Having had an abortive attempt to get into the castle with our dog - shame on you EH - we went for a walk along the beach instead. What a treat; it was like going back in time. Charming.

This goes very nice with the castle and the gardens, i.e visit all in one go. Very clean, sandy and lovely view. Not ruined by young naughty couples, genuine people walking across, very polite and a enjoyable and pleasant experience.

Enjoy the walk along the beach from deal castle to Walmer castle, there is a path and cycling path. The beach is pebbly therefore you need pumps on to go in the water. There is no life guard so keep an eye on the kids...More

A slow but very pleasant walk along Walmer beach to Walmer castle. There is a smooth path before the shingle beach for those who cannot walk on the stones otherwise a very nice walk which, on the day I went, was almost empty of people.

Just a mile or so away from deal beach. Lots of pebbles, a little bit steep in areas but another fantastic British beach :)
