Cinque Ports, Rye

Visit Rye

Rye is a beautiful town, and there's a lot to see and do here.

Rye Heritage Centre

This is a great place to start your visit. You'll find out about the history of the town, and you can book walking tours, including the guided ghost tour...

Rye Castle Museum

The castle hosts a number of very intersting exhibits, including medieval artefacts, and if you're looking for stunning views, then the balcony of the Ypres Tower is a good place to go!

Lamb House

This house is full of literary history - Henry James bought the house in the late 19th century and wrote three novels here, and E F Benson also lived here. Lamb House was the inspiration for Mallards, the house in his Mapp and Lucia novels.

Rye Arts Festival

With live music, special walks, exhibitions and much more, the Rye Arts Festival is a must-visit!
