ALL EVENTS ON HYTHE TOWN COUNCIL LAND HAVE BEEN POSTPONED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE ON GOVERNMENT ADVICE
Welcome to Hythe Town Council
Hythe, the Head Cinque Port, is set on the beautiful Kent coast where the quiet charm of many of the Cinque Port towns belies their important and sometimes violent role in the development of the nation’s seafaring and naval traditions.
Some survive as working ports. Indeed, Dover is a major international transport hub, others, like Hastings, maintain their historic role as centres of inshore fishing. New Romney, Winchelsea and Tenterden, in particular, have been stranded well inland by the retreating sea.
It is sometimes hard to believe that all were once amongst the most significant ports in England but by the 21st century, most of the Cinque Port towns have diversified well beyond their seafaring origins, but all repay the visitor with fascinating glimpses of their colourful past and its continuing influence upon the local, regional and national identity.
