Discover Carisbrooke Castle
Accessing Carisbrooke Castle through the medieval gatehouse is just the start of your adventure when staying at the Bowling Green Apartment. Explore the ramparts of the curtain wall, designed to defend the castle from artillery attack from the Spanish Armada, the Motte and Keep built in the 12th Century and Princess Beatrice's privy garden that belonged to Queen Victoria's youngest daughter who was Governor of the Isle of Wight and lived at Carisbrooke Castle. Another noticeable resident was King Charles I who was imprisoned here prior to his execution. The bowling green situated behind the Keep was created as the king had developed a passion for the game.Discover Carisbrooke Castle
Wonderful experience, a privilege staying within the castle with after the visitors and staff had left for the night just the wildlife such as on occasion a pair of roosting buzzards, the partridges within the grounds etc. The staff were extremely amiable and helpful, great conversations that illuminated our historical understanding of the castle and its siege by the French etc.
What an experience - we loved it!
It's an amazing location for children. We played hide and seek each evening in the grounds.
From the moment we were welcomed by Annie to the moment we left Carisbrooke Castle, we had a wonderful time. The English Heritage staff on site were all very friendly and helpful, and can highly recommend staying at the Bowling Green Apartment.
