Rye’s walk involves some cobbled streets and some steep(ish!) gradients and uneven surfaces. However, the walks are at an easy and relaxed pace and can be enjoyed whatever the weather. We do recommend sensible shoes.
Booking in advance is recommended, however you’re more than welcome to turn up and pay cash on the day. If you would rather pay in advance, please let us know and we shall send you a link to pay via PayPal.
Walks will go ahead come rain or shine. However, please make sure you’re wearing sensible clothing and footwear as it can get pretty slippy, especially when wet.
If you are interested in the history of the area then we can tailor a walk for you. For example, come and explore beautiful Winchelsea – a remarkable planned medieval town (just 2 miles from Rye). We can take you on a fascinating 2 hour walk to include the amazing hidden wine cellars, fortified gateways and spectacular church of St Thomas the Martyr. Or in this year in the 950th anniversary of the Battle of Hastings, why not come and take an expert guided walk around the battlefield site – to include key areas which are not interpreted by English Heritage – and gain a unique insight into the most amazing and dramatic battle in English history. For more details, please see our private walks page.
Of course! However, due to the terrain, some parts of the walks aren’t suitable for buggies. Alternative routes are available so please get in touch if you would like to come on a walk.
The terrain of both walks make wheelchair and mobility scooter access difficult – however, we are more than willing to accommodate, so please get in touch if you would like to come on a walk as alternative routes are available.
Yes! Well behaved dogs are more than welcome on a lead.
