Royal Marines Heritage Trail

Celebrating the rich history of the Royal Marines and their unique relationship with Deal and Walmer, follow the self-guided heritage walking trail.

Despite not having a harbour, Deal was once a major port and has a long association with the Royal Marines who were stationed at barracks in Deal from 1869 to 1996.

Look out for the 23 embedded bronze markers as you follow the heritage trail around Deal and Walmer.
