This medieval walled city of Rye, England, is very compact and fun to walk through. In sight of the English Channel, it has interesting shops, cobblestoned streets, buildings dating to the 15th century and Henry James' home, Lamb House. Rye is located 50 mi/80 km southeast of London.
Outside of town on the beach lies Henry VIII's Camber Castle (head there on foot for a good walk).
You might find Rye a bit touristy. If so, opt for Winchelsea, a planned 13th-century town nearby that is just as pretty.
