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.

Tattoo at the Castle

July was a busy month for events and celebrations. At the start of July The Band of the Princess of Wales’s Royal Regiment and The Pipes and Drums of the London Scottish Regiment, performed an open-air military concert followed by a beating retreat in front of the castle.

It was a magnificent turn out and in aid of ABF, the Soldiers’ Charity is the National Charity of the British Army, supporting soldiers, veterans, and their families for life when they are in need.

The charity makes grants to individuals, and to a wide range of specialist charities who provide support for the Army.

We welcomed to the castle for the second time in one month, HM Lord Lieutenant of East Sussex Peter Field.
