Public transport

Visiting the Nature Reserve by public transport is easy with a rail station in nearby Rye. From here you can take a long circular walk or cycle around the whole reserve - the footpaths are shown on our map page. If you just want to visit the Beach Reserve, catch a bus or taxi to Rye Harbour village or Winchelsea Beach.

Map of Rye Town

The nature reserve is down the road called Harbour Road. There is an information board with a map where that road goes over the river Brede.
