Not much left of the castle but maintained by English Heritage. However can be muddy and a bit slippery when wet. Worth it for the views though.

We stopped here to give the dogs a walk on a journey. A large site on a hilltop, with very little of the castle remaining. The tower seen in the photos is more like a lonely "Old Man of Hoy" . The best feature would be the panoramic views over the River Arun but on a sleety, drizzly morning this... More

I often trek up here - have had many a picnic and childrens birthday party in this little gem. Shared by lots of local families and dogs. The moat is good for a walk round but very slippery in wet weather.

It is very pretty area and worth a wak around the town and maybe a bite for lunch. But as alot have said the castle itself is a little disappointing. Really not much to see, drove for miles to see it when everything else was closed. Lovely little walk would come again just have more of a day trip planned

There is not much left of Bramber Castle but the small church by the side is interesting. Great views across the village and the South Downs though. Car park is free but there are no facilities. Close to the village of Steyning which is also worth a visit.

We were staying in the Hotel over the road and found the Castle ruins by accident, but were pleased we did, and the old Church dating from 1073 adjacent. There's not a lot of the Castle left but we thoroughly enjoyed the walk around the remaining perimeter wall and seeing the tall 'pinnacle' remains of the tower. Seeing something 'man-made'... More

Got to be honest their is very little to see well maintained but it is just a ruin but great views and you can certainly see why they chose to build it there

Bramber Castle was founded by William de Braose in 1073. There are a few parts around to see and its a pleasant walk if in the area
