Please Note

After careful consideration the gardens and grounds at Herstmonceux Castle is closed until further notice.
Our priority is the health and wellbeing of people on-site and the wider community. By remaining closed we feel we are following government guidelines and safety for all.
Throughout this difficult time we will continue with our projects on-site including new play area and we will be undertaking virtual tours of the gardens and castle to share.
We will keep updating our website and social media pages which are linked just below this message, on the right hand side.
