The countours of the Roman fortress are still visible. The original church has collapsed but the towers from the later monastery are still intact. The views are great. Standing on 2000 years of history, realising all cultures and the sea who have changed and eroded...More

Ancient historical site that is worth a visit. Information boards set the historical scene. Cliff top location too. Parking is available. Large play area for children, pub and cafe/shop there also.

Worth the short walk up the hill for the sea views. A brilliant play park for the kids too, and an ice cream seller in summer months.

It's a lovely view. Great to see the fort and a lovely place to start or end a long walk along the seaside. The path links up all the way to Birchington. So it's brilliant and both ends have a place to stop for tea/...More
