I've been a "lurker" for about a year, and haven't posted because all of my questions are usually answered by reading the forum and doing a bit of homework. But now I'm taking the plunge. I am going to London from mid-May to early June. I have already booked a flat I have stayed at before in an area I love. I would like to go to Rye for a day. I know that as far as transportation, it is doable in a day, and I've looked at the Rye forum to see what I'll find when I get there. What I would really like to know is if I would need to stay overnight or can it be done as a day trip. My thought is that if I find it fascinating, I can go back another time for a longer stay. I won't be planning side trips from there - I would just like to see Rye.
