Yarmouth Castle, Yarmouth

(3.6/5 based on 160+ reviews on the web)
This was the last and most sophisticated addition to Henry VIII's coastal defences; it was completed after his death in 1547, with the first new-style 'arrowhead' artillery bastion built in England.

Yarmouth Castle, Isle of Wight provides a magnificent picnic spot, with views over the Solent for a lovely relaxing family day by the sea. Step inside and discover the atmospheric recreation of how the rooms were used in the 16th century, and see the exhibition about the many wrecks which occurred in the treacherous stretch of sea which the castle overlooks.

  • Very small and expensive for what it is. Best to be an English Heritage member, then you get for free. The terrace offers nice views.
