The Kingsdown to Walmer walk ambles along the England Coastal Path, leaving Deal behind. This walk creates a great afternoon out with pubs, tearooms and Walmer Castle to visit along the way.

Walmer is thought to be the site of Julius Caesar’s landing in Kent in 54 and 55 BC. Walmer Castle, built in the shape of the tudor rose by Henry VIII is now conserved by English Heritage. The official residence of the Lord Warden of the Cinque Ports in the 18th century, the Duke of Wellington resided here for 23 years, where he later died. You can see his original wellington boots if you decide to visit the castle.

The Kingsdown to Walmer walk leads you on a path heads up the slopes of the Downs to Hawkshill Freedown. This  public area of open grassland with outstanding views across the surrounding countryside and the English Channel. On a clear day, you can clearly see the French coast. Hawkshill was once a World War I aerodrome and there is a memorial to the brave pilots who flew from here and were killed fighting in the skies over France.
