    I know you said you aren't interested in Camber Sands but there is a cracking cafe on the beach and the beach is a splendid walk.

    EDIT - and if you like Rye then try Whistable, and even better seaside place.

      For a walk, the military canal is okay.

      I’m just thinking of timing and weather. But I’ll certainly consider maybe for a bite on the day I head back.

      Make sure you climb the tower at St. Mary's Church - the view is well worth it. If you can make it just out to Rye Harbour, the lifeboat station and memorial to The Mary Stanford is worth it too. (An utter tragedy in 1928 that took the lives of nearly all the adult men of the village in Rye Harbour, if you haven't heard of it.)

      Your main walk wise, Google the route, and I would say walk west (staying in Sussex) via Winchelsea and Fairlight to Hastings Country Park, down to Hastings Old Town and get the train back - it's a very good walk
      I’ve not heard of the Mary Stanford but that is def going on the list.

      For food - The Landgate Bistro is excellent and for a nice bracing walk, the nature reserve at Rye Harbour.

      Will def be visiting the harbour and was hoping to get a bite to eat there too so I will check that out. Thanks!

      I think doing a solo trip it’s important to get a little itinerary together or one can end up wandering about aimlessly and the time disappears.

      Two days in Rye? TripAdvisor is your friend. Tho you might be hard pushed for things to do on the second day

      Struggling to see the problem here tbh.

      Ha! Well the suggestions so far would fill up a fair bit of two days. Obvs tripadvisor is a good resource but as NSC has shown in the past, personal recommendation goes a long way. Plus you can come back on here after and lambast people for the terrible suggestions they made!!

      With aimless wandering? Yes, agree, it is a good thing but just want a few pointers so I don’t get back and go “doh! Wish I’d seen that”. Don’t get much time off work or get away often so wanna make the most of it.

      Edit: just read your edit, haha! There will be pubs. Of course!
