Situated eight miles north east of Dover, with a population approaching 30,000, Deal is a popular coastal resort. The sixteenth century castle stands at the townâ€™s southern end, built by Henry the Eighth as part of the coastal defences against the French. It is said that Julius Caesar landed here in 55 BC.
