Highcliffe Castle

About

Highcliffe Castle is a Grade I listed mansion built in the romantic gothic style. It was built by Lord Stuart de Rothesay in the early 1830s and remained a family home until the 1950s. It is situated on the cliff top with beach access and spectacular views across to the Isle of Wight.

Two devastating fires in the 1960s rendered the building derelict, but a programme of restoration works has brought the building back to life.

The Castle is open to visitors from Sunday to Thursday from 10:00 to 16:00 (last entry 15:00).
