The Wantsum Walk will enable you to explore and experience the variety of the North Kent coast and countryside between Herne Bay and Birchington. The area is of interest for its natural history, geological, archaeological, architectural and landscape features.

The walk will give you the opportunity of enjoying the seashore and coastal path, and an area of marsh and farmland now occupying the former sea channel which seperated the Isle of Thanet from the mainland. The route is waymarked, and is suitable for family groups as well as seasoned ramblers.
