Herstmonceux Castle

About

The 15th Century moated castle is the centrepiece of a 300-acre estate. Beyond the formal and themed gardens, there are meadows, lakes, and woodland to explore. As a result of sympathetic management, these are a haven for a variety of flora and fauna.

Talks and tours of both the castle and the gardens will resume as soon as it is safe to do so. Please check the website and social media for updates.
