Information regarding recent developments at Bader College and Herstmonceux Castle (13/03/2024)

Due to the ongoing repairs at Herstmonceux Castle and groundworks in progress, we would like to remind dog walkers, ramblers, and visitors to keep to the public bridleways and footpaths that traverse the estate and not to wander onto the estate.
Due to the hazard of construction workers and their vehicles on site we have asked our security team to enforce this for the safety of everyone.

We are closed to the public until May 1st 2024 but will update the public on times of opening nearer to 1st May. The gardens and grounds are saturated with all the rain we have experienced this winter, and we hope that the grounds will have dried out by opening day.
