A Dally In Deal

My final Kent pier after visiting Gravesend Town and Herne Bay, was Deal, half way down the eastern coast. The current concrete pier was opened in 1957 by the Duke of Edinburgh and is rather Brutalist in design. But it is well used by holiday makers visiting the pierhead café and folks fishing from the lower decks.

The café is a large building with light and airy interior thanks to the all-round windows looking out onto the English Channel. The cheesecake was delicious.
