Amberley Castle is an imposing 14th century stone quadrangular enclosure fortress, encasing an older manor house in its south-east corner. Still completely enclosed by a high curtain wall, which is only flanked by a magnificent twin-tower gatehouse to the south and a kitchen block and a garderode tower with gun loops to the north. Square internal towers stood at the corners, with a small water-gate in the west wall and a Norman postern in the east wall. 5 miles north at Pulborough is Park Mount and 5 miles south is Arundel Castle.
Amberley Castle is located in the village centre, off New Barn Road. 22 miles west of Brighton, on the A27-A283-B2139.
The site is owned by Brownsword Hotels and access is restricted to guests with reservations for an overnight stay or dining in the restaurant. Visible from the church of St Michael and a public footpath off Church Street.
There is a car park.
