A little more about Kingsdown...

The village of Kingsdown lies within the Parish of Ringwould-with-Kingsdown, located at the northern end of the White Cliffs of Dover and south of Walmer and Deal on the English Channel. The village was a fishing village and sits below the cliffs.

The village has a couple of little shops on the main Upper Street which winds its way up the hill. There are three pubs: The Kings Head in Upper Street, The Rising Sun, and The Zetland Arms which is on the beach front. Kingsdown also has an 18 hole golf course on the cliff top.

Kingsdown is located on the South Foreland Heritage Coast and the countryside around the village within the Kent Downs Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB), a nationally important protected landscape. It is included in The Saxon Shore Way, Kent’s ancient coastline.
