  • 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 »

  • We didnt spend long at what my children have aptly named "Windy Castle" but enjoyed a walk up the path to the towers and a quick look around. We were really in the area for the FABULOUS new play area and of course, the very necessary cafe for a cuppa while children are playing!! We used the little cafe which was over the road and this was great for a takeaway tea and ice-lolly for each of the children.
  • Very picturesque and great history. Friendly staff in all the shops and a good play park for the Children. Well worth the visit if you have a spare hour or so.
  • Lovely walk from Herne Bay. A very nice piece of history with beautiful views out to sea. There's a nice visitors centre and a park for children. There is a carpark also locates very close to the towers.
  • This was a random,"let's go down this road" moment only to come across this incredible old Roman site and church right on the coast. Well worth going to have a look at especially in summer. There a pub right next door and a big play area so if you have kids they won't moan too much...!
  • Ruins of a church and also the site of a Roman fort. Very picturesque, particularly when the Sun is setting. Good walks to both Herne Bay and Birchington. Walks are well signposted. Car park is Pay and Display.
