  • Very nice walk to it, along the sea front. Make sure you research the castle first to check the opening times,was rather disappointed when I discovered that its only open select timed a year, not pike a normal heritage site which is full week access. But still worth going just to admire the grand exterior.
  • Really helpful staff. Great food. Nothing was too much trouble. Would highly recommend this place and will be back again.
  • Knowledgeable guided tour around the castle with interesting historical facts.
  • Well preserved ruins. Wasn't open over New Years though. It just made a good target to get to on the dog walk. Best parking in Rye and walking over.
  • Rough, unaltered piece of history, even when unable to get inside, enjoy the nature around it. Free to roam around it
