About

Herstmonceux Castle Gardens and Grounds is a 300 acre estate including woodland, formal themed gardens and of course a 15th century moated castle.

Made from red brick Herstmonceux Castle is one of the earliest examples of a brick built building in England.

As well as operating throughout spring and summer as a popular tourist attraction, Herstmonceux Castle also operates as an International Study Centre for Queen’s University in Canada, the castle hosts international students every year who come to England to study within this tranquil setting.

Throughout the year Herstmonceux Castle will host students, tourists, residential conferences, corporate events and weddings.
