Rye is a town in East Sussex Wikivoyage Icon.

See

The docks by the river.

Rye also has a 12th-century church, overlooking the town.

The old town town centre is very picturesque with its extreme cobblestone roads (ensure you wear sensible shoes), its many timber-framed houses, and the occasional traditional—though now slightly touristy—tearooms where you can enjoy cream tea.

There are many places which overlook the local scenery, from Rye Castle you can see out to Dungeness. Recently wind turbines have been placed near to Rye, which has changed the nature of the landscape.

Do

  • Walk around the docks mentioned above, visit the many shops.
  • Climb the church tower to get a magnificent view over Rye and its surroundings.
  • Walk across the meadows to the ruins of Camber Castle (open on summer weekends; check with its owner, the English Heritage).
  • Visit Ypres tower and have a chat with the elderly gentleman who has been keeping it open for visitors for the last 15 years. Get locked in in one of its small, dark cells!
