It’s official – Highcliffe Castle and the Russell-Cotes Museum are great places to visit.
The two historic attractions have been recognised as 2021 Travellers’ Choice award winners in the Things to Do/Historic Sites category. Throughout a challenging year, Highcliffe Castle and the Russell-Cotes stood out to travellers and provided amazing experiences despite unprecedented circumstances. Based on a full year of TripAdvisor reviews, award winners represent travellers’ ultimate favourites around the globe.
Cllr Mohan Iyengar said: “These two fabulous venues have different and distinctive styles, and to have both as award-winners says something about the diverse history and culture across our wonderful area. The staff that operate these venues deserve the recognition for their hard work and effort during such a challenging period for the arts and cultural sector. We take great pride in these sites and look forward to them succeeding well into the future.”
Highcliffe Castle, built in the 1830s, is described as being one of the most important surviving houses of the Romantic and Picturesque style of architecture. The significance of the Castle is recognised nationally by its Grade 1 listed status, and today it is open to visitors, in addition to hosting both weddings and events.
The Russell-Cotes was the home of two Victorian collectors and travel enthusiasts, Sir Merton and Lady Annie Russell-Cotes.
There is a regular programme of exhibitions featuring both art and artefacts from the Russell-Cotes own extensive collections, and talks, tours and events take place throughout the year. See russellcotes.com.
