Lovely for a walk/bike ride along the coast

There is a large car park (busy on a good Summer day), £1 for 24 hours! Reculver towers dominate the fairly flat landscape and make an impressive landmark. You can make your walk... read more

A beautiful walk along the cliff top towards Reculver towers, you can carry on walking or cycling to Minins Bay, at Reculver Towers stop off for a drink and a bite to eat at the King Eltherbert pub, inside on a rainy day, or outside when the sun is shining

I like reculver and walking on the beach looking for shark teeth. Nice place for bird watching too. Sadly, every time I visit the visitor centre is always shut, even when the times on the door say it should be open, like today. We did see someone lurking inside. Wouldn't harm to put a sign on door to say "gone... More

There is a large car park (busy on a good Summer day), £1 for 24 hours! Reculver towers dominate the fairly flat landscape and make an impressive landmark. You can make your walk or bike ride as short or long as you wish and as it`s a flat, even surface it`s suitable for all age groups and probably ok for... More

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
