£27.50 per person
Perched on a hill, the medieval town of Rye is the sort of place you thought existed only in your imagination.

It’s small enough to make you feel at home almost straight away but holds enough secret treasures to entice you to stay longer.
You’ll find quality independent retailers not seen in large shopping conplexes. Luxury products, antiques, books, records and artisan goods are Rye’s speciality. Art and photography galleries are evidence of a flourishing creative community.
