Queen Elisabeth I visited Rye in 1573 [Yes – she slept there!]

Seasons of Rye
So impressed was Her Majesty with the little Cinque Port Town of Rye and the welcome of the townspeople that, on departure, she honoured the town with the title ‘Rye Royal’ – ever since that time, the ancient town of Rye has been giving visitors that special welcome.
Once an island, and still surrounded by sea and marshes, Rye has an atmosphere of a more leisurely, bygone age. History resonates from the whole town with its ancient fortifications and one has only to browse around the quant old cobbled streets with their picturesque Tudor and Elizabethan houses to feel the atmosphere of medieval England . Romantic, relaxing and a real antidote to the stress of modern life.
Chain stores have little foothold here amongst the antique shops, art galleries and privately owned specialist shops. Here you can expect old fashioned, personal service from shopkeepers who actually know their merchandise.
As well as two Best Loved hotels, Rye Lodge in the centre and Flackley Ash Hotel just outside Rye in the lovely Sussex countryside, Rye is an oasis of culinary excellence with many first class restaurants, tea rooms and delightful old inns - many virtually unchanged for over 600 years!
You must visit the Rye Heritage Centre and see the unique Rye Town Model Sound and Light show which brings Rye 's history to life. Ask the Rye Tourist Office for a Rye Town Guide and a Rye Bay Countryside walking pack.
