  • Amazing place to bike around. The kiosk food nice ice creams too
  • Had heard good reviews but upon visiting myself, I found it quite disappointing. Won't be returning, there are much nicer places to walk with beautiful scenery nearby.
  • Went there on a stormy day. Waves crashing onto the walkway. Exhilarating.
  • A hidden gem in Dover Kent !
  • A gem of a find on the road out of Dover. Access is via a tunnel cut through the chalk cliffs which leads to a natural looking but landscape country park built upon half of the rock left from the channel tunnel building process. Various walks are available which give an opportunity to see the established flora and fauna. Dogs must be kept on a lead and there is a small charge for parking.
