About Rye

Regarded by many as the prettiest town in England, Rye is a very popular place to visit along the south coast of England in Sussex. Standing on a hill, Rye is full of pretty pictures, with its winding cobbled streets and old timber framed buildings and windmill. Once an important harbour town in Sussex, Rye now lies 2 miles inland from the sea as a result of a changing coast line. Burnt down by the french in 1377 and again in 1448 the fortified town of Rye has had a turbulent history leaving it with a mix of buildings dating from the 15th through to the 18th century.
