Fancy a day out? A visit to this quaint little town that has something for everyone should be on the cards! A excellent beach, historical conservation area with lots of interesting architecture, cottages, and tiny streets interlinking to a fantastic high street with many unique shops and cafe's await you.
Visit the seafront and the many memorial benches and fishing vessels. There are two castles, built in Tudor times during the reign of Henry VIII. The Time Ball Tower linked by telegraph to Greenwich so the ships in The Downs could re set their chronometers when the time ball lowered every day in the 1800's. There is a lovely pier which you can stroll down. This was the last seaside pier to be built in England. There is great food to be had in the many wonderful cafe's and restaurants, ice cream parlours, pubs and wines bars with entertainment in the evenings. If you have children the open air paddling pool in the Summer or the indoor fun pool if the weather isn't so good will keep the children amused. Excellent selection of fish and chip shops offering locally caught fish. The high street has a friendly and welcoming atmosphere and buzzes with locals and visitors and lives up to the town motto "Befriend a Stranger" If you like walking you can go along the seafront to Walmer and on to the small village of Kingsdown. If you walk in a northerly direction you will find the ruined remains of Deal's third Tudor castle "Sandown Castle" which was reclaimed by the sea over 100 years ago. If you continue walking on from here along the coast line for several miles you will find yourself in the ancient port of Sandwich which has a myriad of medieval buildings believed to be the most surviving in any town. There are many useful links for visitors on the internet
