Good Grassy area at the top for long walks with the Dog, Parking is easy. The Visitor centre is well worth a visit. after a long bracing walk the Ethelbert Arms (just opposite), provides liquid refreshments, as well as food.

A chance stop of Reculver to view the beach gave more than we planned for. Reculver Visitor Centre and Kent wildlife trust, situated set back from the car park. There are public toilets and a broad grassy area with picnic tables. The car park, a bargain 20p an hour, was large and close to the sea. The small but informative... More

The reference point for the experimental Dam-busters bouncing bomb. The car parking was cheap and all the facilities were present. The lane down to Reculver was very narrow but the trip was well worth it. Breathtaking views from the towers.

Wonderful places. Bargain parking. Could only b improved by a kids playground or play activities. Towers and ruins are breathtaking. Beach a little disappointing but is not meant to be for sunbathing. Perfect for photography.

The walks around here are amazing. Equally hire a bike at Minnis Bay and cycle it. I can't stand the cyclists when I am walking or the walkers when cycling. There are so many walks either through countryside or along the winding sea path. Be warned it can be a really easy walk and ride with the wind in your... More

Lovely in the sun, mind the children as there are some steep drops, on a warm summers day ,you could be stuck on the m25 , but why when this tranquil place is on your door step! Maybe a stop off place before all the rush and noise at Margate!

This area is so well looked after and has something for everyone. There are lovely walks, secluded beaches, bird watching, fishing and lots of space for families to run free, There is a lovely pub, a café, lovely clean toilets and the Wildlife Trust have a building full of interesting information about the area. It's well worth a visit.

Reculver Towers certainly look dramatic, set against the sea landscape BUT don't expect a country 'park'! This is an ancient monument along the coast offering a bracing sea walk in winter or a leisurely stroll in summer :-)
