Hythe (Derivation: OE landing place or harbour) is a seaside resort town on the Kent coast of England about 12km (8 miles) south-west of Folkstone. It was one of the original Cinque Ports with Dover, Hastings, Romney and Sandwich) although the now defunct port is separated from the town by the Royal Military Canal which was built as an anti-invasion measure against Napoleon.

Hythe is at one end of the Romney, Hythe and Dymchurch Railway, the smallest public railway in the world.
