The Timeball Tower Museum also explores and explains the nautical history of Deal. It is a great and good value activity. The Kent Museum of Moving Image is a not-for-profit museum that explores the deep history of the moving image from the days of candlelit magic lantern performances and hand-painted slides through to the modern cinema. It is wonderful and well worth a visit. Deal is very close to Walmer, a possible location for Julius Ceasar’s first arrival. You can explore more than eight acres of award-winning gardens in the grounds of the picturesque Walmer Castle. It was once a Tudor artillery fortress that became a stately home for the Lords Warden of the Cinque Ports, including the Iron Duke of Wellington. The formal and informal gardens are a delight with herbaceous borders, vivid colourful planting, an impressive cloud hedge, a kitchen garden, wild flower meadows, shaded woodland, a sunken glen and the glorious Queen Mother’s garden. Further away you can visit Ramsgate which has become very fashionable or the many glorious vineyards, orchards and gardens of the wonderful Kent countryside.
