if you are looking for a day out to the sea side, but not the typical crowded english beaches, then a day to Dungeoness is a must. You can see the lovely Derek Jarman garden and his house, still maintained with the local flora that survives in this type of ground. The austere landscape with its pebbled beaches and wooden huts take you back, but a ride with the kids on the miniature steam train, really is nostalgic. You can have fish and chips at the Pilot Inn for lunch.
this weekend is 1940′s weekend, so if you swing by the kent and east sussex railway for its annual nostalgic weekend of air raid shelters and steam train rides, you can relive the costumes and lifestyle of the 1940′s.
