Hythe Travel guide
Hythe : Michelin's recommendations
The High Street of this Cinque Port town is now about 1km from the modern seafront, as Hythe Haven silted up centuries ago. Picturesque alleys rise steeply to St Leonard's Church, perched halfway up the hill. Above the townscape, there are fine views of the English Channel and Romney Marsh coastline, curving round to the faraway Dungeness headland.
