Welcome

From 19th May we will be reopening our doors to visitors, so you will once again be able to view the inside of the Castle.

For the moment, you are still able to enjoy our beautiful grounds and beach, or to take a stroll through Steamer Point Nature Reserve to Mudeford. Don’t miss the wonderful views across Christchurch Bay to the Isle of Wight.

Highcliffe Castle is an important example of the Romantic and Picturesque style of architecture; its significance recognised nationally by its Grade 1 listed status. Walking around the grounds you can still admire the historical features which make our bulding so unique.

You will soon be able to discover for yourself the fascinating story of how this once lavish home was destroyed by fires, left to ruin, and subsequently brought back to life. Until then why not learn more and visit our other pages to discover the History of Highcliffe Castle.
