The Romney Marsh is a remote and mysterious place - a landscape of wide horizons dotted with small villages and ancient churches beneath huge starry skies. Smuggling began on the Romney Marsh. And where there are smugglers there are ghost stories to explain those mysterious bumps i n the night and keep people indoors.
Enjoy an afternoon or evening coach tour full of ghosts, smugglers and the mysteries of the Marsh with visits to two ancient country pubs followed by fish & chips at the famous Pilot Inn at Dungeness. Meet the Guide on the edge of the Marsh at the time to suit you from midday to 6pm. The tour lasts four hours including two pub stops and fish & chips at The Pilot Inn.
Discover the swashbuckling Dr Syn - by day the local vicar, by night the smuggling Scarecrow and find out why you must always protect yourself from witches by smashing your egg shells. Marsh folk also smuggled wool to France hooting like owls in the night to signal to each other over the misty marsh. We’ll pick out some interesting pubs. Are they haunted? Of course they are – just don’t go the loo on your own.
The first Pilot Inn at Dungeness was built from the timbers of a Spanish ship wrecked for its cargo of brandy. This legendary pub serves the best fish & chips in Kent. The tour lasts four hours including two pub stops for drinks and the final stop at the Pilot for fish & chips.
So if you start at 3pm, you’ll eat at 6pm and be heading home at 7pm.
