Hurst Castle was built between 1541 and 1544 by Henry VIII and was part of a chain of artillery fortresses protecting key ports and landing places around southern England. It has been modernized over the years and is now run and maintained by English Heritage. We walked there along the spit and then got the ferry back which is a fun trip on its own. It's a fascinating place with plenty of things fro the kids to look at and get into. The old Tudor Castle and later 12.5 inch guns. A good family afternoon out!
