Rye Bay has much to offer for all ages all year round

Rye in Sussex is renowned for the calm and relaxed character of a medieval Cinque Ports town. Steeped in history Rye is much loved by locals and visitors alike.

Theatre, Cinema, beaches forests and fine dining await you whilst our local shops and restaurants are sure to please.


The vibrant local economy offers an alternative and relaxed shopping experience. Rye is a well kept fascinating small town with many things to see and do in the area.

Some destinations delight in hosting wild noisy parties. Thankfully the Rye Bay area is more suited to the mature end of the spectrum. Children are welcome at a wide variety of destinations whilst others are exclusively adults only.
