Where the countryside meets the sea…
Hythe is a picturesque market town on the south coast of Kent nestled between the Romney Marsh and the North Downs. The quiet charm of the town belies its turbulent history as one of the most significant ports in England, providing men and ships to the Royal Fleet.
The Royal Military Canal, built as a defence against the threat of invasion from Napoleon, is now a tranquil stretch of water providing fishing, boating, cycle paths, and places to picnic.
So whether you’re visiting on holiday or just looking for a great day out, Hythe has something to offer – from steam-powered train rides to beach barbeques, free concerts to food festivals and horrible histories to tea and tiffin.
