Castle Rushen

Castle Rushen is located in the Isle of Man’s historic capital, Castletown, in the southeast of the island.

Castle Rushen was built by the Norse King Reginald in the late 1100’s, then enhanced by successive rulers until the 1600s. You can climb the stone spiral staircases to the roof where you can enjoy panoramic views of Castletown and beyond. Inside you’ll be taken through the history of the Kings and Lords of Mann.

Castle Rushen is considered to be one of the best preserved medieval castles in Europe.

During its time it has been used as a fortress, royal residence, a mint and even a prison, it is now a museum with most rooms open to the public during the summer season.

Facilities include toilets, a gift shop and a coffee shop.
