About Carisbrooke Castle.

Carisbrooke Castle has experienced sieges, imprisoned kings and seen off the Spanish Armada. Explore a history that spans over 1000 years. Learn about how the castle’s role has changed from fortified defence to home of the Lord Lieutenant of the Island. Bring the curriculum to life and stand at the spot where history happened.

“A day at Carisbrooke Castle is better than weeks in the classroom! Children love that it looks like a ‘real’ castle.”
Sue Pryor, Year 6 teacher
