I love visiting castles. This is still in great shape and you can walk all around the outside, and peer in through the gates and grates. It's a shame you can only get in so... read more

Well worth the walk out to visit. Not well sign posted when we went so relied on friendly locals and satnav to locate. There is paying car park quite near. Wild and wind swept. Not open all year but still worth making the effort to visit. Great for photographers and dog walkers.

Rye is so full of great places to eat that it was a joy to know we could use a free map (provided by the heritage centre) and take a walk to the ruined Camber Castle. Much of the time there is no access but you can still peep through the bars... and if the weather had been better we'd... More

Its a lovely walk and a well preserved castle. We took it slow in the streets of Rye and enjoyed the typical European countryside with fish and chips to dye for.

I love visiting castles. This is still in great shape and you can walk all around the outside, and peer in through the gates and grates. It's a shame you can only get in so rarely. A little more inforamtion outside the castle would be great so you can get some history and know what you are looking at. We... More

Fantastic walk from rye harbour nature reserve. It's a shame more cannot be done to make this a nice educational site for kids etc, the castle is locked but it's easy to see around, its fantastic ruin shame more cannot be done with it.

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
