About the neighbourhood
Deal is a unique place, where coast meets country, country meets the town and England meets the Continent. Whatever the time of year, it's a great spot to savour some quality time and glimpse life from a bygone era.

You'll find a wealth of independent, quirky shops open all year round, and every Saturday, in the centre of town, a lively market with stalls selling everything from antiques through to cheese and wine.
For generations, artists, designers, writers and musicians have been inspired by the beautiful coastline, chalk cliffs, stunning countryside, smugglers' alleyways, historical heritage and nautical charisma.
There's an energetic arts scene with a host of independent galleries, exhibitions and events, whatever the time of year.
