What's Rye like?

Think less metropolitan and more historical, Rye in East Sussex is situated at the entrance to three equally beautiful rivers: the Rother, the Tillingham and the Brede. Only two miles from the open sea, in medieval times it was the head of the English and surrounded almost entirely by water. It’ll come as no surprise then that water sports are high on the list of things to do in Rye. Whether it’s a trip to Rye Harbour Nature Reserve, the pristine sandy beach of Camber Sands or the unspoilt and peaceful Winchelsea Beach so something a little more adrenaline-filled such as Full Throttle Boat Charters or Camber Kitesurfing, then Rye has got it covered. There’s surely no better way to experience the true heart of Rye than go on one of the area’s popular walks including Mapp & Lucia's Rye and 1066 Country Walk. To capture the beauty and architectural delights of Rye, venture from the comfort of your hotel and head straight over to St. Thomas the Martyr, St. Mary's Parish Church and Rye Castle Museum.

Tips for Getting Along with Locals in Rye

As it is a civil parish, Rye has deep historical roots along with a whole load of charm, making it a popular destination for tourists. Locals are not only welcoming and inviting, but show their absolute pride in the area by offering advice and guidance where possible. The parish’s surrounding sea was once used to provide ships for the service of the King in time of war, yet these days it is slightly more relaxing and ideal for a spot sightseeing, particularly its fishing fleet and Rye Harbour, which still has facilities for yachts and other vessels. Its long-established connections to the sea, including previously being a fishing port, a naval base, a market town and an agricultural centre, you’d be hard pushed to find an area that is steeped in more historical and cultural wonders. In your stay in Rye you will experience a perfect mix of old and new, you’ll often find the locals in the antique shops, art galleries or simply watching one of its specialities, ceramics, being crafted.
