Carisbrooke Castle

Home > Activities > Historic Venues > Carisbrooke Castle

Sitting high and proud at the heart of the Isle of Wight, Carisbrooke Castle has been an artillery fortress, king's prison and a royal summer residence. Today it's the quintessential romantic castle, with lots to see and enjoy in the fresh open air.

Experience far reaching panoramic views from high castle walls, or wander the moat to discover King Charles I's bowling green. Enjoy the tranquil Princess Beatrice Garden, before meeting the famous Carisbrooke donkeys.

Let Carisbrooke's costumed experts bring the history of the castle to life in a Discovery Visit workshop, where your class will delve deeper into the story of the castle and the people who lived there, through hands-on learning activities including role-play, object handling and trying on costumes.
