Deal, England


Deal: The beach and Seafront.

Deal is a small fishing town on the Kent coast.  Now a quiet seaside resort, it was once the busiest port in England.  In 1278 it was made one of the "limbs" of the Cinque Ports: five ports, two towns and seven "limbs" making up a confederation for the defence of the area.  Deal is approximatel 25 miles from the coast of France.  It is mentioned in Dickens' novel, Bleak House and Jane Austen's Persuasion.


  1. The small castle there is worth a visit if it is still open to the public. I saw it many years ago.

  2. Have a wonderful weekend Sheila.

  3. The beach and seafront view on the postcard's lovely.

  4. Wow, you've got a real nice postcard collection here. How I wish I can still actively swap cards. I've been lagging behind :(

  5. @jakill, the last time we were there, it looked very closed. I'm not convinced it is still open.
    @jodi, thanks, I did.
    @MBL, very typically English fishing village.
    @PinayPostcrosser, let me know if you want to swap. :) Sometimes it's hard to keep up with all these things.


Welcome to my postcard collection! I love hearing what you think of the cards - but spam WILL be deleted.
