Here’s our guide to Valentine’s Day in Deal however you’re spending it.


Our top Valentines activities


The end of the pier

Take a stroll to the end of the pier, and explore its lower deck. There’s not many people around at night and you’ll get an unbeatable view of Deal lit up. Worth bracing the winds for and a romantic way to round off the evening.


Cliff top walk

Park up at St Margarets or set off from Kingsdown. A walk along the famous White Cliffs is a great way to get away from it all. Stroll along one of the many public footpaths and take in the stunning views of the coastline and on a clear day look out to France.


The Arcade

Go old school with your date, bring along your pennies and take them to the arcade. The retro slot machines and games at Deal’s amusements are always great fun and would be the ideal way to break the ice before heading to a restaurant. If you’re feeling flashy you could even treat yourselves to some candy floss!


Walmer Castle and Gardens

Impress with a cultured and sophisticated trip to Walmer Castle. Spend the day exploring the history of one of Deal’s landmarks. With beautiful gardens to explore and elegant rooms to take in, you’ll sweep your date off their feet. Open from February 12th till 4pm
