Enjoy a leisurely stroll around Hythe village with its many unique shops, café’s, pubs and restaurants, Hythe Marina with its distinctive fishing village style development, or along the raised boardwalk of the Promenade. There are plenty of waterfront places to sit and enjoy the comings and goings on Southampton Water. Hythe is also well known for its historic pier and boasts the world’s oldest pier train. If you don’t fancy the 700 yard (640m) walk down the pier, then the train regularly trundles up and down to catch the ferry sailing back and forth between Hythe and the city of Southampton, which in addition to a wealth of retail, entertainment and dining venues, has its own interesting maritime history and some of England’s best preserved Medieval Town Walls (guided walks are available), as well as a Titanic Memorial, Museums and some pleasant urban parks. Within a short distance of Hythe are the lovely villages of Dibden Purlieu, Blackfield, Fawley, Exbury and Beaulieu, all with their own unique vistas and characteristics. While the beaches at Lepe Country Park with its fascinating history of the D-Day Preparations and underground Cold War Monitoring Post, and Calshot with its historic Tudor Castle and Flying Boat Hangars situated on Calshot Spit are both well worth a visit and offer picturesque views of the Coastline, The Solent and the Isle of Wight.
