Deal is a popular seaside town which lies eight miles north-east of Dover and eight miles south of Ramsgate. It is a former fishing, mining and garrison town. Close to Deal is Walmer, steeped in history, and a possible location for Julius Caesar's first arrival in Britain.
Deal became a 'limb port' of the Cinque Ports in 1278, and grew into the busiest port in England; today it is a seaside resort and its quaint streets and houses are a reminder of its history along with many ancient buildings and monuments. In 1968, Middle Street was the first Conservation Area in Kent. The coast of France is approximately twenty five miles from the town and is visible on clear days. The impressive Tudor castle was commissioned by King Henry VIII and has an unusual rose shaped floor plan.
There is also a non-League football club, Deal Town FC, which plays at The Charles Sports Ground and a rugby club, Deal & Betteshanger Lions, who play at the old RM Drill Field off Canada Road.
There is a farmer's market on Wednesdays, which sells local produce, as well as a well-established market on Saturdays. The town has a strong independent retail sector along with a number of more widely known shops in the town centre. The popular Astor Theatre in Deal offers musical performances, live theatre, exhibitions, movies, classes and clubs.
