Paul Holt, Samphire Hoe
Discover what it means to be a ranger at Samphire Hoe — the spectacular nature reserve at the foot of the iconic White Cliffs of Dover. Starting your day with tea and biscuits in the cosy, fire-heated shelter, you’ll meet our very own rangers, who will talk you through a day in their life and tell you what to look out for during the Experience.
We’ll then take you on an exploration of Samphire Hoe, revealing the reserve’s hidden gems and telling you about the area’s fascinating history. You’ll get to check livestock, help monitor the local wildlife and even discover the wildlife of the strandline as you take part in beach conservation. After an insightful morning of being a ranger, we’ll take you back to the shelter where you can tuck into some local homemade soup and chat with our ranger about the morning’s events — but be sure to take advantage of their local expertise so you can go on to uncover even more of what Kent has to offer.
We’ll leave you with a signed copy of ‘Shakespeare Cliff: A People’s History’ — so you can discover even more stories from the people who made Kent their home.
