An ancient town, one of the Cinque ports, but as the coast has moved it now stands inland, it is very picturesque with something to be discovered on every street corner. The town was twice burned in 1377 and 1448 by raiders from Europe. It has a long history and perhaps a good place to start the exploration is the museum. Just one mile south is the pretty fishing port of Rye Harbour.
