Local Information

The Beautiful town of Deal in Kent is believed to get its name from the Saxon “Dylle” meaning plain or level floor, because it lies almost level with the sea. It is a former fishing, mining and garrison town and was notorious for smuggling in the 17th and 18th century. Deal is now a beautiful quintessential English seaside town complete with pier and promenade offering a wealth of heritage, history, architecture and contemporary culture, mixed with vibrantly independent shopping, eating and drinking – it was awarded UK High Street of the Year in 2014. The town falls naturally into a number of unique areas, each full of its own character. Within each area there is a range of tempting shops, pubs, places to eat and visitor attractions.

Starting from the station this area includes all the popular High Street names located in a convenient pedestrianised area. You will also find many unique shops providing products and gifts that are just a little different. The High Street is lively in the evening too, with many pubs, bars and restaurants. Carry on north up the High Street for lots more independent shops in the conservation area.

Vintage, retro and antique thrill seekers will quickly lose themselves in the town’s array of welcoming independent outlets. For its size, Deal boasts an astonishing number of shops selling expertly-sourced vintage goods including furniture, clothes, vinyl records, collectables, books and object d’art! The Saturday market is located in a public car park opposite the end of Farrier Street and includes an ever-changing array of stalls selling yet more pre-owned delights and local produce.

Carry on further north along the High Street towards the Town Hall and you will find decadent delis and cheese shops; fabulous fish mongers (as well as regular catches from boats on the beach); independent butchers supplying Kentish meat and poultry; artisan bakeries offering sweet and savoury treats and green grocers stocked with locally-grown produce. During the week on Wednesdays & Fridays the local produce market can be found in the Town Hall undercroft.

Farrier Street is located in the heart of Deal’s Conservation Area that stretches from South Street to North Street taking in the Astor Theatre in Stanhope Road, the Maritime Museum, St. George’s Church, the many independently owned shops at the northern end of the High Street – and St. George’s Passage – plus the historic houses in Middle Street as far as Alfred Square.Not only one of the last piers to be built in England but a variety of pubs & restaurants and a seafood stall snuggle on the seafront. Just past the fishing boats pulled up onto the beach you will find Henry VIII’s powerful coastal fortress.
Stunning views to the Goodwin Sands, where countless ships have met their fate. Climb the Timeball Tower for spectacular views.
