Places of Interest
Rye Harbour (6.3miles)
Rye Harbour is a flat, open landscape with a Nature Reserve that contains four bird watching hides. The Nature Reserve is varied and dynamic, so you can discover and enjoy a wide range of species at all times of the year. We hold regular events to introduce you to some of our very best wildlife experiences. The area also contains considerable historic interest with military fortifications from the 16th, 19th and 20th centuries.

Rye Harbour Nature Reserve (6.3miles)
Rye Harbour Nature Reserve is a mosaic of habitats beside the sea with shingle, saltmarsh, sand dunes, rivers, pits, grazing marsh, reedbeds and farmland.
This really is a fascinating Nature Reserve, well worth a visit whether you want to discover its wildlife and habitats, explore its history, or simply experience the landscape and enjoy a walk beside the sea, whatever the season. The Nature Reserve lies within a large triangle of land extending south from Rye, along the River Rother, past Rye Harbour to the sea, westward to Winchelsea Beach and northwards along the River Brede.

Camber Sands (7.7 miles)
Camber has 7 miles of Blue Flag award winning beach. It has the only sand dune system in East Sussex and is a valuable habitat for many different animals and plants. The village of Camber is very close to the beach and the dunes system that exists today helps to protect it from the sea. Over the years there have been a few ships that have sunk off Camber. In the 1800's one such ship was the Van Domien, a Dutch vessel purportedly carrying a cargo of grass destined for South America. It has been said that this could be how the dunes got their grass when the seeds were washed ashore. Who knows.

South of England Rare Breeds Centre (15miles)
Whatever the weather or time of year, no other attraction offers so much to see and do as the Rare Breeds Centre with its unique mix of fun, excitement and countryside adventure. Set in 120 acres of unspoilt countryside the Rare Breeds centre is run by the Canterbury Oast Trust, a charity that provides homes, care and occupational opportunities for adults with learning disabilities.

Smugglers at Hastings (16.6 miles)
Deep in the heart of Hastings West Hill lies the Smugglers Adventure. There are acres of caverns that conceal Hastings’ thrilling history of smugglers, warring gangs and bootleggers. The caves have been an attraction since Victorian times but now with over 70 life sized figures, dramatic lighting and some surprises, the caves are now even greater fun for all the family. Are you prepared to be scared?

The RSPB Reserve – Dungeness (21.5 miles)
The RSPB reserve covers a wide swathe of shingle and a series of pools and pits rich in wildlife. The picture windows in the visitor centre overlook a lake full of birds, especially gulls and wildfowl in winter and terns in summer. With paths leading you around the reserve to a series of further pools and birdwatching hides, each providing a different bird experience. As it projects out into the English Channel, Dungeness is often the first, or last, landfall for migrating birds and the open water and scattered bushes around the site can be very rewarding for the birdwatcher at any season.
