The ancestral home of the Dukes of Norfolk, Arundel Castle, although mainly of the 19th century, is probably built on foundations dating from the 12th century or earlier and has four ghosts: a white bird, a dandy, a boy and a girl.
The white bird, a portent of ill tidings or evil, is found fluttering against the windows of the castle when the death of one of the family is near.
The figure of a dandy has been reported since the days of King Charles II and is known as the 'blue man'. The figure has been seen, on many occasions, looking at books in the library and dressed in blue silk, hence his name, but nobody knows what he is looking for, or why, or if he ever finds it.
A former kitchen boy, ill-treated by the head cellarer some two hundred years ago, haunts the great kitchen of the castle, and his ghost has been heard, but not seen, cleaning pots and pans as though his very life depended upon it. A young girl, dressed in pure white, is seen on still, moonlit nights in the vicinity of a tower on the brow of a hill. The tower is named Hiorne's Tower, and from it the girl is said to have thrown herself to her death in desperation because of unrequited love.
