“Fantastic selection of photography!”
Review of Purdie Gallery

Purdie Gallery
Ranked #21 of 42 things to do in Rye
Attraction details
Reviewed 18 October 2012

We've been to Rye many times and aways make a point of dropping by the Purdie Gallery. We already have 2 of David Purdie's (the photographer) canvasses at home so we like to check for any new work whenever we're down. There's a beautiful selection of landscape photography, all shot in and around the local area. They sell canvas prints, as well as posters and greetings cards too so there's something to suit everyone's price range. They're one of the only places in Rye that's open every day too! Well worth a visit if you're ever in the area!

My family and I recently spent a very pleasant afternoon in Rye wandering through the town. The highlight for me was the Purdie Gallery which displays a really beautiful selection of photographs. We got talking to David about his pictures and he was happy to spend time chatting to us about how he captures the images. Photography is one of my hobbies so it was a real treat to be able talk to someone that understands so much about the technical stuff and doesn't make it sound dull or too difficult. I left the gallery feeling really inspired to try landscape photography - although I don't expect to be creating big canvases any time soon.

This is a shop. It sells photos. They're very good photos, of Rye, the coastline and countryside of the Weald. But that's all it is. A shop.
