30th March to 2nd April 2020. Club walking holiday to Rye, East Sussex

We are arranging another Club holiday, this time to Rye in East Sussex.

Rye is a medieval town not far from the coast, perched on a hill with an unhurried atmosphere and enchanting streets draw visitors with their warm welcome. Cobbled streets and narrow passages reveal architectural treasures among beautifully preserved Medieval, Tudor and Georgian buildings.

At the far end of one of these cobbled streets is the Hope Anchor Hotel where we will be staying. Full English breakfast and a three course dinner is included.

After travelling on Monday morning, we plan to visit the ‘Story of Rye’ which uses dramatic sound and light to bring to life over 700 years of the town’s rich history and folklore. This will be followed by a short local walk.

On the Tuesday and Wednesday there will be a choice of longer and shorter walks in the delightful East Sussex countryside of about ten miles and six miles in the local area.

Before setting off for home on the Thursday afternoon there will be a short walk.

Anybody not wanting to walk on any of the days will find plenty to do in this charming old town or can travel by train to Hastings, Bexhill or Eastbourne for the day.

Travel to Rye can either be by car (about 2¾ hours from Bedford) or by train, which takes a little less than 2½ hours via the High Speed, train from St Pancras to Ashford. It’s cheaper but quite a bit longer not using the High Speed train.

The cost of rooms remains the same whatever the occupancy. The price for dinner and breakfast will be £90.00 per person in total for the three days.
