- Deal Castle is one of the earliest and most elaborate of a chain of Tudor artillery coastal forts, which also includes Calshot, Camber, Walmer and Pendennis Castles. The castle was built between 1539 and 1540, shaped like a Tudor rose, the rounded bastions were designed to deflect incoming cannon balls and acted as platforms from which to fire in all directions.
- Walmer lifeboat station was established by the RNLI in 1856 and operates two inshore boats. Walmer lifeboat was one of 19 lifeboats that took part in the evacuation of the British Expeditionary Force from Dunkirk. Station open at the weekends and shop open wed-fri and weekends Easter to Christmas.
- Walmer Castle was originally built during the reign of Henry VIII as part of a chain of coastal artillery defences. Walmer Castle became the official residence of the Lord Warden of the Cinque Ports in 1708, of which holders of the post have included William Pitt the Younger, WH Smith, Winston Churchill, the Queen Mother, and The Duke of Wellington held the post for 23 years. The museum depicts Wellington’s career, the story of his life and death and you can see the original Wellington Boots. Outside you have great sea views and eight acres of gardens, including herbaceous borders, kitchen gardens and woodland.
- Kingsdown Beach is part of a large stretch of shingle beach that at the southern end sits under large white chalk cliffs and towards the north is backed by grass areas. As the tide goes out you get areas of compact sand below the shingle bank and a chalk shelf. The beach is also known as Oldstairs Bay and located at the northern end of the White Cliffs of Dover, part of the Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI) that stretches to Folkestone, with the beach and nearby downs being home for migrating birds and rare plants.
