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.
