Legend

The Dukes Room is located on the cross gallery at the end of the Long Gallery and this area is one of the most haunted in the castle. There have been numerous sightings by staff of fleeting figures in this part of the castle. Members of the public have also found the area to be strangely crowded – two of them made enquiries (separately, but on the same day) after the lady in black seen sitting in a chair beside the fireplace. Similarly, the house steward spotted a lady standing by the door to the Dukes Room one day, and thought she had imagined it, but later that same day a visitor reported having felt the presence of a woman in the exact same spot.
