Really pretty, nice place for a long walk, excellent for people with dogs, children who like skate boarding and cycling.

Free entry, free parking. Great place for lovely walk. We did about one quarter of the paths which took about an hour.

We love this place! Avocets in March are more common than Mallards! Great for many species, great hides, flat walks, shame we only get here once a year.

Rye Harbour is a great place to walk - to the beach or inland. All flat, wheelchair accessible as far as the pebble beach. Sandy beach when the tide goes out. Nature reserve and perfect for bird watching - can stop in the hide for some quiet meditative time. Pub and cafe to go to if you want a break.

Boats, birds and sea views this is a lovely place for a bracing walk at this time of year. An added bonus is a good car park and several places at the harbour to get a nice cup of coffee after.
