This is the part of the old fortification that is left standing today and dates back to 1249.

Once it was used for as a prison but now it is a museum.

During the 14th century Rye's defences were strengthened with stone walls and 4 gateways after the town was destroyed in 1377 by the French.

Only the Landgate still stands and sadly no remains of the original Norman Castle.

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
