West Hythe Amenities
There’s plenty to do out and about in West Hythe, from walks by the canal to whiling away your days playing golf, there’s so much for you to go out and explore.
Hythe is a small, costal market town on the edge of Romney Marsh, meaning that there’s a whole host of activities to fill your mornings, afternoons and even dinner times with. The Romney, Hythe and Dymchurch Railway is a real favourite among tourists and locals alike, operating steam and internal combustion locomotives running from Cinque Port in Hythe to Dungeness. The line is 13 ½ miles long and is perfect for a day out, stopping at Dymchurch, St. Mary’s Bay, New Romney and Romney Sands along the way.
Alongside beautiful walks along the coast, the Royal Military Canal also boasts beautiful scenery and electric boat trips for you to enjoy throughout summer and late autumn. Travel up the canal in style, taking in the natural beauty that Kent has to offer. Nearby, the Hythe Bowling Club is situated in a stunning spot just south of the Royal Military Canal; they welcome new members and are happy to help a newcomer learn the ropes.
Every other year on the 3rd Wednesday in August, the Hythe Venetian Fete is a floating extravaganza of fun, with a procession of decorated floats, live music, entertainment and fireworks. It is a big event in the Hythe calendar and attracts a lot of attention, so definitely worth a visit!
If you want something a little more tranquil, the Littlestone Warren Golf Club is an 18-hole course set in the heart of Hythe. Play a few games with some friends, or become a member and join the club all year ‘round. However you want to putt, the club is friendly, welcoming and always looking for new talent.
You will also be able to visit other local amenities and attractions such as the coastal promenade and a range of shops, banks, restaurants, cafes and antique stores. If you venture out twice a month, you will be able to visit the farmer’s market to buy all of your local produce.
