One of East Sussex's most popular locations, Rye is a half-timbered medieval town full of unique shops.

Rye, East Sussex, England


This beautifully preserved medieval harbour town is popular with writers, artists and holidaymakers alike.
In the cobbled Mermaid Street is the Mermaid Inn, once a meeting place for smugglers.
A great place to sample traditional English food and enjoy a good lunch at a historic pub or fish and chips on the wharf at one of the many characterful restaurants and cafes.
Climb the tower of the 900-year-old St Mary's Church and enjoy the spectacular views over the tiled roofs of the city.
Rye is about 1.5 hours southeast of London.
