  • In the shadow of the White Cliffs a new strip of land formed from the spoil from the Channel Tunnel. A new opportunity for wildlife which is flourishing. An education centre and café add to the site. Well worth a visit for a few minutes to gaze out over the English Channel or a longer stay to explore the wildlife.
  • Amazing. The whole place. To get here is interesting. To walk around. Stunning views. Nice cafe.
  • A really nice hidden gem that I only found out about when a friend mentioned it. The views here are really lovely. My friends and I enjoyed a nice panini each from the tea hut.
  • Just an all round fantastic place for the whole family 😊
  • Hidden gem so close to Dover! great trails and sea wall for walking along. Great fishing as well, but remember rotten bottoms if fishing on the bottom.
