Welcome to The Rye Bookshop, a dedicated local store set in the heart of this ancient and beautiful coastal town.

We're a quirky bookshop on the bustling High Street, and we pride ourselves on operating with an independent ethos, which we hope does justice to Rye's wonderful literary heritage and eclectic tastes. Though we're small, we've packed in thousands of lovely books covering everything we can think of, from the latest bestsellers through to much-loved children's classics and fascinating non-fiction titles, as well as a specialised local section. We also boast the best view of any Waterstones, though that's just our opinion – come and see for yourself!
