Where is Gwrych Castle?

The 19th-century Grade 1 listed country house is located near Abergele in Conwy, County Borough, North Wales.

Gwrych Castle was built between 1810 and 1825 by Lloyd Hesketh Bamford-Hesketh and it has exchanged hands several times since then.

It was later passed down to King George V and then King Edward VIII, who didn't want it and so gave it to the Venerable Order of Saint John.

The castle played an important role in World War II, as the Government used it to house 200 Jewish refugees.

It also served as the training grounds for English World Middleweight boxing champion Randolph Turpin in the early 1950s.

The ruins are said to be haunted by the ghost of the previous owner, the Countess of Dundonald.

The Woman in White, as she is known by locals, is said to be angry that her husband stripped the castle of her valuables and sold them.

Normally the public can visit the castle, but now the castle is temporarily closed to the public until the New Year so it can be used for I'm A Celebrity.
