Carisbrooke Castle Visitor Volunteer

Find an opportunity > Carisbrooke Castle Visitor Volunteer

Carisbrooke Castle plays an integral role in both the history of the Isle of Wight and the wider country. Home to Isabelle de Fortibus, Sir George Carey, Princess Beatrice and prison to Charles I, it is steeped in English history. In its time, the castle has been a symbol of political power, a fortress protecting England against invasion, a prison and a home.


Where and When

  • Carisbrooke Castle, Castle Hill, Newport, Isle of Wight, PO30 1XY
  • Sessions (usually four hours) are available throughout the year which are entirely flexible

Who we're looking for

We are looking for volunteers who will be able to communicate well with all age groups, and someone who is keen to learn the history of Carisbrooke Castle and share this with visitors.
