About Highcliffe Castle

This stunning Grade 1 listed Mansion is situated on the cliffs at Highcliffe, overlooking Christchurch Bay and The Isle of Wight. It was built between 1831 and 1835 by Lord Stuart de Rothesay, and is often described as the most important surviving house of the Romantic and Picturesque style of architecture.

The building was derelict for 2 decades after 2 fires, but has now been fully restored externally.

The castle is free to visit and is often used as a wedding venue. The grounds were designed by the famous Capability Brown.
