“Stones come alive with an expert”
Reviewed October 8, 2013

We visited the Towers on a day when there was an expert giving a talk. He made what could look like a ruin like any other come alive with stories of the site and of excavations that had happened there. The interpretation boards give lots of information if there isn't a talk going on. Very windy up there. Dress appropriately!

“Herne Bay”
Reviewed October 8, 2013

I have a very dear Aunt living in Herne Bay and I try to visit as often as possible, which is not easy from South Africa! However, we thoroughly enjoyed our last visit there especially learning about the Reculver Towers and Roman Fort. British history is very interesting!

“Interesting if you're in the area”
Reviewed October 1, 2013

The towers are quite impressive as they seem to teeter on the edge of the cliff. There is some information on boards as you walk past, but the visitor centre was closed when we visited. There is a pub close by and a small shop, but we didn't go in either of those.
