After much disruption this year from Covid to wall collapses Hurst Castle is finally able to reopen the Tudor keep to the public from Saturday, 29 May 2021. The castle’s Victorian east and west wings remain closed as English Heritage starts work on building new defences which will protect the castle, and allow better access to the damaged east wing.
Henry VIII’s Tudor castle will be open for visitors to explore daily and refreshments will also be available from outside the castle entrance.
There are spectacular views from the top of the castle or as you walk along Hurst spit.
You can get to the castle either by walking the couple of miles along Hurst Spit or taking the little ferry from Keyhaven which first departs to Hurst Castle at 10.00am, then approximately every 30 minutes. The last ferry from Hurst Castle to Keyhaven is at 5.30pm. (Ferry timetables may vary due to weather and tide conditions).
