  • My wife and I visited reculver for the first time in 30 years and it is still a lovely . When we initially visited you could get into the tower and walk across the walkway into the other tower but the...  more »
  • It's a lovely view. Great to see the fort and a lovely place to start or end a long walk along the seaside. The path links up all the way to Birchington. So it's brilliant and both ends have a place t...  more »
  • This is a regular stop for me when I cycle from Herne Bay to West Bay in Thanet. Amazing to think this was a long way inland in Roman times. Such a sense of history here. The towers are something of a...  more »

  • Very interesting, a new cafe has just been developed on the site and the car park expanded. There are also other places to get refreshments nearby including a pub and shop on outskirts of caravan park. The playground was very well appointed and had obviously had money spent in it recently. It was also very interesting seeing the towers of the church and reading how they have been retained as an aide to navigation. The information on the Romania Villa was also clear and very interesting. I would definitely recommend a visit.
  • A great place to visit either for the historic ruins or as a starting point for exploring the coastal area on foot or bicycle. New parking is now available and charges for both car parks are 80p per hour. The Visitor Centre will soon have new owners to run the cafe. The King Ethelbert pub serves very good food and there is another cafe serving food and non alcoholic drinks. A favourite area to visit.
  • Nice afternoon spot for a nice day. Historic towers overlooking the sea. Information centre nearby. Brand new children's play area has been installed next to the car park. Take a picnic or if you are looking for table service, there's a nice pub next door too.
  • Hidden historic gem in small North Kent Coastal village - great on a sunny day. Coastal walk but have to walk back for Car! Limited weekday bus service....
  • Excellent modern childrens play area and also ideal for walking. Plenty of parking space. Cafe for getting food and drinks. Toilets and baby changing facilities available but very very dirty.
