Buses and taxis for exploring the New Romney area without driving or cycling!
If you feel like a visit to a pub, or just don't want to worry about driving or cycling, there are bus and taxi services around the area directly accessible from Romney Meadows Caravan Park. We are proud winners of the Tripadvisor Traveller's Choice Best Of The Best Award 2022.
Although the Kent countrywide doesn't have the transport services of a city, there are still plenty of convenient ways to get around and explore the area without a car or bike. We do recommend planning in advance if you plan to be out later in the evening as bus services mostly run during the day, and sometimes taxis can all be booked out. You can find some bus timetables and route maps in our gallery
New Romney Bus Services
Our local bus service is run by Stagecoach Buses who's route 11 service runs directly outside the campsite; it's a hail and ride service so you don't need a bus stop, just wave it down as it passes by!
Route 11 ends at Lydd Army Camp, but the bus continues onto the next route, taking it in a loop along the coast to Dungeness, Greatstone, Littlestone, and New Romney, before heading to Ashford; if you get off at Hammond's Corner just outside New Romney, it's just a five minute walk back to the campsite.
You also have the option in Lydd to change to the 102 coastal bus which runs to Camber and Rye in one direction, and Dymchurch, Hythe, and Folkestone in the other. You can also catch this bus route in New Romney which is a 15 minute walk from the caravan park.

New Romney Taxi Services
For a more direct service which runs much later than the buses, we have a number of taxi companies in the area which can pick you up and drop you off directly at the caravan park. We strongly recommend booking taxis in advance for both directions of your journey; there are far fewer taxis available in rural areas so it's best to book in advance and avoid a long wait, or not being able to get one!
These are a few of the popular destinations nearby to pick up supplies or a nice meal, and approximate taxi fares. (in summer 2022)
New Romney village is a 15-20 minute walk but just a few minutes by taxi, costing around £6-7. The village has a small supermarket as well as some great pubs and places to eat, with some of the most recommended places being Diamond Turkish BBQ, Cinq Port Arms and the Ship Inn Hotel.
There's another excellent pub and restaurant called The Ship in Dymchurch which is around £13 to get to by taxi. The Woolpack Inn near Brookland costs about £17 to reach by taxi. And Rye, which has several pubs, restaurants, and shops is around £25-30 by taxi.
