Located in the heart of Rye on the Kent/East Sussex border, and just five minutes from the beach at Camber Sands, The George in Rye dates back from 1575. Popular with bridal couples for its 'laid-back luxury' style, welcoming atmosphere and great food and drink, the venue is available on an exclusive or non-exclusive basis. The George appeals to couples looking to create a sophisticated occasion with a relaxed 'house-party' vibe. The elegant Georgian ballroom seats up to 120 people and boasts a minstrels’ gallery, chandeliers, large bay windows and silk hand-painted wallpaper. Adjacent to the Ballroom, the 17th century Benson room is ideal for smaller weddings, or can be used as an ante-room prior to the ballroom being unveiled. Both rooms are licensed for the wedding ceremony, or guests may wish to take advantage of Rye Town Hall, which is under a minute’s walk from the Hotel. The pretty courtyard garden is the ideal spot for welcome drinks if the weather is fair, and these can easily be relocated to the Benson room in the event of inclement weather. There are 34 beautiful, individually-designed ensuite bedrooms to choose from, including a choice of ‘bridal suites’ for the wedding couple. The medieval town of Rye offers countless magical photo opportunities amongst the cobbled streets, Tudor buildings, castles and 12th century church yard.
