Carisbrooke Castle 2
This was taken from the steep
steps leading up to the castle's Keep. The views from here are great and
there is another deep well up here.
Carisbrooke can be seen to the right of this picture.
This is looking at the rear of the main building which houses the museum. Princess Beatrice, the youngest daughter of Queen Victoria, on 11 August 1898 opened the museum in the gatehouse as a memorial to her late husband Prince Henry of Battenberg. The exhibits related mainly to King Charles I - imprisoned in the castle for the last year of his life - and comprised personal relics, documents, prints, and armour of the English Civil War period.
