Experience Elizabethan England and its military might with a stay at the Star Castle on the island of St. Mary's.
Have a pre dinner drink in the dungeon bar and feel a sense of history on your shoulders as you dine in what was the officer's mess. Then have your post dinner drink down in the dungeon bar - once the most secure prison in Britain.
The Garrison is the heavily fortified headland surrounding Star Castle; the frontline of England's defences since the 16th Century. It is accessed via the Garrison Gate, an original arched gateway which dates back to 1742 - or Sally Port, a low passageway squirreled within the thick defensive walls designed to defend against surprise attacks on the Garrison.
A popular walk around the defences yields beautiful panoramic views of all the islands.
