Clothing and equipment

Rye Harbour education
Martyn Comley


It is important that all visitors bring suitable clothing with them.

Windproof and waterproof coats and also sturdy shoes are appropriate all year round.

In summer, hats and sunscreen are also necessary.

In winter, warm clothes will make a visit to the exposed beach much more comfortable. Many activities will be away from shelter and therefore they need to be prepared.

Coach companies welcome clean footwear to change into for the return journey.

Please would all children wear a name badge to enable Trust staff to identify them. This can be a sticky label.


All equipment will be provided free of charge but, if broken or damaged during the visit by a school, they will be required to contribute towards the cost of replacing the broken item.
