Needs to be brought to life
okt. 2021
It is a two mile walk, along a shingle spit to the castle, or you could take the ferry.
My two granddaughters were more interested in finding the 'witches heads' and the 'rats' than anything about the history of this castle. They enjoyed it and if it had not been for this exercise, it would have been another pile of rocks. There were few information boards with just nominal descriptions of the exhibits. Nothing about the people who lived here, the daily lives of the soldiers and inhabitants, the stories in the evolution of the castle. When will English Heritage think about captivating the interests of visitors and especially our young? That is the reason why I will not take out a membership as I feel that it is not worth it. Sorry EH - I love history but this is pretty dead!

Thanks for your review and visiting Hurst Castle. I'm glad your granddaughters enjoyed the Halloween activities. The interpretation at the castle does need replacing and as you said 'bringing the castle to life' so visitors can understand the history and stories that took place here. We are hoping to begin working with a local volunteer group who are going to help trace and document all aspects of life at Hurst Castle and Hurst Spit, so we hope that, in the not too distant future, new interpretation will be available at the castle.

Impressive Fortification
aug. 2021 • Par
I came here in August this year. Unfortunately I only had about an hour as I didn't realise how long the walk is and that you could take a ferry. Please consider this before you go. I recommend the walk with Hurst Castle in the distance and a nice sea breeze

Really great Castle this is built by Henry Vlll. Unfortunately some of it is still closed due to the sea damage, but still worth going and still lots to see. Spend the day, take in some clean air and relax. Lots of viewing points and some great stuff still inside.

Interesting Tudor Castle
okt. 2021
Good value for money, although some parts are under restoration. Lovely ferry trip over and back which takes about 10 minutes.

A little disappointing
okt. 2021
We walked to and from the castle along the spit. At approx. 2 miles each way it is not not for the unfit and there are no seating places or benches on the spit.
It was interesting to visit, but a lot of the displays and most of the fort was closed due to subsidence caused by the sea. We didn't know about this before we went and probably wouldn't have gone if we had known. The entry price had been reduced because of the closure which made it good value for money. What was open was interesting but very restricted. There is a mobile cafe outside the main castle (which was a bit pricey), but the main cafe and the gift shop were closed.

Castle open Fort Closed
okt. 2021 • Par
We took the £7 return amiable ferry from Keyhaven. Although it is walkable along the spit.
The castle is inside a fort, but the fort was closed due to renovation, which was a shame. With lots of areas off limits it was a short stay.
Nevertheless we had a fine weather day so had good views to the Isle of Wight and the needles. There is a good coffee hut just outside the castle walls.

Basic
okt. 2021 • Par
It was a very windy day and we walked to the castle from Milford on Sea. When we got there, there was no indoor cafe, so we sat outside in the bad weather. The castle area was in need of restoration (some parts were closed because they were unsafe) and there weren’t many displays to read about what was interesting about the site. I am hopeful that this is a ‘work in progress’. The restroom facilities were basic.

Thanks for visiting us and sorry the weather was not great for your visit. English Heritage are undertaking a large repair and conservation project at the castle on both of the wings which will be ongoing for many months. The Tudor keep was open to visitors and we are hoping to start a project over the next few months to improve interpretation in this area.

Hurst Castle
okt. 2021
Walked to Hurst Castle this Sunday morning from The Beach House in Milford-On-Sea with our friends. It was very blustery but the sun was shining and the rain from Saturday thankfully stayed away.
It took about 45 minutes to walk across the shingle beach and whilst a large part of the castle was closed for significant repairs that will take a further three years to complete, we did pay the £4 reduced fee and had a walk around the ramparts and took in the views out to sea and across to the IoW.
Very pleasant way to spend the morning, before heading back home, it was a shame though that not all of the castle was open.

Thanks for your review and visiting Hurst Castle. Work has commenced on the repair and restoration of the East wing - hopefully next time you visit more of the castle will be open.

Visited the castle at night...
sep. 2021
We came here at night, therefore the castle wasn't open and we walked down the whole strip of land, which was a beautiful walk just as the sun was setting might I add. The walk back was super creepy and most of the castle looked like it had fallen down due to a bad storm. Was a very interesting walk but can't comment much on the inside as we couldn't get in ! However, if you like creepy but beautiful night walks, then this is the one for you:)

Glad you enjoyed the walk down - we don't get many reviews from visitors at night! Hopefully you can visit us in the daytime when the castle is open sometime.
