- Castle is bigger than you think with three levels to explore. The phrase “doing the rounds” refers to patrolling around the round castle. You get to do the rounds around the lower level.Written November 15, 2022This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC.

- Deal is a lovely town. The Middle Street area is really interesting. Lots of smugglers cottages and narrow streets. The shops in the area are wonderful with a great Saturday market. Lots of great restaurants and coffee shops. Just a simply great spit.Written August 6, 2022This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC.

- As coastal piers go it's pretty basic, but any pier is begging you to walk the length of it and enjoy it for what it's worth.
It was a beautiful day, it's a slow stroll with the Mrs, watch some fish being caught and returned to satisfy another angler next week.
Thought it was an hour lazily spent and enjoyed......Written June 16, 2022This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC. Tripadvisor performs checks on reviews.
- Having done Deal and Walmer we thought we'd better come and see poor old Sandown. Pleasantly surprised by the varied thoughtful planting here. The plants all seem very happy and naturalised. Shame the council encased the rest of it in concrete but the sea would have had it otherwise. Quirky catering van nearby.Written May 11, 2022

- I often sit in this abandoned churchyard in Deal
Perhaps abandoned it the wrong word
As this tranquil area is deeply loved
The area has been cleared with the gravestones
Leaning against the original walls
They are decaying slowly with many of the characters lost to time
Although not numerous there are memorials set into the walls
One of these records the passing of Esther Ring who died in 1831 aged twenty-one
It is a sparse yet beautiful memorial which is fading slowly into its original state
My wife and I have adopted this memorial and will lay flowers once a year
On the anniversary of her passing and journey into eternity
I visited the churchyard yesterday and was soon joined by a young couple who sat nearby
They were discreetly listening to a radio which was playing songs by The Beatles
The final song was one of my favourites Eleanor Rigby
It was then that I wondered whether Eleanor and Esther had ever met in Heaven
I knew that there was no answer to my question so I closed my eyes and listened to the birdsWritten April 20, 2021
- My partner and I visited the Windmill on the last open day and it was a fantastic afternoon 😍 we was walked through and given so much information on the restoration of the Windmill, seeing all the old photos etc and how it all works inside was fascinating. Would highly recommendWritten July 17, 2022
- Sunday concerts through the summer are free of charge and a lovely community event. Lovely location right on the beach.Written August 28, 2022
- This church is set above Kingsdown Beach and over looks the English Chanel. It is well looked after, and has family history for me, my eldest daughter was married there and my late Wife's ashes are buried in the church grounds. It is a very nice little village church.Written July 2, 2019
- In January 1943 the American Liberty Ship SS James Harrod was transporting 9,200 tons of petrol (in 5 gallon cans) from Southampton to Antwerp. On 15 January 1943 she dropped anchor just off Deal but her anchor did not hold and, at about 01.30 on 16 January 1943, she drifted into another Ameriacn Liberty Ship, SS Raynond B Stevens, which was also anchored. The petrol cans on board SS James Harrod began exploding and three seamen and a gunner lost their lives. A single piece of wood with a plaque stands as a memorial to these men and it is worth stopping to have a look at if you are walking along Kingsdown Beach.Written September 26, 2022
