Highcliffe Castle, Grade 1 listed cliff top mansion built by Lord Stuart de Rothesay between 1831-1835 became derelict in the late 1960’s following two fires. The exterior restoration is now almost complete.

Although no longer with its rich interiors, Highcliffe Castle houses a Visitor Centre where you can find out about the castle’s history and see a range of changing art exhibitions.

We also host a wide range of concerts and events.

After browsing in the fascinating gift shop, you can relax with a cream tea or maybe a stroll through the grounds which include woodlands walks and access to the beach.

We welcome group visits and full guided tours can be arranged in advance. The grounds and tearooms are open all year and the castle is open from February to Christmas between 11-5pm. Full details can be found at
