Deal is a thriving and friendly town on the south eastern coast of England, only eight miles from the internationally famous port of Dover. The surrounding area boasts superb countryside for exploring walking routes, including the coastal path where you can walk from Deal to Dover and reach the spectacular White Cliffs which form part of the English coastline.
Deal Rail Station is served by the frequent "Javelin" high speed train, reaching London St. Pancras International in just 1hr 20mins.
Sporting needs are met with a modern leisure swimming pool, gym, Rugby and Football Clubs, plus two cricket clubs. Three internationally famous golf courses are close by too; Royal St George's, (where the Open was held in July 2011 and will again be held in 2020), the Royal Cinque Ports and Princes.
Deal has many excellent restaurants, seaside oyster bars with village pubs and stylish bistros. Culturally we have ’The Astor’ a thriving local theatre.
Uniquely, we have three castles in Deal, Walmer (the home of the Lord Warden of the Cinque Ports), Deal Castle (built in the shape of a Tudor Rose) and Sandown Castle, (although the latter was washed into the sea many years ago) all built by Henry VIII to defend the south east coast against the French invaders.
On the eastern side of Deal are picturesque local fishing boats, views of the Goodwin Sands and, on a clear day, the French coastline.
Southwards from the Pier, Walmer Lifeboat Station, the White Cliffs of Dover and the sight of ferries and the occasional cruise liner leaving and entering Dover Harbour.
