Contents of the trench can be altered to meet needs of the class.

Carisbrooke Castle Museum was set up by Queen Victoria’s daughter, Princess Beatrice. Its collections include many acquisitions relating to the Island. One of these is an archive of documents and photographs relating to the ‘father of earthquake science’, John Milne. Students will gain unique insight into the work of a man whose work saves people’s lives.
Dimbola Museum & Gallery
Home of Victorian photographer Julia Margaret Cameron. A woman ahead of her time, she was ambitious and free thinking when most Victorian women were passive and demure. During your visit, students can explore the Victorian celebrities she photographed on the Isle of Wight through the lens of her camera, and trace the history of photography.
