Once the capital of the Island, Carisbrooke is strategically placed in the geographical centre of the island, and on the top of a hill, offering perfect defence for the island!

The castle has had several famous residents in its past, but its most famous is it donkeys. The donkeys are used to turn the waterwell for the well.

The walks around the battlements of the castle offer a brilliant view of the islands countryside and the towns of Carisbrooke and Newport.

The summer months offer the visitor the chance to witness the jousting festival! See the website for more events and costs
