One of the main tourist attractions in the Isle of Wight, Carisbrooke Castle is best known as the place where King Charles I was imprisoned. You can still play bowls on the very green Charles used. For a castle that has lived through more than 800 years of service, including resisting a siege by the French and seeing off the Spanish Armada, it's also wonderfully well preserved. There are all the ingredients here for a great value family day out in the Isle of Wight. Children will love dressing up as Norman soldiers or Civil War troopers, and meeting the castle's famous donkeys, while for the grown-ups, the new Edwardian style Princess Beatrice Garden is a joy to explore. Don't Miss The New Princess Beatrice Garden, designed by TV presenter and award winning garden designer, Chris Beardshaw. The tranquil castle chapel and museum with its fascinating Charles I memorabilia. Feeding and grooming demonstrations at the donkey centre.
