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

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.

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

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.
