  • Romney Marsh

    Smuggling was once a popular pastime on Romney Marsh and still retains an air of mystery and romance. Discover its secrets – explore its beautiful Norman and medieval churches, unspoilt country pubs and wildlife havens for heron, kingfisher and the large and vociferous Romney Marsh frog. Watch for unusual migrants in the remote wilds of the Dungeness Nature Reserve, or climb to the top of the old lighthouse.You may be seduced by the golden sands at Dymchurch but don’t miss out on the enchanting Romney, Hythe and Dymchurch miniature steam railway which puffs, in places, beside the Royal Military Canal, built, with the Martello Towers, to repel Napoleonic invaders. On the hills above, elephants, lions and rhino roam at the Port Lympne Wild Animal Park, while at Woodchurch, spring lambs frolic happily at the South of England Rare Breeds Centre.
    Here are isolated churches from medieval times. Miles of winding lanes, quiet and level with long views across unspoilt countryside, make walking and cycling a real pleasure. Centuries-old village inns offer a warm welcome - and tales of local legend and history, too. Some people describe the Marsh as wild and desolate - the sixth continent.
