Wild Rye: Discover Our Wetland Wildlife

Marsh Frog


The Rye Bay Countryside is easy to find no matter where you live. Rye Harbour itself is 1.4 miles south-east of Rye, signposted off the A259 on the Rye/Winchelsea road (TQ 941 189).

From the east, Rye is 20 miles from Ashford along the A259; from the west we're just a short trip (14 Miles) from Hastings, again along the A259. From central London follow the M20 to Ashford, then take the A259 to Rye.

If you are walking from Rye to Rye Harbour there is a footpath along an old railway line that avoids walking the whole length of the road. See the map.
