Wet weather facilities

There are very limited wet weather facilities at Rye Harbour Nature Reserve so remind you to emphasise the importance of suitable clothing.. In poor weather groups can shelter in the large birdwatching hides, or the World War II blockhouses. We can arrange for coach access to the shore and castle.


There are no toilet facilities on the Nature Reserve itself, however public toilets can be found in Rye Harbour village, next to the car park and at Dog's Hill Road, Winchelsea Beach.


Visitors should bring food and drink appropriate to the length of the visit and the season. There are no consumables for sale at the Nature Reserve, but there is a village shop and a café.
