D-Day Hero


Young visitors to Hurst Castle can become a 'D-Day Hero' this May half term as part of its celebrations to mark the 75th anniversary of the D-Day landings.

Map plotting skills will be tested as visitors find letters around the castle in a Battleship-style 'HIT OR MISS' activity trail.

The activity is included in the castle admission price and the castle is open seven-days-a-week from 10.30am to 5.30pm.

Ferry available from Keyhaven, every 20 minutes from 10.15am
