Great walks around Rye Bay

Rye Bay is a great place for walkers to explore with plenty of marked footpaths. The main walk is the 31 mile 1066 Way which runs from Rye through Winchelsea to Pevensey, passing through Hastings and Battle and linking up with the South Downs Way. The other major walk is the Saxon Shore Way 163 miles from Hastings to Gravesend following the Kent coast for most of its route. It is possible to follow the Royal Military Canal on its 28 miles from Fairlight to Hythe. All these major walks pass close to Strand House and are well signposted.

Shorter circular walks in the area can be followed on the East Sussex Council Walkers App and include the 4 mile Winchelsea to Cock Marling, the 3 mile Camber Castle, the 6 mile Winchelsea Circular, 3 mile Broad Oak to Brede, the 6 mile Doleham to Brede, the 4 mile Peasmarsh and the 3 mile Playden Oast Walks. The Rye Nature Reserve is another great location to wander around and they publish an excellent wildlife guide to the area.
