Unfortunately I didn't manage to see anyone going in or out to see which door they used! The Mermaid Inn is a real gem. With beams everywhere and roaring fires in the main bar, plus two guest lounges it was incredibly warm and welcoming. A porter took us to ... more

Rye is a small medieval town in East Sussex., with a population of about 5,000. It is one of the original Cinque Ports, a series of towns along the Kent and Sussex coast formed for military and trade purposes, although Rye itself is 2 miles from the sea. Smuggling has played a huge part of Rye's history. The Mermaid Inn and The Olde Bell Inn were apparently connected by a secret underground passageway from the cellars, and the Ship Inn was built in 1592 as a warehouse to store contraband seized from smugglers. My husband and I recently visited for a weekend, staying at the historic Mermaid Inn. We drove down from London on the Friday night - a fairly easy ... Read the complete review

My wife and I went to Rye a couple of weeks ago (early November) for a two day break and had a fantastic time. We stayed at a beautiful period hotel called Jeakes House on Mermaid Street, which we learned during our stay is one of the most historic (and steep!) roads in the town. The place is full of history and there are a number of listed buildings that date back to the 13th century. Rye really makes you feel like you've stepped back in time a few hundred years and thankfully development in the town is restricted so the High Street is not dominated by chain stores and the skyline is free of modern, high-rise buildings. For those who fancy doing a ... Read the complete review

Rye is a very pleasant place to visit, i spent the day here with my Fiancee and had a great time. There are several tourist oriented things to do which include:- 1) The old penny arcade. This is located on the first floor of the Heritige centre at the heart of Rye, it is great fun and houses a very good collection of old amusement machines from the early 1900's, it will cost you £1 for 7 old pennys which in my opinion is pretty good value for money. The machines probably wont appeal to the xbox and playstation generation much, but they are true classics and definately worth a look. 2) The Rye town model. This is located on the ground ...

Rye is a lovely small town in East Sussex. It used to be a port but silting up means the sea is now a mile or more away. It is well known for the large number of antique shops and if you like that you can spend a day looking round them - and spend a lot of money if you wish. It also a pleasant town just to wander around with some narrow streets and old buildings. It is worth going up to the higher part of the town for the views. You can also walk by the river and for the energetic you could walk to the coast. Shopping and eating tends to be more towards the specialist and therefore somewhat higher priced end of the market. It can be quite busy in summer but its still ... Read the complete review
