Camber Castle - between Rye and Winchelsea

Located near to Rye and Winchelsea, Camber Castle was built under instruction from Henry VIII along with many other forts he erected in the 1500’s.

The castle was built as a coastal fort to act as a defence building for the two villages, and as a home to artillery.

Structural work was carried out on the building in the 1960’s and 1970’s which meant repairing and re-pointing brickwork and hard capping the wall tops to make it stable again. Further similar work was conducted later on, and finished in 1995, which meant the castle could open up to welcome a limited amount of visitors through its entrance.

Due to health and safety issues, the castle is no longer open to visitors, though group bookings are welcome should you wish to take a guided tour.

However, the castle can be approached from the outside and the walks up to the castle and around the nature reserve offer the willing hiker wonderful ways to take advantage of the area. Circular walks, and walks from the nearby car park to the castle can take you around the Castle water and farm.
