Local Information

Deal is steeped in history having not one but three castles built by Henry VIII, namely Deal, Walmer and Sandown. The first two are English Heritage sites and Sandown (only a few stones remain) is on the cycle path that follows the coast path. Deal has the town motto of 'Adjuvate Advenas' which for those not familiar with Latin is translated into " Befriend a Stranger" - perfect for those wanting to be made welcome on a self catering holiday to Deal or short break!

For the historians Deal is mentioned in the Doomsday book, but evidence suggests its history goes back much further. Julius Caesar is said to have landed upon the Deal & Walmer coast in 55 and 54 BC. Deal is one of the Cinque Ports and has been important in the defences of south east England throughout history. With a coastline that was permanently exposed to potential attack it was no wonder that Deal played such an important role.

There is something for everyone in Deal, fantastic and often quirky independent shops, markets, delicatessens, pubs, restaurants and cafes, together with a wonderful weekly bric-a-brac and food market. The actual town centre is pedestrianised which makes it an ideal place to wander and explore. Deal has a long Pier which was named Pier of the Year in 2008 and boasts an award-winning café and restaurant, whilst the beach is perfect for soaking up the coastal scenery. Deal is a true Georgian town with winding streets and lovely promenade.

Other things to do in Deal include the Time Ball Tower Museum, which is a Semaphore Tower and was used to pass messages along the East Coast to warn of smugglers. This museum contains many curious items and is well worth a visit. The Deal Maritime and Local History Museum is also very interesting as it tells the full historical story of this seaside town. The Deal Memorial Bandstand is a remembrance of the bombing of Deal's Royal Marines School of Music in 1989. The bandstand is in regular use and there are free concerts from May to September on Sunday afternoons.

Deal and Walmer have excellent bars, cafes and restaurants to choose from, including an award winning restaurant at the end of the pier. Within a 2 minute walk of the house is the best fish and chip shop in the country!

For golfers, try your skills on a links course and Deal has plenty to offer; Walmer and Kingsdown Golf Links, Royal St George's in Sandwich, and Royal Cinque Ports in Deal are all within an easy reach.

For sailing enthusiasts, the nearby Downs Sailing Club holds events suitable for novices and experienced sailors, throughout the season.

For swimmers who don't like the seawater, a visit with the family to Tides Leisure Centre, a minute's drive away, is a must, including numerous flumes, slides and Jacuzzi's.

Fishing need not just be nipping down to the beach front for the catch of the day off the local fisherman, why not bring your rod and bait and cast off from the pier or beach yourself?

Plus don't forget your passport! France can easily be seen on a clear day and via Dover, a day trip (21 miles) to our near neighbour is easily do-able!
