Walk to Hurst Castle

Hurst Castle, Keyhaven

This superb circular walk will take the best part of a day if you make the most of a look round the excellent Hurst Castle. Start at the pretty village of Keyhaven, little more than a cluster of boats with a great put by the waters. From here, regular seasonal ferries take you across on the short ride to Hurst Castle, a fabulous castle at the end of a shingle spit opposite the Isle of Wight which was built by Henry VIII and subsequently used in World War II. Once you’ve finished exploring the warren of atmospheric rooms and admired the views from the rooftops, you can walk back via the 1.5-mile long shingle spit itself, returning to Keyhaven (another 1.5 miles) via a narrow road that skirts a marshy nature reserve.
