Tourism is fundamental to the workings of each member town and the Cinque Ports as a whole.

Every year whichever member town holds the Speakership has a ‘Speaker’s Day’ which involves dignitaries processing through the town usually with a military band. It is a joyous occasion when residents line the streets to see the procession bringing much needed footfall to the towns businesses.

The Cinque Ports are currently working on a combined marketing strategy and plan with an aim to increase tourist interest.
