The George in Rye Logo Book

One of England’s best-preserved medieval towns, Rye is a maze of cobbled streets and tiny passageways.  It is home to Henry James’ Lamb House, its church is nearly a millennium old, and its former defence, the Ypres tower, dates from 1250.  Climb the church spire at St Mary’s church, visit the many art galleries or talk a walk at Rye Harbour nature reserve.  These are just some of the many things to do in rye.

After a fire on 20th July, we have had to temporarily close The George hotel and restaurant. We are working hard to make the necessary repairs, and will reopen as soon as we possibly can. For more information and updates on our refurbishment, please give us a follow on Facebook or Instagram, or sign up to our newsletter. We thank you for your support, Alex, Katie and The George team.
