One of my favourite places to blow the cobwebs away is visiting New Romney with its shingle beach and breathing in the clear sea air. The wildlife is amazing especially the RSPB reserve. The Royal Military Canal is 28 miles long and runs through Hythe and New Romney before continuing to Hastings. If you prefer parks then you can visit Brockhill Country Park.
If you enjoy some history, visit The Romney Marsh Wartime collection, the museum is very informative. Art is also a popular feature in New Romney and Hythe. The beautiful landscapes have inspired many artists, painters and photographers.
Why not pay a visit to St Leonards Church in Hythe and see the creepy bones crypt which holds bones dating back to 13th and 15th centuries. Port Lympne animal reserve is on the hill, so you can enjoy the wildlife and the wonderful sea views at the same time.
Romney & Dymchurch Railway is a big tourist attraction for the young and old! Take a ride and then finish the day with a lovely meal at one of the amazing eateries.
Come along and enjoy the shingle beaches, get some sea air and see what this part of Kent has to offer. I know there is loads to do – too much for just one day, so why not book a few days to really enjoy the area. We have some lovely cottages right on the doorstep! Take a look at (EK754) 3 Summer Mews, (EK732) Old Barn Cottage and (EK733) Barn End, these are all lovely family cottages.
