  • Camber Castle is an awesome place to go. There is a 5-10 minute walk across a few fields to get to the castle but its not very strenous and definitely worth it. The castle is only open from July 1st to the 30th of september at 2pm on the first saturday in the month according to the sign. There is a small fee to go inside unfortunitly we didn't get to go inside but it was still an amazing experience.
  • Lovely ruins. Sadly wasn't open when I visited
  • A great view after a nice walk on the Marsh. You can still see a lot, with so few open days you'll often be the only people put there and with a lot to see.
  • We love this old castle. Walkable from the coast. Great walk on a summers day
  • Even though it's locked up you can still see clear it stings inside it's a lovely walk to go down there
