Getting There

This is a circular walk of around 3 miles around Hythe town in Kent, visiting St Leonard's Church and Ossuary, the shops and inns of the High Street, the Royal Military Canal and local history rooms. It also takes you along the seafront promenade to Fisherman's Beach and a view of the historic Martello Towers. It is all on well-made roads and paths but there is a long and steep ascent, then descent, at the beginning. Apart from some steps there are no obstacles and it is fairly easy walking. At a leisurely pace and with time for viewing the sights you should allow 1.5 hours, plus any extended time you want to spend at the church or the history rooms.

The walk starts and finishes in Red Lion Square where all buses stop, either from Folkestone and Dover in one direction or Romney and Dymchurch in the other. The National Express coach service from London to Dover also stops in Red Lion Square. There is also a pay and display car park behind the Red Lion pub on the other side of the canal by the green. This can be accessed via Portland Road, off Dymchurch Road. Approximate post code for car park CT21 6JB.
