Built in 1742, the elegant Georgian Town Hall in Rye is a unique venue for your ceremony. A historic setting in the heart of Rye, the Town Hall is within walking distance over the cobbled streets, to a number of local reception venues. The Town Hall provides a stunning back drop for photographs to remember your day, as well as being close to a number of beautiful settings including the Gun Gardens, Churchyard and Mermaid Street, which offer delightful photo opportunities.
In addition to this beautiful venue, Rye Town Council is pleased to offer you the services of the Town Crier. They will greet your guests on arrival and announce you at the start of the ceremony. Afterwards, from the steps of the Town Hall, they will deliver a traditional wedding 'cry' to your gathered guests, proclaiming your marriage to the town.
We accommodate ceremonies of every size, from a maximum of 75 guests down to none! For smaller ceremonies (up to 20 guests) we have the option of a more intimate setting around the chamber’s marble fireplace. For couples wanting to marry somewhere special, but without any guests, we are usually even able to provide witnesses if required.
Please note that the main chamber, where ceremonies take place, is on the first floor accessed via stairs. Wheelchair access is limited – please contact us for more information.
