About the location
Dover 8.5 miles; Canterbury 24 miles.
Deal is an historic Georgian coastal town boasting two castles, both open to the public, two small museums and two markets, held weekly. Deal offers restaurants with cuisine ranging from the traditional to exotic delicacies from the Orient, but, if fish is your desire then why not catch your own by enjoying a spot of fishing from the beach or pier? Deal Castle is an ideal place for children to explore, rugged and exciting with audio guides to help you get the best information whilst taking in this impressive castle built in the time of Henry VIII. Walmer Castle, which became the home of The Duke of Wellington and was the late Queen Mother's favourite, is just along the coast with gardens and tea rooms open from April until October, and their scones are highly recommended! Deal was the most important Naval base in Britain during the Age of Sail and although long gone, its maritime heritage is still inherent in its Conversation Area architecture and house names. Deal became a smuggler's paradise during the 1700s. Heritage street maps show where rum and brandy were rolled by casket avoiding the Excise men. Why not take the cycle path from Deal to Kingsdown, a pretty Kent village with views across to France? Here you can rest and recuperate in one of the three pubs all serving excellent food. If golf is your game then there are 12 courses within a 30 minute journey, but Royal Cinque Ports, Royal St. Georges and Kingsdown are within an easy distance. For sheer imposing magnificence nearby Dover Castle is an absolute must visit on any visitor's list. Spectacularly situated above the White Cliffs of Dover, this magnificent castle has guarded our shores from invasion for 20 centuries. Deal is the perfect location for families and friends looking to pursue outdoor activities or laze on the beach enjoying the sea air, stroll along the cobbled streets, sit and relax outside a bistro or tea room with a coffee or just gaze out to sea; Deal has something for everyone!
