GHOSTS OF THE ROMNEY MARSH
The Romney Marsh is a remote and mysterious landscape of wide horizons dotted with small villages and ancient churches and pubs beneath huge starry skies. This was a big smuggling area where ghost stories were told to explain those mysterious bumps in the night.
Enjoy an afternoon or evening coach tour full of Marsh mysteries with visits to two country pubs followed by fish & chips at the famous Pilot Inn at Dungeness.
Start points and timings vary to suit you. Come from Kent and we can meet in Dymchurch. From Surrey starting in Appledore works well. The tour including pub stops and supper lasts four hours. So you could meet the Blue Badge Guide for a drink at the first pub at 3.00pm, stop midway at another old pub and finish up with fish & chips at the famous Pilot Inn at 6.00pm ready to go home an hour later.
Wherever possible we'll take you to one of the most unspoilt pubs in the UK. When Londoner Doris Jemison was sent to the Romney Marsh as a Land Army girl she soon fell in love with the publican's son. After the war Doris took on a pub unchanged since the First World War and it's hardly changed since. They don't sell lager, real ales are poured straight from the cask and there are no fruit machines.
We've been taking groups to The Pilot Inn at Dungeness for over twenty years and the fish & chips with freshly caught fish from the South Coast fishing fleets has always been tip top. The first Pilot pub was built from the timbers of a Spanish ship deliberately wrecked and looted for its cargo of brandy.
And is it haunted? Of course it is! Just don't go to the loo on your own!
