The Tudor keep at Hurst Castle will open for the season from Friday 1st April 2022. The castle’s Victorian east and west wings remain closed whilst English Heritage’s conservation and repair project is ongoing, with the entrance fee reduced accordingly.

In February 2021, a section of wall on the 19th-century east wing of the castle collapsed, after the sea exposed and undercut its foundations. English Heritage is now coordinating a major project to protect and bring stability to this part of the castle.
