Carisbrooke Castle details...

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, Carisbrooke is where King Charles I was imprisoned. Can you find the rooms from where he tried to escape? Or have a go on the bowling green, which was used by the defeated king.

There are all the ingredients here for a great value family day out on the Isle of Wight! Children will love dressing up as Norman soldiers or Civil War troopers and meeting the castle’s famous donkeys who have been drawing up water in the well-house for hundreds of years.
