The South East England region
Come and visit this lovely part of the ‘Garden of England’ and the pretty small towns along this part of the Kent coastline. This is an area steeped in history, with its three historic Cinque Port castles in Dover, Deal and Walmer, the awesome White Cliffs of Dover, the fascinating nearby medieval walled Cathedral City of Canterbury and the charming old ‘port’ and village of nearby Sandwich (once as important as London) with its narrow streets and pretty timbered buildings, which you can explore on foot, and where you can take a leisurely river cruise.
This is such an interesting area to visit, with its wealth of things to do and see to suit all the family. Less than a 2 hour's drive or train journey from London, Deal offers relaxation and fun. Enjoy some of Kent’s beautiful rolling countryside, its orchards and unique oast houses; or take a walk, drive or bike ride to discover its many characterful country pubs, restaurants and gardens.
There are also many varied activities available locally for everyone in the family to enjoy - such as walking, cycling, sea-fishing, first-class golf on Deal and Sandwich courses, as well as day trips by ferry or by Eurotunnel to France (just 40 mins through the tunnel away) to stock up on your wine!
Deal is an attractive small town, full of character and is an ideal choice for a relaxing and enjoyable holiday! Everything is within walking distance of our house.
For children, there is the pier and cafe, amusement arcades, ice-cream parlour, the beach and the sea, great, of course, for swimming and for picnics in the warmer weather, as well a kiddies paddling pool (summer only) a pitt and putt ground, Tides swimming pool with wave machines, a maritime museum and an impressive Time Ball museum. The Conservation area is virtually car free and the terrain is completely flat, which is ideal too for anyone with walking difficulties.
Deal is a lively, friendly and sociable place, most certainly due to the abundance of its interesting pubs and restaurants! It's a great place to come to spend time with friends, to enjoy good food and bracing walks in the fresh sea air. There is a good choice of restaurants and cafes, offering breakfast, brunch, lunch or dinner. some specialising in seafood, of course!
Deal also boast lots of individual food shops, including an excellent fishmonger, a well-stocked organic shop, a health food shop, an authentic Italian bread shop and cafe plus many colourful boutiques selling, clothes, accessories, bric a brac and antiques. There is even an M&S and Sainsburys for those who can't live without them! Deal also has a weekly Saturday market and a Farmer's Market on Wednesdays.
Deal also hosts an Annual Summer Festival and a Maritime Fair in the summer months and there are regular Sunday concerts at the bandstand on nearby Walmer seafront. The charming Astor Theatre re-opens in the Autumn, with varied theatrical and musical performances and there is usually live music in many of the local pubs throughout the year. Deal has it's own excellent links golf course and the nearby Championship Course at Sandwich will be home to the Open Tournament in 2011.
