    Somehow we never managed to visit Carisbrook Castle despite the fact we both put it on our list of things to do :-(

    It looks great. I love exploring ruins.

  13. @ Laura: Thnak you! I turned around and saw that view and thought "Wordless Wednesday"!

    @ John: Good guess about it being Carisbrook! I love exploring ruins too.

    @ Fullet: It was great! We had a load of fun.

    @ Mum: No, no decisions required as we explored the whole castle in the end!!

    @ JaPRA: Yes! It was Carisbrook Castle!

    @ FishHawk: Awww, and I have been to four castles in my time in the UK. I love them!


    @ Travelling Rants: Thank you! I found you on Twitter!

    @ Kathy: It is medieval. It was built in about 1100 and they kept extending it for about another 500 years.

    @ Erin: yes, it is Carisbrook on Isle of Wight and definitely worth a visit.

    @ Jen: Thank you! I liked this particular photo too.

    @ Ivanhoe: Ha! It was only short though as it went around the castle.

    @ The Ancient Digger: It was indeed full of history! Charles I was kept there for over a year in the time leading up to his execution and his daughter died there!

    @ Claire: me too!

    @ Jayne: Ha! You'd love Isle of Wight then as it is full of open spaces to ride on!
