Hythe Town Information

Use the links on the left to find information and images for the towns and villages throughout Hampshire and New Forest...

Although this is a major centre for yachters and boating enthusiasts, Hythe is also notable for having the oldest continuously operating dedicated pier train in the world. This electric loco was built during the First World War and still plies a route along the town’s 2,100 feet pier. Both T.E. Lawrence - aka Lawrence of Arabia - and hovercraft inventor Sir Christopher Cockerell lived in Hythe. Lepe Country Park, Calshot Castle and Exbury Gardens are within easy reach.
