It's worth finding your way to the old Roman site at Reculver (between Herne Bay and Margate). There you will find an inexpensive car park, the remains of Roman and Saxon occupation, and the Reculver Country Park run by Kent Wildlife Trust. There is a small but interesting visitor centre which serves tea and coffee and has toilets. Once you've... More

There is limited car parking on hot days, but if you can get a space the park is a pleasure to roam. Imagine a links golf course without flags or gorse, and you have an idea of the park. Short stubby grass, sea views and cloud scapes, bird life and passing yachts - it's been the same for hundreds of... More

The information centre had a display of wild life that could be spotted. Details of the changing coast line over the thousands of years and the story of the bouncing bomb. There also were work /study facilities

I think some reviewers are confusing this withe the holiday park. Since the new park has been installed I have to give it 5 stars. The only drawback is the parking, but due to the location it's tricky to see how this could be improved on.

Arrived at Reculver with our medium sized campervan, height 8ft, as part of a tour Kent holiday. The car park has a height restriction barrier so I thought we could Park in the Coach Park that is signed. The gate to the Coach Park was padlocked so we rang asking if they could open it to allow us to park.... More

Spent a few hours here and absolutely loved it. The views are stunning - a brilliant place to sit in the sun, stare into nowhere and think about life 😄 The visitors centre is brilliant for children with displays and an area for the children to draw and chat. This is a welcome relief if the weather turns or if... More

We visited while on a trip out around the North Kent Coast, and what a lovely find. The ruins of the church are very interesting to see, and the towers have been very well preserved. Great for pictures! The rest of the park offers nice long walks across the Wantsum plains, with a good chance of seeing Marsh Harriers among... More

There's lots of history and geology to see here, and walks to do, and birds to hear. The car park, toilets and visitor centre are conveniently placed. There is a tourist park close to the cliffs and tower, but it is not intrusive and you can take a walk well away from it.

We visited the new play area today and my son loved it. Unfortunately, it rained and he screamed his head off. Being two is hard and he's not so great at understanding about the weather, he was enjoying himself! There are swings, disabled swings, slides, monkey bars and all sorts! Nice little picnic benches too. You can also have a... 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
