Covering about 100 square miles, Romney  Marsh is one of the three great coastal marshlands of southern England. The Marsh is a sparsely populated wetland area in the counties of Kent and East Sussex in the south-east of England.

Ringed to the north and west by the ancient sea-cliffs of the Romney shoreline, much of the Marsh is below sea level. Having been built up slowly from layers of silt it is a very gentle, even landscape. In the open countryside few features are over hedge height and there is a feeling of openness.

With excellent accommodation, outstanding attractions, fine food and drink, varied walking routes and many sandy beaches, Romney Marsh is an ideal place to visit, explore and enjoy

Romney Marsh is also known as The Fifth Continent. Thomas Ingoldsby, the pen name of 19th century author and cleric Richard Harris Barham (sometime Rector of St Dunstan, Snargate), wrote in his The Ingoldsby Legends:
The World, according to the best geographers, is divided into
Europe, Asia, Africa, America, and Romney Marsh.
