Hurst spit and castle

Yachts moored behind Hurst beach and spit

We had a great day out yesterday at Hurst spit and castle, which is in Hampshire on the watersedge of the Solent. We parked at Keyhaven and walked out to Hurst castle on the spit, having lunch halfway along.

It was very windy and the shingle spit certainly absorbs ones’ energy, but it was a great walk. We thoroughly explored the many nooks and cranies of the enormous castle and battlements. What an extraordinary place! And what great views of the Isle of Wight, the Needles and sailing boats jostling inbetween!

We finished by getting the little ferry back to Keyhaven.

A really great day out!
