Once, long ago, the hill-top town of Rye was an island, surrounded by the rivers Rother, Brede and Tillingham. High above the marshes and the sea lies this beautiful ancient town, with lots of old houses and landmarks. Its pitoresque medieval streets make you think you're back in early 16th century.

Mermaid Street is one of the most characteristic street of Rye.

In early days this was Smuggler's paradise. They all met at the Mermaid Inn to trade their goods.

The Landgate is the only part left of the old gates and city walls.
