NATIONAL MEADOWS OPEN DAY AT THE CAPTAIN’S GARDEN, DEAL CASTLE

July 4 @ 10:00 am - 3:00 pm

castle event

National Meadows open day of 2021 – its a great chance to see how the work of our volunteers in the community garden are progressing to bring this historic garden at Deal Castle back into use.

The 1.2 acre Captain’s Garden dates from 1733 and was the private walled garden of the Captain of Deal Castle, Admiral Norris. The garden developed more into a kitchen garden for the castle in 19thC and during WW2 was a Dig-for-Victory community allotment.

From about 1948 to 1979 is was a commercial market garden and then subsequently went into disuse for nearly 40yrs

In January 2018 volunteers from Deal With It (Deal’s local Community Green Group), the Deal Hop Farm (a DWI Community Hop growing project in the town) in partnership with English Heritage (the custodians of the site) started to bring the site back into use, with the aspiration to turn the space into a free-to access garden for the whole community in Deal and Walmer.

Those wishing to visit the garden must book a slot at:

Government Update


Dear Guest

As you may be aware the government has introduced new rules and regulations. This means we now require guests to wear a mask upon entering the building and to wear around the communal areas; if you have a seat at the bar you can at that point remove the mask until you leave the table. Please note the bar is strictly table service so please do not approach the bar to order drinks.

We have disposable face masks at reception should you need one, please just ask.

We will now be closing at 22:00 instead of 23:00 so we are in line with the new instructed close time.

This will all be effective as of the 23rd September (Thursday).

Kind regards, The Clarendon Hotel Management
Holler Box
