A hill township, that exercises the calf muscles and strengthens the ankle tendons as you wobbled over the cobbles. Relatively unspoilt even by the coach loads of Americans, on a it's Tuesday, it must be Tilling tour. Invaded and debate-ably conquered by Queen Lucia, the town is the stagescape of E F Bensons books, yet to receive the Routledge treatment. Lots of views, streets, castle gates and townhouses seen on the TV, and ready to be verified for real. For followers of TV, this is a fascinating day out. but where is crokked chimmney house?

Taking the tour of Rye with Allan was the highlight of our recent visit- his knowledge and enthusiasm for the writer and the town really brought the books to life. Invaluable knowledge gained, I would highly reccomend

We had a great tour of Rye. E.F. Benson and his family were such interesting people. Allan was very knowledgeable and personable.

I absolutely love Rye, or "Tilling" as E F Benson called it in his Mapp and Lucia books. I could live here! I've been to Lamb House four times now, and this past two times the whole house was open to the ever-adoring public. Photos are allowed now! Hurrah!
