Epic Rye and Dungeness Weekender

There is no other location in the UK quite like Dungeness. With its dilapidated boats, weathered wooden huts, long shingle beach and imposing lighthouse which looms large on the horizon, this is a photographer’s favourite. In contrast the quaint village of Rye is postcard-pretty image of rural England- full of photographic challenges and opportunities.


Saturday -

Arriving into Rye station, we'll head to our accommodation to drop off bags. After a lesson on capturing atmospheric landscapes, we'll take a short taxi ride to Dungeness. We'll take photography walk along the beach of Dungeness and visit some local highlights including Derek Jarman’s cottage which is set back from the beach among a lovely garden. After a lunch of locally caught fish at the pub on the beach we'll capture some images of the abandoned fishing boats and ecclectic architecture on the beach at sunset. We'll then return to Rye for dinner and a review of the day's images.

Sunday -

After breakfast we'll meet for the short walk across the atmospheric Rye Harbour Nature Reserve to photograph the ruins of the Henry VIII era Camber Castle. Back in Rye, we'll have a light lunch in a local tea room before completing some photo challenges around the town's picturesque streets and viewpoints. After a review of the day's images over a pint in a cosy pub, it's time to catch the train!
