things to do in rye

Great Dixter in nearby Northiam (15 minutes drive) was the family home of gardener Christopher Lloyd – which now, under the stewardship of Fergus Garrett and the Great Dixter Charitable Trust, is a place of pilgrimage for horticulturists from across the world. A Tudor house with a famous twentieth century Arts and Crafts garden, Great Dixter was bought in 1910 by Nathaniel Lloyd, author of books on brickwork and topiary, and was restored by Edwin Lutyens. Nathaniel designed the framework of the garden and it has been planted with great flair by his son, Christopher Lloyd.
