Having lived in Kent for at least 18 years I honestly have never been to Hythe but must visit again. We first visited this ancient Church with an enormous tall Church Organ and then moved to the Crypt (donation £2) to see the ossuary which...More

Really worth a visit if you're interested in churches. This one is in complete contrast to the simplicity of the Romney Marsh churches, but great architecture and a very friendly vicar.

Very pleasant stroll around the graveyard and church. I also visited the Ossuary which is very interesting.

A well maintained Norman Church that is easy to access from Hythe centre (limited parking at the church) There is a display of skulls in the ossary/crypt but this is, unfortunately, closed November to March. Useful information leaflets available inside. well worth a visit.

My Son got married in this beautiful church 15 years ago. So I decided to walk up the hill & have another look. It’s in a beautiful spot perched on the top of the hill. Very interesting. Lovely place. Certainly worth looking round.

A peaceful location up at the back of Hythe with a small car park next to it. Our visit was mainly to do with the famous crypt but the church is very pretty too.
