Visit Hythe 2018

S pend time browsing the pleasant range of interesting shops Hythe has to offer, take advantage of the wide choice of places to eat, drink or takeaway and enjoy the waterfront views from the Promenade, Prospect Place or the gardens behind The Grove in St John’s Street. Access for wheelchairs is good in most shops and there are plenty of places to sit when you want a break and open spaces to relax in. There is easy pedestrian access from all three main car parks, as well as some short-stay on- street parking. Hythe has great transport links throughout the summer with regular buses, the ferry, the New Forest Tour Bus stops in Hythe; giving access to The New Forest and beyond from 7th July to 9th September. Every Tuesday is market day in the village centre, with an array of stalls to cater for everyone. Hythe also welcomes two new markets for 2018; A Taste Of The South street market offering local produce and food to go on the first Saturday of the Month from June and the Hythe Village Bank Holiday Fayre; incorporating Artisan Foods, gifts, arts, design, antique and vintage stalls and are held every Bank Holiday Monday. The French Market will also return again on Saturday 16th June. The High Street, The Marsh and Pylewell Road and Precinct all offer a great selection of local shops and businesses and the Promenade, with its accessible boardwalks and seating areas, is an ideal spot to watch the maritime activity on Southampton Water. Another pedestrian- friendly area worth a visit is the Marina with a choice of places to eat while enjoying the views across Southampton Water. Hythe is still very much a village with a warm and family friendly atmosphere where the shops and businesses pride themselves on customer care and pay particular attention to making visitors feel welcome. Visitor information is available at the Pier entrance, The Herald Office on the corner of the High Street and Hythe & Dibden Parish Council offices in The Grove, St John’s Street.
