Rye is a medieval town in East Sussex with historic roots and charm which make it a popular destination for visitors. The cobbled lanes reveal beautifully preserved Medieval, Tudor and Georgian buildings some of which have opened their doors as restaurants, pubs and tea rooms.
Enjoy beautiful views from the tower of St Mary’s Church– Winchelsea to the west, the meeting point of the rivers Rother and Tillingham, the terracotta roofs and the secret passages- no wonder it’s Rye is referred to as a medieval gem!
Art and photography galleries show there is a flourishing creative community- Rye holds one of the Top 10 small festivals in the country- Rye Arts Festival. The Rye Harbour Nature Reserve attracts walkers and takes visitors through miles of shingle beaches, grassland and salt marsh bordering lakes and pools with a variety of wildlife.
The town is small enough to be able to explore in a day and interesting enough to make you go back for more.
