Carisbrooke Castle

Recommended
Built in 1100 by Richard de Redvers, bought by Edward I in 1293, attacked by the French in the 14C, fortified in the late 16C to withstand the Spanish, and Charles I's place of imprisonment from 1647 to 1648, the castle is far from lacking in misadventures and tales to tell. This colourful history explains the variety of architectural styles and periods. Whether it be the 14C gatehouse, the private apartments or the keep, which has views for miles around, the castle is both compelling and entertaining. Don't miss the well-house.
