UNLIMITED ACCESS TO OVER 400 HISTORIC PLACES
Live and breathe the story of England at royal castles, historic gardens, forts & defences, world-famous prehistoric sites and many others.
Sun 17 Dec 2017
Carisbrook Castle, Isle of Wight
Delays to works scheduled at the Castle have unfortunately forced us to close our well house until further notice. Unfortunately we will not be able to offer well house demonstrations until works are completed. Meet the donkeys by visiting the castle stables, where you can speak to our knowledgable team and learn all about them and their work here at Carisbrooke.
Come and meet Carisbrooke Castle’s favourite four-legged friends! This is your chance to get hands-on with our donkeys. Be a keeper for the day, see how the donkeys are cared for and take part in donkey meal times. You can have a go at looking after them yourself and of course offering plenty of cuddles. Plus, take part in a fun, donkey-related quiz.
One accompanying adult per child is free. Drinks and a snack will be provided at the end of the day, with a hot drink for the adults. Activities are recommended for children aged 5-14yrs.
This event has moderate access – you will be getting hands-on with our donkeys, with some uneven ground as you walk around the site. Please dress warmly and make sure you wear clothes you don’t mind getting a bit dirty! Parents must supervise children at all times.
