As well as its charm and history, the town has a vibrant, independent range of shops, coffee and tea rooms, pubs and restaurants. A very busy calendar of events throughout the year, including Scallop week, Rye Jazz festival, Rye Arts and Music festival and the wonderful Rye bonfire spectacular.
A good start to any stay in Rye, is a visit to the town’s Heritage Centre. Here you can watch the Town Model’s ‘Sound and Light’ show, which retells Rye’s colourful, historic past. Then take a trip upstairs and play the ‘Old Penny Pier Machines’ and giggle with the ‘Laughing Sailor’ or have your fortune told by ‘Sidney Knows’! If antiques interest you, then visit the Strand Quay where you can wander amongst the small shops and bag yourself a bargain.
For the days when the weather is a little below par, why not visit our Kino cinema, all the latest films and even on occasions, live screening performances of Opera and Ballet from the London theatres. For the sporty among you, there is the Sports centre with pool.
