A tour into historic Rye , one of the most unspoilt coastal towns in the country . Rye is small , perfectly preserved and bursting with history , from its place as one the " ancient towns " in Norman times , supporting the " cinque ports" , formed to protect the coast and trade with other countries . Rye became notorious for smuggling and the infamous Hawkhurst gang were known to operate here . Small enough to have largely escaped modern development yet with a wealth of history , this should be a great day out for all ( suitable for children aged 10 plus ) The Rye Jazz Festival is also on this weekend which adds an extra layerof interest :-) All my tours are only £5 per person and children go free - Look forward to seeing you there Nick Rye is only 90 minutes away from Brighton on the train and a discounted ticket will only cost around £ 10 return .
It's most famous stretch of beach in the country - every summer thousands of tourists flock to the seaside here to enjoy the pier , zip wire , electric train and badly cooked bbq's . But that's just its recent history - the further back you go the more interesting it becomes . Join me in the Southern Belle Theatre in Hove with a drink at your elbow as we take an entertaining virtual tour through the long history of the beach , from bathing machines to nudist beaches , strolls on the promenade to mods and rockers fighting on the front . Tickets for this show are limited to 40 and are £6.50 each . £2.00 from every ticket sale will go to the "Save Madeira Terrace" campaign . You can book tickets through the link on this page and once you have booked there is no need for a physical ticket as your name will be on my list .
Brighton has always been photogenic - it was where the great film pioneers made their home and since then it has featured in all manner of films , from "Carry On At Your Convenience " to "Mirrormask" and "Downs Terrace" . Join me in the wonderful location of St Andrews Church in Hove for a virtual tour around the film locations of the city . Using movie clips , pictures and anecdotes , we will track down some of the great and not so great ( Cuffs" anyone ? ) movies that have been shot with Brighton as a backdrop , including Oh What A Lovely War Mona Lisa Quadraphenia Brighton Rock ( twice ) Wimbledon and many more - tickets are £6.50 and can be bought by RSVP'ing here - once you have paid there's no need for a physical ticket - your name will be on the list . Suitable for children over 14 .
Cissbury Ring , just outside Worthing , is the largest Iron Age hill fort in Sussex , over 60 acres . 900 years ago it was used as a flint mine . It is associated with old Sussex legend as well - stories of dragons , fairies and devils . Join me for a summer walk around this ancient site and discover its secrets . All my tours are only £5 per person and children go free - Look forward to seeing you there Hello , some detailed info for those driving or coming by bus - the best place to meet will be Storrington Rise Car park , which you can see on this map http://my.viewranger....
