More about Herstmonceux Castle

Herstmonceux is renowned for its magnificent moated castle, set in beautiful parkland and superb Elizabethan gardens. Built originally as a country home in the mid- 15th – century, Herstmonceux Castle embodies the history of Medieval England and the romance of Renaissance Europe.

When you arrive at the castle if you do not have one of our leaflets please ask for one at the ticket office as it contains a map of the grounds and the different walks you may enjoy.

As you drive down the drive your enchantment begins with your first sight of the castle as it breaks into view surrounded by trees and the moat.

We suggest you start your walk in our beautiful Elizabethan walled gardens, up through the Rose Garden and Herb Garden and then head for woodland trails, leading to delightful discoveries such as Woodhenge, the Folly and lake, Rhododendron Gardens and much, much more.

The months below provide a guide as when to visit to enjoy the various areas of the gardens at their best.
