    I've booked 2 nights camping in Dover over easter...... I want to go to Dover Castle and the Roman House, but not sure what to do with the other couple of days.

    Any suggestions?

    If you've got transport, Deal is nice.

    Deal is really nice well worth a trip and there is a very nice reasonably priced Italian restaurant called Dinos

    Deal, check out the castle and the beach.

    Also, the cliffs. Not as nice as the white cliffs in Dorset but you get to watch all the lorries and see France if you're lucky.
     
  5. When I was 14 I went to Dover with a couple of mates. The idea was to go to Boulogne and get beer, we did, cycled on to a ferry on our BMXs and cycled back with 3 crates each on the cross bars.

    Slept rough of the sea-front and mooched up to the castle, pissing about there we discovered the war-time tunnels. They are now an attraction, but back then they had just been locked up after the war and forgotten. We spent a decent afternoon having a nose around and getting pissed in there. Seemed like nothing had been touched since 1945 and we didn't trash the place, so maybe they're worth a look now?

    The castle is great, definitely worth a poke around. Have a daytrip to france - I'm in folkestone this week and were doing exactly that on Thursday - it's only 20 quid return.

    ViolentPanda Hardly getting over it.

    Dover museum, for the trench rifles and the neolithic boat.
     
  10. All of the above. Maybe go down to St marys bay, just round the corner- decent pub on the beach- be careful though, as as soon as you hit the beach, your phone switches to French netwoks for some odd reason

    Ok sound it sounds like Deal is a must then..... I'd like to walk over the top, but I guess that depends on the weather.

    Museums are a good one to know about for if it shits it down with rain.....

    I've got my camper van so can drive around anyway...

    Thanks for all the suggestions :)

    Sorry to her about the cat, all is ok. If you do get down there and head towards Deal, check out the South Foreland lighthouse on the way.
    In the other direction (not sure if this can be done on foot) it's worth checking out Samphire Hoe SAMPHIRE HOE

    Whatever abou a poke around the castle call up and see is Joss Stone at home. She's definitely worth a poke around.
