My parents, husband and I visited here on my Birthday on Friday and really enjoyed it. We found it to be a real hidden treasure, packed full of interesting information. The women's prison (entry through the pretty garden) was great too. Good value for money (and a special rate for students too).

If you visit Rye you will see this attraction. It is quite a well preserved tower building with battlements to the front facing the sea.

Great value, children under sixteen are free and adults £3.00 Well maintained castle with lots of interesting material inside. My son enjoyed trying on the different styles of soldiers helmets. Lovely views of the river. Worth a visit particularly on a rainy day!

Lovely place with an interesting look at history of the smugglers and a very old ex prison. Yes this isn't a huge place and it doesnt take long to look about but if you are interested in local history then its a great place. The views are stunning and the gun garden is nice.
