Welcome to Deal

Whether you’re exploring the coastline, seeing a show at the theatre or touring historic sites, there’s lots to see and do near to the coastal town of Deal. Located in Kent just a short drive from Dover and Ramsgate, a new home in Deal could be ideal if you’re looking to live in a seaside town with good transport links and lots of family attractions nearby.

A quick history

Deal was recorded as a village in the Domesday Book, and over the centuries the settlement became a significant port town, with castles built in the area for protection from attacks by foreign ships. Deal Castle was built by King Henry VIII, and has a floor plan in the shape of a rose.

Over the centuries Deal became one of the busiest ports in the country, and in the mid-1800s the Royal Marines established a depot in the town. Today Deal is mainly a seaside resort popular with holidaymakers and weekend breakers from London and beyond.

Located close to the port of Dover, Deal is within commuting distance of a number of major employers including P&O Ferries, Dover Harbour Board, DFDS Seaways and Burgess Marine. The region is also home to manufacturing firms Gatic, Multipanel UK and Megger, along with pharmaceutical company Pfizer and food manufacturers the Bakkavör Group.
