Lion St Rye runs from St Marys church down to the High street and gives access to Church square, Watchbell street, Lamb house and the Ypres public house with the nice garden

In Lion street you will find antique book shops, rare antiques and some excellent clothing shops.

The Kino Digital Cinema is at the top on the right hand side where you can enjoy a glass of wine whilst watching the latest movies of a play from anywhere in the World.

Simon the Pie-man has been providing light refreshments at the top of the road next to the town hall and to the rear they have a lovely garden space that’s ideal in the summer to pass some time.

Rye Town hall was built in 1742 and well worth have a look at if it’s open.
