Hythe is one of the famous historic Cinque Ports. Its impressive historic Parish Church, St. Leonard’s, famous for its ossuary, and old houses in the narrow hilly streets above the town, contrast with the spacious promenade overlooking the vast expanse of safe bathing and fishing beaches.
Renowned in the past for its Cinque Port Fleet, providing ships for king and country, fishing boats still come in every day bringing fresh fish that can be purchased at Fisherman’s Beach.
In our High Street and surrounding areas shops large and small will attract you with their choice and courtesy as will the numerous selection of hotels, restaurants and pubs attract you with their quality accommodation, food and drink.
Recreational facilities to suit all tastes are to be found in and around Hythe – golf, tennis, bowls, swimming and boating, or for the less energetic take a stroll along the banks of the Royal Military Canal or a ride on the world’s smallest public railway.
The 2020 Festival is a community event for Hythe town and its surrounding areas. The majority of events are free to attend and is organised by a very enthusiastic group of local people, for the people.
Planning has been underway since October 2018, to develop existing events and introduce new ones.
The Hythe Festival committee aims to provide a fully accessible festival. Hythe is working towards being a Demelza Friendly Community. If you have any special needs or require further advice or assistance when visiting the festival, please contact us via the Contacts page.
