Lympne Castle

Lympne Castle is now a beautiful wedding venue, but it has according to its website, been providing hospitality to visiting nobles since the 13th century. However, there are indications that the site was used from Roman times, as beneath the foundations of the Castle are the remains of Portus Lemanis. Their website also makes mention that "some people do claim to have seen the odd ghost still happily going about their business after many centuries".


According to Coxe, the castle is reputedly haunted by the ghosts of six Saxons murdered here by the Normans. Another apparition is that of a Roman soldier.
