Hurst Castle

The Tudor keep at Hurst Castle is now open. Hurst Castle’s east and west wings remain closed whilst our conservation and repair project is ongoing. We continue to ask the public not to approach the East Wing for their safety.

Protecting Hurst Castle

Situated on a remote and exposed shingle spit which commands the Needles Passage between the Isle of Wight and the mainland, Hurst Castle is subjected immense forces of wind and tide.

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. Our team are now hard at work on a major project to protect and bring stability to the castle.
