Castle Hill, Newport, United Kingdom, PO30 1XY
If you are visiting the Isle of Wight, a trip to this famous castle is a must. It was here during the English Civil War that King Charles I was imprisoned under the orders of Oliver Cromwell, after Charles made a failed attempt to escape from his captors on the mainland. The whole story is told in the Isle of Wight museum, which is situated inside the remnants of the castle's Great Hall. Also worth seeing is the well-house, where a donkey works a 16th-century wheel to draw water from a well. The castle is surrounded by seven acres of grounds and the main walls and keep are Norman. By climbing the battlements you can enjoy sweeping views in every direction. Refreshments are available during the summer and there is also a gift shop. Picnics are welcome.
