The South East England region
Whether you are young or old there is something for everyone in Rye. You will find the ancient town of Rye once surrounded by sea, played an important part in the defense of the South coast of England; today it is still important for the local fishing fleet which is a key part of the town. As a medieval town, royalty frequently visited Rye; with Queen Elizabeth I visiting in 1573 when she bestowed the title of ‘Rye Royale’ after staying for three days. Even today it continues to attract famous artists, writers and celebrities to the area.
Rye is a popular town, small enough to discover the key places of interest over a weekend but with plenty of secret treasures to entice you to stay much longer and to return again. There are plenty of places to visit immediately on your doorstep, whatever your interests. Whether you enjoy walking along a beach, browsing round the town, relaxing in a traditional teashop or just catching up with friends. Leave the car at home and walk into the town, as you are only a short walk to the main High Street where parking can be difficult. Why not take a slow stroll around the galleries and antique shops by the Strand Quay, following The Strand up to The Mint where your find even more shops of all descriptions. In the main High Street there are numerous places to eat, if you want a snack, full meal, traditional English cream tea, or if you are just missing your favourite coffee. The high street with it’s half-timbered house, reached via West Street, where Thomas House stands out, most impressive, however, are the brick Old Grammar School (1635) and the George Hotel, constructed at the beginning of the 18th century. In Lion Street, to the left, tea can be taken at ‘Simon the Pieman's’ For the best view of the town you need to climb up to the clock tower of St Mary’s church found at the end of Lion Street; from here you can look over the roof tops of the houses to one of the three rivers running through the fields below. The parish church of St Mary dates back to as early as the12th century though renovated several times. The clock, was made in Winchelsea in 1561, is thought to be one of the oldest in the country.
For those interested in literature Lamb’s House can be found at the end of West Street. The home of the American writer Henry James from 1898 – 1916, the house dates from the 18th century and is a fine brick fronted house boasting a large walled garden a hidden treasure you wouldn’t expect to find within the centre of Rye.
For those who are more energetic, Rye Habour Nature Reserve is an enjoyable walk full of wildlife for the birdwatcher or nature lover. Or if you prefer a beach walk you could continue onto Winchelsea beach pass the lifeboat house and on. Camber Sands with its miles of sandy beaches with its picturesque dunes it is also very popular with wind and kite surfers though also a great place to walk. The mass of kites flying high can be seen as you approach the far end of the beach. There are several companies in the area offering courses either for children within a secure lake or adults at all levels.
The town is always busy with many different events happening throughout the year, why not check for yourself a timetable of events can be found on our website and time your holiday with an event.

"Excellent accomodation and location"
My husband and two children, age four and seven, stayed at Rye View for a week and had an excellent time.
The three-storey town house is beautifully kept and extremely well equipped (I was able to do a couple of loads of washing and hang them out while away to save a job when I got home). Lovely touches, such as biscuits and wine plus handmade soaps, made us feel very welcome.
The property has a good size open-plan kitchen, dining room and living room, a nice patio garden, two bedrooms and a bathroom plus downstairs loo. There's also a garage that's handy for storage.
A short walk along the harbour (past an excellent fish and chip shop and several cafes) takes you to the town centre, which is so full of character we felt as though we were in a historical novel. The town has a lovely mix of heritage attractions (a model town show at the tourist centre; Ypres Tower; St Mary's Church; and a museum, although this is only open at weekends), antique and gift shops to poke around in and wonderful tea shops. For children, there's a lovely playground and a great shop called Crafty Magic, which has workshops and drop in craft activities, where you an escape from the rain.
Rye is also an ideal base to get to Cambersands (a beautiful beach), the Battle of Hastings site and Dover Castle, which is the best castle I've ever been to.
To summarise, both Rye and Rye View were lovely places to visit and stay and the whole family had an excellent holiday.
