Castle Rushen School Visits

Castle Rushen is a great medieval fortress which has expanded to its present dimensions over several hundreds of years, culminating in the seventeenth century.

The refurbished interiors cover four main periods: medieval. Early Tudor, seventeenth century and the nineteenth century prison period.

The Castle’s imposing limestone walls hold tales of siege, treachery and imprisonment throughout the ages but can be used as a stimulus for most curriculum areas.
