We love to go to the Band concerts at Deal. Yesterday the 10th July was very special to rededecate the bandstand in memory of the 11 musicians who were killed on September 22nd 1989. The Royal Marines Band were superb There were thousands attending. It was a great day and so very moving and to see and hear from many Deal people how dedicated they all are and supportive of those families and the wounded who also came. An event like this makes me proud to be English. Thank you Deal.

Marlene B said
A visit to the timeball tower on Deal seafront is an experience within a unique building. Deal's timeball is one of only four operational in the world. It's an iconic landmark seen from the sea and land and from the air. The mechanism is now automated with the ball dropping between 9am and 5pm when the tower is open for visitors from Easter until September. The museum houses many different types of clocks and time keeping instruments. This building represents a bygone era and is well worth a visit for all ages.

Richard A said
The Roman House at Dover had proved itself a site of international interest, both for tourists and for all students studying the Roman World. So far more than 600,000 visitors have been welcomed, including numerous foreign groups and school parties. In 1986 the Queen Mother spent a whole afternoon in the Painted House. The modest admission charges prove very good value for money and some of those who discovered the site are still working there and sometimes give lectures.

We found this great looking place that serves fantastic tasting and interesting cuisine by chance. My photographers brother in law wanted to take a picture of the sun setting over Deal in the Autumn - so down to the end of the pier and there was this exciting looking building. Took the pix and then got stuck into the menu - and with excellent and cheery service we had a meal to remember while watching the spectacular sunset. Now we have to go back and try the famous breakfast with the rising sun ..... after all the Independent rated the location and food as one of the best 50 in UK. And they are not wrong.
