During your holiday to the Isle of Wight, don't miss the chance to explore the quirky seaside town of Yarmouth and its fascinating castle. Once one of Henry VIII's most sophisticated coastal fortresses, today Yarmouth Castle provides one of the best picnic spots on the island. Enjoy the breathtaking view across the crystal waters of the Solent before stepping inside for an atmospheric recreation of how the castle was used in the 16th century. You can also explore an exhibition telling the story of the many shipwrecks that have occurred in the treacherous stretch of sea overlooked by the castle.
