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.

300 bunches of cut tulips donated to Key Workers


At the start of April over 300 bunches of flowers have been donated from the gardens at Herstmonceux Castle to NHS workers, carers and vulnerable people in the local area.

The blooms weren’t going to be seen by our visitors so it seemed like the best way to bring some happiness to those really in need of a lift in spirits.

Garden and Grounds manager Guy Lucas said “We’re delighted by the response we have received from all those that were given a bunch of flowers from our gardens. These included NHS Care Packages, Hailsham Crisis support and those in need in the Herstmonceux community. We look forward to seeing everyone back in the gardens and grounds at sometime later this year.”
