Camber Castle

While access to the castle is limited and requires a walk over some sheep pasture to reach it, it is well worth a visit. The interior is ruined, but it’s possible to enter most of the towers and bastions. The towers are connected via a series of connecting galleries. You may find some parking off the A259 near the castle, but more likely you will need to park in Rye and walk the mile and a half.
