Dymchurch

Coastal Team

Dymchurch is a traditional seaside village, with a population of about 3,000 that increases to 12,000 in the summer months.

Dymchurch offers:-

· fantastic sandy beaches, a family funfair, extensive holiday parks and the Romney, Hythe, & Dymchurch Railway

· heritage from the Roman period to World War Two, with three Napoleonic Martello Towers; a medieval church and courthouse, and a rich association with smuggling history

· culture through its links with Russell Thorndyke’s “Dr. Syn” novels; Rudyard Kipling’s “The Dymchurch Flit”; Edith Nesbitt’s “Railway Children”; and artists Paul Nash and John Piper

· a great base to explore the Romney Marsh, Kent and is readily accessible to European visitors.

Dymchurch remains popular and is highly seasonal. The Coastal Community Team, which includes the parish and district councils, traders and the local heritage group, recognises that efforts need to be made to maintain and improve the resort’s competitiveness, and extend its attractiveness throughout the year.

We are working hard to develop Dymchurch’s appeal, retain its traditional charm, and enhance green tourism, while meeting the expectations of 21st century visitors.
