Surrounded by England's green and pleasant landscape, Carisbrooke Castle is a must-visit landmark on the Isle of Wight.

Perched on a steep motte at the heart of the island, the medieval castle has an eventful past. Through the centuries it's been a besieged fortress, an idyllic royal summer residence, and even a prison for the overthrown Charles I.

There are stellar views to be had from the castle walls, and visitors can also meet the famous Carisbrooke donkeys. Another highlight is Charles' bowling green, where the imprisoned Stuart king would cut loose prior to his beheading in 1649.

Really great day out. Friendly staff who had time to talk to you about the exhibits. Went out of season so it wasn’t crowded. Some great exhibits in the museum.

Was a great castle to visit, not the terrible crowds we have been dealing with elsewhere. Very historic & true to how things were many centuries ago.
