goings-on, and spooky shenanigans.
