Hurst Castle update

In line with government guidelines, Hurst Castle will remain closed in the interests of public health. It is now clear that we will not be able to re-open on 1 May as we had originally hoped. Instead we will re-open as soon as government advice allows and only when we can ensure the safety of our visitors, staff and volunteers.

We look forward to welcoming you to Hurst Castle again very soon but in the meantime we hope that you and those close to you keep healthy and safe.

The castle will open for the 2020 season on Friday 1st May. 10.30am – 5.30pm
(Please note all times are weather permitting and the ferry does not operate in the winter months)


Adult: £5.50
Concession: £5.00
Child (5-17 yrs) £3.50
Family (2 adults & 3 children): £17.00
English Heritage members: FREE
Children under 5: FREE

Tickets can also be purchased at the castle on the day of your visit.
