Covering approximately 100 square miles from Rye to Hythe, the wetland area of Romney Marsh is flat and low-lying, with parts below sea level. Romney Marsh has been gradually built up over the centuries and is renowned for its natural beauty, diverse wildlife, rich history and extensive coastline.
From fine sandy beaches and medieval churches to nature and bird reserves and unspoilt countryside, Romney Marsh offers so much to see and do.
Attractions include the historic towns of New Romney and Lydd; the Romney, Hythe and Dymchurch Railway, a 15” gauge miniature railway that runs for 14 miles from Hythe to Dungeness; and the Royal Military Canal that stretches for 28 miles and hugs the old cliff line that borders the Romney Marsh from Hythe in the north to Rye in the south west.
