I am a frequent visitor to Cliffe Pools and the North Kent Marshes and absolutely love the place. There is plentiful car parking and the site is really wheel chair friendly, with shallow gradients and well maintained pathways.
Thats always a wonderful combination, natures prettiest sounds together. A view over the river Thames on its flow in towards London, this is a lovely hour or more's walk. Oh, you definitely need a car to get here. Even then, one side of the Saxon shore way does currently have vehicle access with works going on so make sure you...
Lovely area, quite a few moorhens, coots and ducks. Will be lovely in summer. Nice cafe there with reasonable prices and with really friendly staff. Quite a few fishing in the lakes there although it was extremely cold!!!
I've been here several times as it is good for a nice stroll, there is plenty of wildlife around and that's not just the locals, you can walk up to the sea wall and watch the ships go by or just sit and watch the birds.
