Dungeness is the second largest shingle bank in the world. This nature reserved area is unique in England.  Spending a day-trip in the summer is a must. There are lots of fishermen cottages and just few minutes walk towards the beaches of which the English Channel is in front of you.

You can travel on the light railway to have one-hour scenery ride which you can get off any stop to walk around other  towns. Dungeness is the last stop. Once arrived, you can visit the Old Lighthouse, Derek Jarman's (the ex-film producer) house, visit the lifeboat station and walk down the big shingle area. The light railway will not operate during November & December but the schedule is quite frequent in other months especially in summer time.

 There are also a cafe near the railway station & a pub near the new light house  which serve good food & drinks.  If you have got more time, some people like to go fishing on the beach in the English Channel. There are also shops selling bait. Besides, you can walk around the area and enjoy such a breadthtaking scenary.  Among the cottages, you will find a few galleries or art shops selling their works.

 If you decide to drive, public car-parking spaces are available. It's such a nice experience for a day out in Dungeness. There's no wonder why this place attracts so many local & European tourists every summer.
