Fantastic walk and in great condition

Took a walk from Rye out to the castle. Many sheep and an easy stroll. Castle is in good condition but is only open 1st Saturday of the month.

Walked here from Rye to Winchelsea beach, stopping at this interesting castle although it's only open once a month, great views of the nature reserve along the way and back towards Rye. Lucky was a sunny day just a little breezy.

This mighty fortress still repels boarders, being open only rarely to the public for safety reasons. However it's still worth walking out across the meadow to gaze through the iron gates, and walk around this unusually shaped castle. There are many deep creeks and lakes between the meadows around here, so it's best to use a map to find your... More

Camber Castle was great to walk to with your dog when you eventually found how to get there, it is not very well sign posted and we drove around for a bit trying to find somewhere to park up. We found the best access parking off a road called Castle Road on the small road to Winchelsea (not the A259).... More

I arranged for our walking group, Country Walks, to have a private visit to Camber Castle with guide Barry. Each member of the group declared this to be a highlight of their few days walking. Barry brought the history alive and was extremely knowledgeable with regard to the local flora and fauna. Next time our group visits Rye, we will... More

We had arranged a private tour of the Castle and it was superb. Full of interest with explanations on the history, architecture, plant and wildlife of the site. Really worth the visit.

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
