Old Lighthouse

The Old Lighthouse at Dungeness offers unique and perfect views over the 500 cuspate shingle ridges (created primarily by long shore drift) that have formed the foreland, one of the largest in the world and the greatest example in the UK.

Pilot Inn

The Pilot Inn is a family run pub and restaurant situated a stones throw (and there's a lot of them around) from the sea, in the heart of the breathtaking Dungeness National Nature Reserve.

The ship was used to build the original Pilot Inn and some of the original timbers remain in the bar today.
