Wow... what a time-travel experience. My kids were terrified but we loved the Gothic old style captured in this location.

When you gaze into the lifeless eyes of the skulls and the bones that lay before you, it gives you a very emotional experience, you wonder what their lives were like , what they had seen and what caused they demise. the words that come to mind are "what you see so ye shall be" its puts all daily problems...

Unlike most local attractions, it costs a minimal amount to enter and is far more interesting. The guide was also very knowledgeable and keen to explain everything. Don't overlook the church either, there are some very interesting things inside.

Just a pound to get in to see this very unususla set of bones and sculls beside the lovely church. Lovely informative man on the door. Pity we were rushing

We were staying in Hythe for a few days and decided to walk up to the church and take a look around the Crypt. We are glad we did. There was guide called " Mary " who was very friendly and very knowledgeable about the history and facts of the Crypt. Well worth a visit.

A great little place to visit if you're in Hythe. The people looking after the site are extremely knowledgeable and can tell you lots of facts about the place. It's only a small room so just a short visit to see all the skulls and bones but worth it all the same. And a great view from up the hill.

It is a bit of a walk up the hill but you get a great view of Hythe and out to sea. Especially lovely up through the little roads where colourful hollyhocks and foxgloves have self sown!1

We stumbled on the Ossuary in the crypt of St Leonard’s church during a visit to Hythe town whilst enjoying a weekend break to the Romney Marsh. The church is well signposted from various points in the town and we reached it from the High Street, though note there is a steep climb from here up to the church. On... More
