Camber Castle isn't, strictly speaking, a castle and it's miles from Camber. That said, it's a fascinating break in a walk in Rye Harbour Nature Reserve. Almost entirely unrestored, the castle (it's really a Tudor gun platform) is only open for three month s of the year but you can easily see in through the bars of the gates, and... 更多
One of the ruins that Cromwell knocked about a bit....only it wasn't 'im. A fascinating round turret castle now in the middle of nowhere...except that your by the wonderful Rye Harbour Nature Reserve and the equally magnificent Rye Bay coast. Put your boots on..it's worth it.
