This is a great site whatever time you visit whether it be Summer Warblers, Spring Passage, Winter Buntings or Autumn Seawatches. Most winters a walk along the sea wall will turn up Black Redstart, Snow Bunting and Shorelark. Reculver Towers is a popular place to shelter to watch the sea in November storms for all the skuas, a number of... More

And particularly so when the wind is blowing straight off the sea over the cliffs. Unfortunately, the visitor centre is closed during week days in Winter so most of the visitors to the area are actually going for a stroll along the cliffs or onto the beach with (or without) dogs. The area boasts a demolished church that had been... More

We spent a couple of hours just walking along the path towards Herne Bay, it was a lovely day and very pleasant. Next time we will definitely brink our push bikes as the path goes all the way to Herne Bay or to Minnis Bay.

This country park extends west towards Herne Bay from Reculver Towers, and probably equates to about 2 miles (if that) in length, and a hundred yards or so in depth from the coast along it's length. East from the Towers you can walk (or cycle)along the promenade to Birchington. The park is pleasant, with good views across the sea to... More

It's difficult to rate Reculver Country Park in terms of being an attraction that said the area is worth a visit for the stunning views & information about the roman history of the area & links with testing the bouncing bomb in WW2. The twin towers are a haunting memory of times gone by. The facilities in the area are... More

If you need a walk to clear the cobwebs then you can do worse than start at the reculver towers and head off along the sea defenses . You probably see more breeds of dogs than birds but its still a decent place for wildlife near the oyster farm

Absolutely nothing to see. The views are not as spectacular as made out. The staff at the visitor centre were quite rude. The area around the visitor is ugly with bland sea defences. Part of the caravan park is run down and not used. Would not return.

We walked from Herne Bay to Reculver and the views are breathtaking. Long walk but well worth it to see the ruin and admire the surrounding area and views across the sea.

For many years we have driven along the Thanet Way and seen the mysterious Towers of Reculver in distant isolation. Next time we made up our minds to visit the site, however on arrival at the site it was not as isolated as it seemed in the distance. We were confronted with an unattractive car park that for us somewhat... More

Nice park - open and along sea front - good surface underfoot. Reculver in the distance - even in winter it was a landmark always in sight.
