There's a definite ‘end-of-the-world’ feel about Dungeness, a tiny fishing town at the southernmost point of Kent. It’s set in a wild landscape of stark, shingle desert headland, overlooked by the imposing Dungeness Nuclear Power Station. Now, day trips and overnight stays are allowed in the UK, we can finally go and visit. Dungeness might not tick the ‘Garden of England’ boxes the rest of the county is known for, but there is something uniquely beautiful about the place, with its lighthouses, abandoned fishing boats, wooden cabins and thriving wildlife.
Please note: Some of the facilities and businesses we mention will be closed at the moment. Government advice is to avoid public transport so don’t travel by train or bus. Please be mindful of the people who live locally. If you decide to travel, check whether car parks are open before you set off and adhere to social distancing guidelines on your walks.
