The ghosts all have a secret to hide; will you escape before their stories run out…?
There is a legend surrounding a White Lady at Portchester Castle, some have seen her, many have felt her presence. But she is by no means alone; a spectral monk in his black cloak are said to float around the castle grounds and a rider on horseback is sometimes seen riding, its horse’s hooves even being captured on tape.
