A day in Rye

One of Henry and I's favourite things to do is a weekend away, a break from Brighton to see the other wonders of this country. For Henrys birthday at the end of May I surprised him with a trip to Rye staying in a Airbnb called The Hideout and spending the day in the beautiful Rye. Find out more about our time at The Hideout here, but for now Rye...

If you have ever heard or search for Rye you will know about Mermaid street. One of the most photogenic roads I have seen in england; laid with cobbled streets and beautifully named and decorated homes covered in seasonal flowers. 

Once at the top of the hill you can then find yourself at this stunning church, and alongside this a beautiful castle. A castle which, at the peak, you can see across the whole of Rye; from the winding streets to the flowing dock. Cannons line the outside and there is even a pub nestled underneither the castle walls (unfortuantely it was closed when we were there but we can't wait to head back)

To end our visit we went to this classic, and the oldest, tearoom. The whole thing was decorated with classic elements and sold everything from chocolate mice and cake slices, lunch dishes to cream tea. 

We decided to share a cream time and it was delicious. The scones were light and crumbly and served with, and this is harder than it sounds, the perfect amount of jam and cream. 

It was a great visit to a new part of England, we will definitely be heading back soon along with lots of other cities in this country.
