Kingsdown is a village immediately to the south of Walmer, itself south of Deal, on the English Channel coast of Kent. There is a butcher’s shop, a hairdressers, a newsagents and a post office on the main Upper Street. The 18 hole, cliff top, Walmer & Kingsdown Golf Club is on The Leas. Kingsdown Woods is a small, once coppiced, wood maintained by the National Trust. Kingsdown is located at the northern end of the White cliffs of Dover. The village itself sits below the cliff, with a holiday camp on top, midway up. There are 3 pubs in Kingsdown, The Kings Head, The Rising Sun and The Zetland Arms on the shoreline. This is known as “White Cliffs Country” and cliff top walks from Dover up to Deal can be undertaken, with views across to France. There is also a 3 mile cycle track along the seashore. The resort towns of Deal and Walmer with their Tudor castles are 10 minutes away. Both Deal Castle and Walmer Castle are operated by English Heritage. Deal has many old buildings and a leisure pier, plus several museums relating to its maritime history, including the unusual building of The Timeball Tower Museum. Deal lies adjacent to the treacherous Goodwin Sands.
