Isle of Fright launches new phone app

As the nights draw in and Halloween approaches, we love this spooktacular idea from the Isle of Wight – a ghostly phone app holidaymakers can download when they visit Britain’s most haunted island.

Isle of Fright phone app

The new Isle of Fright app features audio ghost stories from 13 of the island’s most haunted destinations.

For the ultimate ‘spooky selfie’, the app also lets you add ghostly apparitions to your holiday photos which you can send to scare your friends and share on social media.

Supernatural destinations featured on the app include:

  • Ventnor Botanic Garden, which was once tended by the inmates of the Royal National Hospital
  • Carisbrooke Castle, where Charles I was imprisoned before being taken to London to have his head lopped off
  • Appuldurcombe House, the former home of the Lady Seymour Worsley – recently featured in the BBC drama “The Scandalous Lady W”

Other spine-tingling events taking place on the Isle of Fright in October include the popular live action experience Park of the Dead; the magical Electric Woods Festival of Light at Robin Hill, and an an enchanted steam train trip from the IW Steam Railway during their ‘Wizard Week’.

The Isle of Fright app is available to download this October and November only. Visit for a link to the app, which goes live on October 4th.
