Overview

Rye House Gatehouse

The Gatehouse is in some ways an example of medieval bling – as part of 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. 

The detail and craftsmanship you’ll see in features like the oriel windows and stonework are really outstanding. Climb the winding stairs to the viewing platform and you can also appreciate the amazing barley twist chimneys.

And whilst you’re here, visit the nearby Rye House Quay on the River Lee Navigation – a lovely spot to linger in or to have your picnic!

Groups can pre-arrange visits, and there are special event days too. Contact the Information Service on 03000 030 610 or info@leevalleypark.org.uk
