I don't think one visits the castle simply to admire the fortress remains but also to take in the flat, levels landscape, the views and the history. It is a very evocative area. There is no shelter on the levels so chose dry day. A pair of bins might be useful if you want to do a bit of bird... More

The castle is only open occasionally although there isn't a great deal to see inside, the walls however are in reasonably good condition considering its age. I think this attraction is worth one visit but I wouldn't bother to return. The castle is set back inland and can either be approached across very muddy fields from Rye Harbour Road or... More

We knew camber castle wasn't open to the public when we visited but wanted to see it anyway! If you gave a map of Rye Nature Reserve it's easily found - about a half hour walk from the main toad to the harbour. - park by the big white containers stored on the RHS of the toad, and rake the... More

OK. So Camber Castle is nowhere near Camber Sands beach. Is this confusing or what? Camber Castle is near Rye Harbour,which isn't actually a harbour! Even more confusing. Camber Sands is miles away,on the other side of the river. You can't even walk there from Camber Castle unless you go back into Rye. OMG!How confusing can anything get? And it... More

The ruins of Camber Castle are well worth visiting if you have any interest in history. There are tours of what is left of it on certain dates in the summer (I seem to remember) but it is fairly spectacular just from the outside. We walked here from Rye town centre on a bracingly cold and wet day but were... More

Great walking area with the goal of visiting an historic landmark that because of its location not many people visit. It wasn't open when we visited but still a very worthwhile visit.

A ruin but well worth the walk. Only open summer-time but is part of English Heritage. Is near bird hides and lakes.

The only way to get there is walking, no car parks nearby!. You can leave your car near Brede Lock outside Rye and walk from there. About a half hour stroll. Very nice! All over the internet, you'll find mention of it open weekends from 2 to 5pm. THIS IS NOT THE CASE!. Only on first saturday in month in... More
