Sammy Millier Motor Museum

Hurst Castle

Hurst Castle was the perfect location to defend the western approach to the Solent.

The castle was built by Henry VIII as one of a chain of coastal fortresses and was completed in 1544. A critical element in the improvement of the defences

of the south coast by Henry VIII was the protection of the Solent, for this stretch of water gave access to the important ports of Portsmouth and Southampton.

To reach Keyhaven, from Lymington, take the A337 to the B3058 signposted to Milford-On-Sea. At Milford, take the Keyhaven Road. There is a car park at Keyhaven.

By boat – from Keyhaven.
There is a regular ferry service from Keyhaven to Hurst Castle, operating from April until the end of October. It is not possible to reach Hurst Castle by car.
