Shepway District, comprising Folkestone, Hythe and Romney Marsh is engrossed with history, famous names and amazing architecture.
Folkestone is home to the Eurotunnel, which puts Europe on your doorstep in 35 minutes. The wonderful town consists of glorious views and footpaths, particularly from the cliff top promenade of The Leas, down to the town’s award winning coastal park. Proposals for a major redevelopment of the harbour and seafront include a marina, shops, seafront restaurants and new homes.
The Cinque Port town of Hythe offers just about every kind of sporting experience from golf to swimming, angling and kite-flying. It is well known for its Venetian Fete with decorated floats on the Royal Military Canal, music, funfair and fireworks. It is also home to Kent’s only racecourse.
Operating along the 14 miles from Hythe to Dungeness is the world’s smallest miniature public railway which provides a scenic ride across the Romney Marsh. Visit the Old Lighthouse and museum at Dungeness.
