Rye History Walks work with schools all over East Sussex and the South East offering students (and teachers!) the chance to get out of the classroom for the day by coming on a fascinating tour of one of England’s finest medieval towns. Having been a history teacher for over 20 years (please see the “Your Guide” page), Mike is very experienced in teaching his subject to all ages and is passionate about bringing the past to life and enthusing children of all ages and abilities.
Coming to Rye and going on one of Rye History Walk’s “Get out of The Classroom!” days is a perfect way to combine education with fun – and in a beautiful, authentic historic setting with so much history to tell, Rye is a perfect location for a local study option. The route taken around the town is both safe and practical for teaching groups of all sizes. Walks can be adapted to suit KS1-5 and can involve a tour of the ancient Mermaid Inn, as well as potentially involving a Living History experience too. Walks also come complete with tailor made resources for your students to complete as part of their trip.
