From the sand dunes of Camber to the white cliffs of Ramsgate, the England Coast Path is a delight to walk, whether it’s the full length or a smaller section of it.

Setting out from the wonderful East Sussex coastline you will see coastal delights, sea life, bird life and plant life, as you make your way over the cliff tops with wonderful sea views.  Heading into Kent you’ll see the unusual shingle landscape of Dungeness, which is home to some of the rarest birds and wildlife.  Visit one of the three lighthouses in Dungeness and take a ride along the Romney, Hythe and Dymchurch railway.

Making your way further along the coast, discover the Martello towers of Dymchurch and the pretty market town of Hythe packed full of independent boutiques, tea rooms and hidden cobbled walkways.

Walk along vast sandy beaches with blue seas, stop for a picnic, a paddle and some amazing photography whilst you’re there.

Discover wartime heritage as you head towards Dover with the stunning white cliffs of Dover, cliff top walks and the South Foreland lighthouse – discover wonderful places to stay and eat on Dover’s seafront.  Continue your journey to St Margaret’s at Cliffe with it’s Pine Calyx and beautiful bay.
