Please Note

Due to ongoing structural repair work, the castle is not accessible to the public at present. However, it still provides a stunning backdrop to our beautiful gardens, along with the woodland, meadows, and lakes of the wider estate.

Please read the following information before visiting us.

Due to our rural location, visitors often use a vehicle such as car, bicycle or taxi to visit the gardens and grounds. Please make sure your satellite navigation uses the Wartling Road entrance and follow directional signage as our postcode may not lead you to the correct entrance.

The Cuckmere Community Bus is seasonal and has a drop off point opposite the Observatory Science Centre. This will still leave visitors with a short 5 minute walk from the ticket office.

The nearest train station is Polegate which has a taxi rank outside.
