Astronomy

The Romney Marsh is one of the country's best areas for stargazing due to its wide horizons and lack of light pollution. Romney Marsh juts out into the English Channel and is often cloud free; you can often see clouds building up further inland whilst the sky here remains clear. Due to the low population density there is little light pollution from local sources. Inland and away from the coastal strip the sky at night can be really good for astronomy. The Milky Way can be seen easily along with distant objects such as galaxies and star clusters.

Beaches

The Marsh has four of the finest beaches in Kent, sandy beaches at Dymchurch, Greatstone and St Mary's Bay, and the shingle beach at Dungeness. Click on 'Website' for more information.

Birdwatching

Romney Marsh is an excellent place for seeing and watching birds. The Marshes large expanses of countryside criss crossed with dykes, farmland, lakes, coastline, sea and Dungeness Point, attract a large variety of birds. The coastline has formed over the past 5,000 years and continues to evolve. Wetlands extend across the area with shingle beaches, saltmarsh, saline lagoons, grazing marsh, gravel pits and intertidal mud and sand flats.

Churches

Romney Marsh is renown for its rural historic churches. There are fourteen scattered across the Marsh, with St Thomas à Becket at Fairfield the most iconic. Marooned amid the landscape without a graveyard or fence to keep the sheep from grazing up to its door, it is all that's left of a mediaeval village.

Cycling

The Romney Marsh is an excellent place to explore by bicycle, given it's flat and unique landscape, and there are plenty of places to cycle in the countryside and on the Romney Marsh coast.

Dungeness

The stark wild beauty and distinctive character of this shingle desert engenders feelings of awe, wonder and curiosity. Dungeness lies on a headland on the south Kent coast formed largely of a shingle beach in the form of a foreland, between New Romney, Lydd and Camber on Romney Marsh. It shelters a large area of the low-lying land Romney Marsh.
