Nice little castle with nice character town. This is a small castle but worth a visit. It is located in the old town centre of Rye and this town itself is very nice. Lost some characters recently but can find some nice tea houses too.

My kids really love this tower and we always pop in when we visit Rye. There is a Captain Pugwash trail for the little ones, and you can try out medieval weapons and armour in the dungeon.The view from the top is wonderful. An interactive map helps you visualize how the landscape has shifted over the years with the changing... More

The Castle is really quite small and won't take long to see, but, having said that, it is well worth a visit. The view from the Ypres Tower is spectacular on a clear day and the exhibits are interesting and informative.

This museum is quite small but packed with lots of interesting things. The lady on the door was really informative. Sadly not much for little children. The castle tower is free for children and nice views.

Small local attraction in Rye. The view from the top of the Ypres Tower of the harbour is stunning but there is not much else to see in the museum, which attempts to reflect the long and varied history of this interesting building. Worth a visit though if you are exploring the excellent town of Rye.
