Information about recent developments at Bader College and Herstmonceux Castle - 26th April 2024

We are delighted to announce that the Gardens and Grounds of Herstmonceux Castle will be open to the public on May 1st 2024.

When you visit you will be directed to a different car park on the west side of the castle as the car park to the south of the castle is full of equipment and contractors who are involved in replacement and restoration projects. The south elevation will be encased in scaffolding for 2024. If you visit in early May, you will notice that the gatehouse is already covered in scaffolding and the rest of the south elevation will be completed by late June.

Chestnut’s café will be run by George from Geo’s in Herstmonceux village https://www.geoscoffeehouse.com/, and will open on May 6th 2024.

The Gift Shop will not open this year, as we need to make repairs to the roof and the Visitor Centre will open later in the summer with an exhibition of the repairs and restoration we are undertaking in the next few years.
