Welcome to THE STORY OF Rye
Make sure to visit Rye Heritage Centre and discover over 750 years of our history before you make your own memories – “Today’s memories are Tomorrow’s Heritage. “
Here you can experience the “Story of Rye”, a 15 minute sound and light show featuring the famous Rye Town Model to guide you through the cobbled streets and hidden passages of Rye and enjoy the splendour of our medieval town.
Then as you walk along the real streets of Rye you will know you are following in the footsteps of many who have gone before you…
Kings, Queens, Smugglers, French Invaders, Authors, Monks, Sailors, Fishermen, Artists, Potters, Merchants and Traders – not to mention Murderers!
Rye Heritage Centre is a must for visitors to the historic Cinque port of Rye and is one of the most popular visitor attractions in the region.
