Camber Castle is a lovely old castle sat in the middle of a sheep field. It wasn't open when we passed so if you are keen to go in check opening times before you come. It is still a nice pass to pass by and...More

Bit tricky to find, Harbour Road and the Lock/River gate, looks like a private house's garden and then a small nettle ridden footpath to the left through a big gate with a tiny map on the gate takes you onto the sheep fields and shingle...More

Good food and atmosphere. Lively bar with separate room for eating. Plenty of outside tables too. We tried the £10 evening menu, and it was lovely.

Camber castle is only really accessible by foot and it’s a fair walk over a few sheep fields (roughly 2-3 miles round trip). Another problem is that the castle itself is unmanned and thus it’s inside is unaccessible for most of the year (you have...More
