Budding knights invited on a castle quest at Carisbrooke

Young knights will be invited to test their valour on a special quest at the historic Carisbrooke Castle in February.
 
Between Saturday 15th February and Sunday 23rd February, budding adventurers will be able to pit their wits against a series of puzzle at the English Heritage-run attraction, with prizes on offer for any young squire managing to complete the quest.
 
The cost of the quest is included in the standard price of admission, with family tickets available for £20.
 
While youngsters are busy on their quests, parents will be able to learn more about the fascinating history of Carisbrooke and see just why it's one of the Isle of Wight's most popular tourist attractions.
 
The castle, which is located just outside the bustling town of Newport, dates back to the sixth century, though it rose to fame several centuries later when King Charles I was imprisoned within its walls prior to his trial following the English Civil War.
 
The castle is also now well-known as being home to a world-class collection of paintings by Constable.ADNFCR-3083-ID-801675049-ADNFCR
