Rye Town Hall is under a minute’s walk from The George in Rye, situated at the top of Lion Street. The Grade I listed building is steeped in history and replete with original features that will provide excellent backdrops for some timeless wedding photographs.
Arriving at the Town Hall, the wrought-iron gates lead into the Buttermarket, the open area beneath the main Chamber. From here, ancient oak doors lead upstairs to the Main Chamber. This is where the ceremonies take place, surrounded by oak panels detailing in gold leaf the names of the past Mayors of Rye from 1289. Once used as a courtroom, the Main Chamber can accommodate up to 50 people seated (or up to 70 if using the ledges around the room). Maximum capacity is 90 guests (including some standing).
