Once the capital of the Island, Carisbrooke is strategically placed in the geographical centre of the island, and on the top of a hill, offering perfect defence for the island!

The castle has had several famous residents in its past, but its most famous is it donkeys. The donkeys are used to turn the wheel to draw water from the well
