Deal is a coastal town about 20 minutes’ drive north of Dover. On clear days, you can look across the English Channel and see the coast of France. It is home to Deal Castle, built in 1540 by King Henry VIII. There is a popular cycle route along the coast, which takes you to the town’s second castle; Walmer Castle. Walmer Castle also has about 32 acres of beautiful gardens and parkland.
Deal’s pier is located right in the heart of the town, and offers a glass-walled café with fantastic views of the channel. You can also rent fishing rods to fish off the pier for a small fee. There is a fishing competition every month, as well as midnight fishing every Saturday until 8am. Deal Braderie is the annual street market, and it stretches from Deal High Street, selling clothing, jewellery, crafts, antiques, plants, books, and more.
