Taking a ‘Rye History Walk’ will give you a real insight into the key events which makes Rye one of England’s most important historic towns. Come and literally take a walk back through time as your knowledgeable and friendly guide explains Rye’s remarkable role in English History from the 1066 Norman Conquest to the present day. It’s a truly amazing story that will both surprise and entertain!
This very special town has a castle, two striking churches, a medieval friary, a unique Georgian water tower and town hall, a defensive wall, a superbly preserved medieval gateway and so much more to see and appreciate in a wonderful unspoilt setting. There is even a fascinating scale town model and show to be seen at the Heritage Centre (where the Walks begin) and in the wonderful 15th century Mermaid Inn, the town has one of the great old smugglers’ inns and perhaps the most haunted hostelry in the land! Kings, Queens, the Bard, artists, writers, poets & pirates: they have all had a role to play. The story of Rye is, in many respects, England’s history in microcosm!
