"Sittin' on the dock of the bay"

Deal

Deal is a town in Kent, England which lies on the English Channel, eight miles north-east of Dover and eight miles south of Ramsgate. It is a former fishing, mining and garrison town. Close to Deal is Walmer, a possible location for Julius Caesar's first arrival in Britain.

Deal became a 'limb port' of the Cinque Ports in 1278 and grew into the busiest port in England; today it is a seaside resort, its quaint streets and houses the only reminder of its history. In 1968, Middle Street was the first Conservation Area in Kent.

The coast of France is approximately twenty-five miles from the town and is visible on clear days.

The Tudor Deal Castle, commissioned by King Henry VIII, has a rose floor plan.
