THE PERFECT WAY TO START YOUR VISIT TO RYE…
Housed in a converted 19th century sail loft on the Quayside, RYE HERITAGE CENTRE is the home of the ‘Story of Rye’ Town Model Sound and Light Show – a totally unique ‘Son et Lumiere’ style 1:100 scale model of Victorian Rye that uses dramatic sound and light effects that brings to life over 700 years of Rye’s rich history and folklore.
In our visitor centre, you can also book onto a Guided Walk of the town, hire an Historical or Ghost themed Audio Tour to help you explore the town at your own pace, pick up a copy of the Rye Town Trail or browse our extensive selection of Local Maps and Books to help you make the most of your time in our picturesque historic town.
Throughout the year, we run unique guided Ghost Walks of Rye, and can help organise private Guided Walks of the town.
On our first floor, we are home to one of the UK’s largest collections of working pre-decimal amusement machines in the Old Pier Penny Arcade
Finally, don’t forget to visit our Gift Shop; we have a wide variety of exclusive Rye souvenirs as well as local 1066 Country and Sussex art, crafts and produce.
