Information for Groups


Here at RYE HERITAGE CENTRE,  we specialise in welcoming groups of any age, nationality and size to Rye, and discount group rates on our Story Of Rye Town Model Sound and Light Show are available for groups of 10 or more.

Special group entry rates for 2020/21


The Town Model show makes an excellent introduction to the town, and is available in :





Each show lasts approximately 20 minutes, however we recommend allowing 30 minutes per viewing to allow time for introductions, time to look at the model and answer any questions.

Town Model shows are available on a first come, first served basis throughout our standard opening hours. We are happy to accommodate groups of 20 or more outside our standard opening hours subject to prior arrangement.

Pre-booking is strongly recommended to guarantee that the show is available at the time and in the language preferred, and is essential for groups of more than 40 people and visits outside standard opening hours.

The maximum capacity of our Town Model theatre is 40 people, and we recommend that groups larger than this have multiple viewings. On our first floor, we have one of the UK’s largest collections of working antique Old Pier Penny Arcade amusement machines, and this makes an excellent attraction for those waiting to see the show.

We can also advise on coach parking, planning your itinerary in Rye and beyond,  help arrange English Cream Tea experiences and private Guided Tours of the town and have a wealth of quizzes, trails and maps available.
