Fodor's Expert Review Lamb House

Rye Historic Home

Something about Lamb House, an early-18th-century dwelling, attracts writers. The novelist Henry James lived here from 1898 to 1916, while E. F. Benson, one-time mayor of Rye and author of the witty Lucia novels (written in the 1920s and 1930s), was a later resident. The ground-floor rooms contain some of James's furniture and personal belongings.
