About

 

The "Antient Town" of Rye is one of England's prettiest and most historic towns with the best preserved Medieval town centre in Britain; what better way to discover it than on a walking tour led by an expert guide?

Rye Guided Walks offer a two-hour walking tour around the heart of our quaint, quirky and picturesque little town, revealing the town's amazing hidden history and telling true tales of the smugglers, Kings and Queens, grisly murderers, witches, poets, writers and artists, monks, ghosts and pirates who have all contributed to make Rye the unique and historic place it is today.

Tours include - by special permission of the Town Council - entry into Rye's grade II* listed, 18th century Town Hall, and its secret attic museum containing the infamous Gibbet Cage, skull and pillory, which are not usually accessible to the public! A unique opportunity to view these normally-private relics of Rye's turbulent past!!

Cost: £10 per person, accompanied under 14's free
