Whilst on your walk around the Castle site, absorb the exquisite architecture that adorns the building. Highcliffe Castle is an important example of the Romantic and Picturesque style of architecture; its significance recognised nationally by its Grade 1 listed status.

The team look forward to welcoming you back to explore the inside of the Castle soon, when you will be able to discover the fascinating story of how this once lavish home was destroyed by fires, left to ruin, and subsequently brought back to life and until then why not learn more and visit our other pages to discover the History of Highcliffe Castle.
