Owner description: The perfect start to your visit to Rye! The Rye Heritage Centre is the home of the 'Story of Rye' Town Model Sound and Light show, a handmade scale model of Victorian Rye that plays a show that takes you through 700 years of Rye's history. Historic Audio Walking Tours are available for hire, with guided ghost tours available on selected dates during the winter months. The Heritage Centre is also host to a fantastic working collection of Old Pier Penny Arcade amusement machines, and has a wide variety of books and maps on Rye and the surrounding area, as well as exclusive locally made pottery and souvenirs in the gift shop.

A must see is the Rye Heritage Centre. Not just your usual tourist information centre, but an educational centre as well. Lovely display of Rye itself with the story of Rye's history - well worth seeing. And of course the Penny Arcade upstairs in the centre just wonderful.
