Dymchurch is a small village located on the south east coast of Kent at the
very edge of the Romney Marshes. Dymchurch has a blue flag awarded sandy beach
and is surrounded by mile after mile of flat countryside that is well suited
to those who seek to walk or cycle, the village provides an ideal base for
visitors to the area.
Dymchurch village itself has an assortment of accommodation types ranging
from Hotel to "rooms at the inn", Bed and Breakfast to Caravans and also
a large holiday park. In the centre of the village is an Amusement Park
with the usual offering of Ghost Train, Dodgems, Log Flume and other rides
which will keep the whole family entertained. The Romney, Hythe & Dymchurch
Railway also has a station in the village providing a unique way of travelling
west as far as Dungeness and east as far as the Cinque Port town of Hythe.
The sandy beach is the jewel in the Dymchurch crown. Stretching for miles
toward Dungeness to the west and Folkestone to the east it is washed completely
by the tide twice daily to leave a magnificent gently sloping strip of sand
almost a 1/4 mile wide at low tide. This expanse of sand is home to Donkey
Rides, Kite Surfers, Sandcastle Builders and those who like to relax.
The home of the fictional character created by Russell Thorndike, Doctor
Syn, Dymchurch holds it's Days of Syn pageant bi-annually during the August
Bank holiday weekend.
