Samphire Hoe

Samphire Hoe Education Shelter

Samphire Hoe is an amazing place made from the material dug to create the Channel Tunnel, with something for everybody - a stunning location, wild flowers, birds, sea angling, peace and quiet, painting or walks.

Refreshments are available on site.

The site is accessible for all people, providing gentle and interesting walks - the further you get from the car park the more wild the site becomes.

Guided walks and other activities are regularly organised. 

A new Education Shelter offers an exhibition space, classroom, store room and cloakroom. This is a great venue for activities and exhibitions. 

Take a look at our What's On listing to discover the events taking place here in the forthcoming months.
