“A fine visit to the kirk and the house of Mastress Mapp”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2012

This tour sealed the deal for us. I had read the E. F. Benson "Mapp and Lucia" novels and have watched the C4 TV series at least three times, so seeing both the original settings and those chosen for the television adaptation was fun.
If you are a Mapp and Lucia fan, do not miss this!

“Benson's Rye”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 29, 2011

Anyone who has read E.F. Benson's Mapp and Lucia books will recognize the setting immediately as he described the town and its buildings very accurately. You can allmost hear the characters talking as you walk around the town.

“Great fun for fans of the books and TV series”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 17, 2011

Entertaining insights into Mapp and Lucia's world and the author and the Rye he knew. Who lived where etc. Includes interesting tour of the church and Benson connections there.
