Carisbrooke Castle is a medieval motte and bailey fortress situated right at the heart of the Isle of Wight.

Tales, legends and secrets

From a king’s prison to a royal summer house this quintessential romantic castle is packed full of tales, legends, and secrets.

Climb the steep steps and walk the castle walls, immerse yourself in history whilst exploring the exhibits and then finish the day off with a big slice of cake and cuppa in the tearoom. For those with a little more time a visit to Princess Beatrice Garden to meet the famous Carisbrooke donkeys is well worth the visit.
