Discover Hurst Castle
Experience the military might of this fortress by the sea
Hurst Castle is now closed for the season.
Thank you to all those who visited us this year. See you again soon.
In February 2021, a section of wall on the 19th-century east wing of the castle collapsed, after the sea exposed and undercut its foundations. English Heritage is now coordinating a major project to protect and bring stability to this part of the castle.
For more information on the project, see English Heritage
A visit to Hurst Castle is one of the best days out in the New Forest with plenty of open space for children to explore and fantastic views of the Isle of Wight. It is a must for visitors to this area.
Hurst Castle is managed by Hurst Marine on behalf of English Heritage, who care for over 400 historic monuments, buildings and places.
