School Records was established in Rye in
1991 and is one of the leading independent record
shops in the U.K. Situated in the historic Thomas
Peacocke grammar school building, built in 1636,
it is a unique setting for a record shop.
Rye, with a population of 5,000,
is one of Britainís finest medieval towns and
a favourite with tourists from around the world.
There is ample parking in the town, with some
free parking outside Grammar School Records in
Rye high street. The shop is open seven days a
week from 10 to 5.30 Monday to Saturday and from
11 to 5.30 on Sundays.
We currently have some 20,000 LPs
in stock, covering Rock & Pop, Jazz, Folk,
Blues, Reggae, Easy Listening, World Music, Comedy,
Classical, Spoken Word, Musicals and Soundtracks.
In addition, we have 20,000 7inch singles as well
as substantial CD and cassette sections, not forgetting
the largest selection of 8-track cartridges in
the country! We are currently in the process of
listing collectible records on this site. If you
