Castle

Hurst Castle is situated at the seaward end of the shingle spit that extends 1.5 miles from Milford-On-Sea. The end of the spit, only three-quarters of a mile from the Isle of Wight, and the views from the top of the centre keep are spectacular.

Hurst Castle was the perfect location to defend the western approach to the Solent. The castle was built by Henry VIII as one of a chain of coastal fortresses and was completed in 1544.

Charles I was imprisoned here in 1648 before being taken to London to his trial and execution.

The castle was modernised during the Napoleonic wars and again in the 1870’s when the enormous armoured wings were constructed. Two of the huge 38-ton guns installed in the 1870’s can be viewed in their casemates.

During World War II, Hurst was manned with coastal gun batteries and searchlights.

Since the castle has been opened to the public many more exhibits and exhibitions have been installed. These include the Garrison Theatre, the Trinity House lighthouse exhibition and the Association of Lighthouse Keepers' display rooms.

William the Conqueror set aside the Forest for hunting more than 900 years ago as his 'Nova Forestra' or 'New Forest' and centuries of grazing by deer, ponies and cattle have shaped the landscape.

William would probably still recognise much of the Forest as the same place he hunted wild deer and boar. Today it is a wonderful area to explore by walking, cycling and on horseback. Enjoy your visit and please help to keep the New Forest National Park a special place.

Café

Tudor House Café overlooks the delightful Tudor Knot Garden. It serves a delicious range of refreshments all day, from fresh coffee and biscuits to tea and fabulous cakes. Most of our range is sourced locally, using the finest ingredients. The café is a perfect location for your freshly made lunchtime sandwich, snack or that sweet treat. We offer children’s sized portions and high chairs for younger visitors.

The Café roof is of particular interest, being green … literally. It has a sedum and wildflower roof, which assists insulation and is also enjoyed by the bees. You can enjoy the Tudor House Café without needing to pay for admission to the rest of the building, so give it a try for your next lunch date or business rendezvous. The downstairs Georgian Room overlooking the garden, is available for corporate hire for meetings or training sessions on weekdays (Tues-Fri). Our cafe can also cater for working lunches.

Shop

Tudor House shop is the perfect place to pick up a souvenir of your visit or a special gift for family or friends. We have a lovely range of quality Tudor and Victorian inspired gifts and books as well as lots of interesting and reasonably priced souvenirs and treats suitable for children with a little pocket money to spend. You’ll love our range of tapestry items and ‘pocket’ garden herbs and flowers. You may also be tempted by our delicious range of liqueurs and preserves, or just want to pick up one of our unique postcards so you can write and tell your family and friends what a great time you had at Tudor House.
