Welcome to Ghost Island

The home of the famous Isle of Wight Ghost books

Many thousands of ghosts, spirits, poltergeists and apparitions haunt the Isle of Wight - acknowleged as the world's most haunted island. This incredible supernatural activity seems due in part to the powerful unseen energy or 'ley' lines running under this British island, situated only 70 miles from London, which now attracts thousands of ghost-hunters from all over the world.

This diamond-shaped island off England's south coast, a covering just 147 square miles, has some 160,000 'living' residents who share their home with many hundreds of ghosts.


Known as Vectis by the Romans who built villas here, the Isle of Wight has a wealth of historic houses, ancient churches and castles. Queen Victoria made her home at Osborne House; King Charles I was imprisoned at Carisbrooke Castle, and writers including Keats, Dickens, Tennyson and Longfellow stayed here.


This magical island has a dark side. Ghosts and spirits abound and the Isle of Wight has a supernatural energy that's particularly evident in some very haunted hotspots. Strong energy or 'ley lines' running under the Island may be responsible for charging the earth's electro-magnetic vibrational field here, so increasing the psychic potential for ghost sightings.
