Carisbrooke has been a central place of power and defence on the Isle of Wight for over 1,000 years. During that time it has been a Saxon fortress and a castle of the Norman conquest, much remodelled during the Middle Ages and under Elizabeth I.

The quintessential romantic castle, Carisbrooke has been an Elizabethan artillery fortress, a king's prison and a royal summer residence. Here you can meet the loveable donkeys and see them work, visit a fascinating museum and see the castle's Edwardian garden. Experience far reaching panoramic views from high castle walls and place yourself at the very heart of the Isle of Wight's History. Carisbrooke's Princess Beatrice Garden was awarded 1st place in the category of Best Small Tourist Attraction by Isle of Wight in Bloom 2017.
