A Virtual Tour of Rye

    • Nick Richmond, Guided Tours in Brighton & Sussex

Pirates, Ports and Pugwash

Following a very interesting, recent talk on underground Brighton, we are delighted to welcome back Nick Richmond for another of his virtual guided tours.

This time, Nick will lead us on a virtual journey around historic Rye, one of the most unspoilt coastal towns in the country.

Rye is a small, perfectly preserved town that is bursting with history - from its place as one of the "ancient towns" in Norman times, it supported the Cinque Ports and was developed to protect the coast and trade with other countries.

Rye also became notorious for smuggling and the infamous Hawkhurst gang was known to operate here!
