Take a trip to the past as you explore the Rye House Gatehouse: one of the first brick built houses in the country and boasting outstanding decoration. This was a structure that was meant to project power, prestige and wealth and is eminently explorable for you and the kids today!

And whilst you're visiting, explore the groups and take a trip to the nearby Rye House Quay on the River Lee Navigation: a lovely spot to linger in or to have your picnic!

School and other groups can pre-arrange visits, and there are special event days too.
