Pub crawl in Rye

Location image of event venue


A visit to the charming historic cobbled town of Rye in East Sussex has been planned for Saturday 27th April, with visits to some of its best pubs and an option for lunch probably in the GBG listed Ypres Castle Inn which as the name suggests is next to the castle with a pub garden and fabulous views over the harbour. We will leave Canterbury at 10:42 and spend about 6 hours in Rye. The train journey is just over one hour with a change of trains at Ashford International and the fare if you have a discount card is £10-85 and £16-40 without a card. Return to Canterbury West will be at 19:00 or earlier if you wish to leave the pub crawl before the end.

Below is the pub plan for the day; you can of course leave and rejoin the pub crawl at any time. Extra time at the Ypres Castle Inn allows you to visit the Ypres Tower (admission £4 and £3 for over 65's) and wander around the grounds and take in the views. We are going to try to book a table nearer the time at The Ypres Castle for anybody who wants to eat there. Food is also available at The Globe Inn Marsh for those who fancy an alternative. Details of all pubs can be found on WhatPub and pub menus for The Globe Inn Marsh and The Ypres Castle Inn can be found on their web sites.
