Magical walk across nature reserve from Rye , though initially too the wrong path as the signing is poor. Castle emerged from the landcscape through lakes and rushes. Then a great walk back along the canal

The walk from the car park to the sea and then along to the former lifeboat station is interesting and with good views on a decent day. Turning inland across the fields to what’s left of the castle, doesn’t really add much.

Camber Castle is a lovely old castle sat in the middle of a sheep field. It wasn't open when we passed so if you are keen to go in check opening times before you come. It is still a nice pass to pass by and...More

The walk to the castle was good, we crossed the fields first and came back via the marsh. Unfortunately, when we arrived at the castle it was closed and a notice said it only opened on a particular day every so often, and then it...More

We decided to visit the castle as it was listed on our English heritage package, dissapointed that it's only open for a guided tour first Saturday of each month, otherwise the whole place whichbis quite small is in lock down, considering the size it should...More

Bit tricky to find, Harbour Road and the Lock/River gate, looks like a private house's garden and then a small nettle ridden footpath to the left through a big gate with a tiny map on the gate takes you onto the sheep fields and shingle...More
