Description

Added by Lewis Hackett

Explore one of the largest expanses of shingled beach and most stunning lighthouses in Europe! 

Traverse the Dungeness Headland via Dungeness Rd for an easy loop around the Old Lighthouse. When exploring the headland you can expect to see various nautical artifacts scattered across the shoreline as well as abandoned boats and beautiful seaside cottages. Please note that the cottages are private residence so be considerate of property boundaries. One of the main attractions to this area is the Old Dungeness Lighthouse (c. 1904) which is open seasonally (see http://www.dungenesslighthouse.com for hours). Despite the lighthouses seasonal openings, the structure can be easily photographed all year round. This area is also protected through various conservation designations due to its plant-life, bird-life and invertebrate communities.
