  • Found this interesting spot on our travels.. Roman tower and fort now (via coastal erosion) on the coastline.. Our boy had a lot of fun playing me climbing on some of the lower stonework. Nearby (3 mi...  more »
  • This site contains two distinct relics. It is the site of a sizeable Roman fort - but there is nothing to see of that. There are also remains of an old church. The towers are a rebuild of the ancient ...  more »
  • There are two car parks which charge for you to park. Lovely children's play ground , also a cafe, plus a pub and a little place which sells ice cream. There is a public loo too. Nice walks by the sea...  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.
