Walmer's shingle beach is 1 mile from the station. On a clear day France can be seen from the beach. From Walmer Castle it is a 1¼ mile walk north along the coast to Deal Castle.
Built by Henry VIII for coastal defence, centuries of domestic refinements have transformed Walmer Castle
from a fortress to an elegant stately home. It is the official residence of the Lord Warden of the Cinque Ports.
