Pocket Guide: Carisbrooke Castle Carisbrooke Castle Hotels

The Isle of Wight is home to some spectacular natural beauty, as well as some fascinating and exciting attractions. It's a place rich with history, but it's also a warm and friendly island, popular with holidaying families. One of the island's foremost attractions is the Castle at Carisbrooke. Almost entirely complete, the Castle is served by a whole host of facilities. Located in the central town of Newport, there's also plenty of convenient hotels and guesthouses nearby.

A Piece of History

Carisbrooke Castle takes visitors back to a pivotal point in English history. While construction was started way back in the 12th Century, what the Castle is best known for is the imprisonment of King Charles I prior to his trial, following the English Civil War. The motte-and-bailey castle is in excellent condition, creating a unique vision into the island's fascinating past.

A Complete Attraction

From the harrowing prisons to the luxurious summer residence, the expansive Castle offers something for everyone. There's a pretty chapel, some stunning gardens and the quintessentially English addition of a tearoom, for refreshments. To keep the kids entertained, there are even some friendly donkeys within the grounds.

Attached to the Castle is an excellent and well laid-out museum founded by Princess Beatrice, the youngest daughter of Queen Victoria. The museum houses a wide variety of historical relics, many of which pertain to the history of the Isle of Wight. The long-running exhibition in the Museum is 'Wight at War', telling the island's wartime story.

Hotels near Carisbrooke Castle

Located just outside Newport, the Castle is close to some of the best guesthouses and hotels on the Isle of Wight. The Newport Quay Bed and Breakfast offers a friendly place close to the river, which leads all the way down to the Solent at Cowes. The town's pretty central square is also a short walk away. Here, visitors can sit below the old church and enjoy fine food and drink from one of the town's many eateries.

There are plenty more bed and breakfasts in Newport town centre, but those who prefer to stay by the sea can find their way down to Cowes, where they'll find the Prince of Wales guesthouse.
