This is an area of the UK which contains many walking and cycling routes as well as over 500 years of history.
The historical coastal town of Deal is close by. It is a very popular seaside town which had a thriving fishing industry. The town centre is a conservation area with pretty fisherman's cottages and cobbled streets.
Deal is steeped in history. Two castles built by Henry VIII (Deal and Walmer) perfectly preserved by English Heritage and close to Kingsdown park. Deal has a town motto of ‘Adjuvate Advenas’ , meaning “ Befriend a Stranger” – so expect a warm and friendly welcome!
Deal is mentioned in the Doomsday book, but its history goes back much further. Julius Caesar landed on the Deal- Walmer coast in 55 and 54 BC, but was knocked back by the unexpected high tides. Deal is one of the Cinque Ports and has been important in the defences of south east England throughout history. With a coastline that was permanently exposed to potential attack it was no wonder that Deal played such an important role.
There is something for everyone in Deal, fantastic independent shops, markets, delicatessens, pubs, restaurants and cafes. The town centre is pedestrianised which makes it an ideal place to wander and explore. Deal has a long Pier which was named Pier of the year in 2008, and the beach is perfect for strolling with an icecream. Deal is a Georgian town with winding streets and lovely promenade.
Other things to do in Deal include the paddling pool at Walmer - a favourite family hangout. The Time Ball Tower Museum, which was used to pass messages along the East Coast to warn of smugglers, is worth a visit. The Deal Maritime and Local History Museum is also very interesting as it tells the full historical story of this seaside town. The Deal Memorial Bandstand is a remembrance of the bombing of Deals Royal Marine School. The bandstand is still in use with free concerts from May to September on Sunday afternoons.
For sandy beaches Sandwich Bay and Broadstairs are a short drive away and are lovely to visit. Children will be keen to visit Port Lympne and Howletts Wild Animal Parks, again just a short journey away.
There are many golf courses, including Royal St Georges at Sandwich, Royal Cinque Ports at Deal, Hythe, Canterbury and North Foreland all within a short drive. Other sporting activities include water sports and fishing.
Day trips to France are easy, with the ferry from Dover or the Channel Tunnel at Folkestone close by.
Inland a short drive away is the historic City of Canterbury with its cobbled streets and magnificent Cathedral and fantastic shopping.
