The walk across the fields to this castle takes a long time, but enjoyed looking around even if it was just the outside, as it is only open for a short time. Owned by English Heritage now it looks good inside. Hard to understand why the castle is so far from the sea, but the setting is wild and you... More

The castle is in the middle of a field a mile from the sea. it use to be 150 metre from the sea, the tour we had revealed the growth and destruction of the castle, very interesting. Henry v111 strikes again.

A decent walk from Winchelsea, but well worth seeing. The views along the coast are very clear and an excellent place to see, although not much to do.

WE were walking from Rye to Winchelsea on a drizzly day and detoured off the path to take a closer look at Camber Castle, which I thought was one of the Saxon Shore Forts, but turned out to be a fortification built by Henry Eigth against French invasion! Unfortunately when we got there the castle was closed as it has... More

An old ruin with great scenic views in and around the castle. Great walks also and situated within a nature reserve

We had loads of fun there. It's a traditional Pub with darts, pool table, big screen TVs tables outside. Very nice staff. I recommend it highly

Very clean and well looked after, quite dramatic when the waves are high. A must for a Kentish holiday

We started our quest at the hairpin bend around the river either in rye on the road to Rye harbour. You have to look but the pathway starts on the outside bend of the road . From here it is grass all the way . Once you spot the castle you will be duped into thinking it is not very... 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
