Rye Town Model


    The Rye Heritage Centre is housed in a converted 19th century sail loft by Strand Quay.

    Although currently closed because of Covid restrictions the Rye Heritage Centre will offer heritage education and interpretation through the Town Model (a vintage, hand built 1:100 scale model of Victorian Rye that uses dramatic sound and light effects to bring to life 700 years of Rye’s rich history and folklore) and linking the model story, digital interpretation and traditional displays to provide visitors with a unified experience.   We hope this will encourage visitors encouraging to continue their exploration of the Town’s significant history.

    The website is currently being updated but look here for further updates about opening times and attractions.
