A perfect venue for coach trips and groups

Herstmonceux Castle is an ideal destination for groups and coach trips. Groups can enjoy a peaceful stroll around the formal gardens, or a more adventurous walk around 300 acres of managed woodland.

Groups can purchase souvenirs and enjoy a selection of hot and cold refreshments in Chestnuts Tea Room as well as take in our rich and varied history on a castle tour or in the Visitor Centre.

We recommend that coach parties and groups pre-book a minimum of two weeks prior to visit, in order that we can arrange Castle Tours and accommodate catering requirements more efficiently. Complimentary entrance is offered to the group organiser.
