History of 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.  Charles I was imprisoned here in 1648 before being taken to London to his trial and execution.  The castle was modernised during the Napoleonic wars and again in the 1870’s when the enormous armoured wings were constructed.  Two of the huge 38-ton guns installed in the 1870’s can be viewed in their casemates.  During World War II, Hurst was manned with coastal gun batteries and searchlights.  Since the castle has been opened to the public many more exhibits and exhibitions have been installed.  These include the Garrison Theatre, the Trinity House lighthouse exhibition and the Association of Lighthouse Keepers' display room.  

Hurst Point Lighthouse: The lighthouse guides vessels through the hazardous western approaches to the Solent, indicating the line of approach through the Needles Channel.  It is situated right next to the castle, and the lighthouse constantly attract photographers & wildlife spotters.  Whilst you cannot go inside, you can wander around the delight surrounded area.
