A HISTORY

Hythe is a charming village blessed to have retained so many of its old picturesque buildings in its historic centre, nestling on the eastern edge of the New Forest fronting onto Southampton Water.Over the centuries much has changed, yet the links between the big city and the backwater village are still very much alive. Ferry passengers make the quarter of an hour crossing from Hythe’s Victorian pier stretching 2,100 feet from the shore. The pier is the seventh longest In Britain and is traversed either on foot or by a century old electric tramway, in the Guinness Book of Records as the world’s oldest workingpier railway. The story of the Hythe-Southampton ferry passage is a rich tapestry across the Southampton water.
