Hythe is the favourite Kent town for many people. An historic Cinque Port and seaside reasort, great defensive interest and unusual charm add to its appeal as a quintessential small English town. Its Golden Age was from the 11th to the 14th centuries, when, along with the other Cinque Ports, it was responsible for the defense of this most vulnerable corner of England. The gradual silting of its harbor, coupled with serious fire and a bad bout of the Plague, led to its decline in status. But far from becoming a 'Port of Stranded Pride', Hythe was re-invented as a military town during the Napoleonic threat.
