Exhibition celebrating the diverse Hidden Heroes of the Isle of Wight. Come and discover more about the Island people who, across more than 1,000 years of history, have achieved something remarkable or made a special contribution to not only the Isle of Wight but also the wider world. Stories include the father of Seismology (the study of earthquakes), intrepid smugglers turned life-saving lifeboat men, people who celebrated and saved the Island’s culture and heritage and those who took a stand for what they believed in, often against the established ways of their time. Plus many more fantastic ‘hidden heroes’!
Please note: This exhibition is housed in an upper room which is accessible only by stairs. Unfortunately, because the castle is a listed monument it is not possible to make adaptions to provide access to upper floors for those who have difficulty managing stairs.
