Carisbrooke Castle

  • Description
  • Dates & Prices
  • Getting Here

For a castle that has lived through more than 800 years of service, including resisting a siege by the French and seeing off the Spanish Armada, Carisbrooke Castle is wonderfully well preserved. At the heart of the island's history, the castle is where King Charles I was imprisoned. There are all the ingredients here for a great value family day out in the Isle of Wight. Children will love dressing up as Norman soldiers or Civil War troopers, and meeting the castle's famous donkeys, while for the grown-ups, there is a fascinating museum and the Edwardian style Princess Beatrice Garden.
