Things To Do .. Fishing

Local Sea Fishing – Dover

Dover is one of the foremost venues on the south coast of Britain for Angling, with a wide variety of fish being landed such as Cod, Plaice, Huss (dog-fish), Pouting, Mackerel and Bass to name a few! Angling venues cover the Prince of Wales Pier, the Admiralty Pier, and the Southern Breakwater, which is only accessed by boat.

Dover Sea Angling Association hosts many Fixtures and Events, such as the popular 3-day Pier Festival, with occasional free entertainment at the DSAA Clubhouse.


Varne Boat & Social Club

The Varne Boat & Social Club has been in existence since 1966, the current clubhouse being built in 1975.  They stage international, national and local sporting competitions.

Beach Fishing at Dungeness

Dungeness is a few miles along the coast from Greatstone and New Romney Caravan Park is a great base for Sea Fishing at Dungeness or for any of the fantastic and accessible beaches nearby.

Summer days and evenings bring plentiful Mackerel ideal for the BBQ and Dover Sole and other flatfish are easily caught at low tide in calmer weather, and Bass are often caught nearer to the shoreline which is great for the younger angler!

Winter visits can bring Codling off Dungeness Point and plenty of Whiteing. Wrap up warm the weather can be sharp at this time of year.

Shirkoak Fisheries Carp and Course Fishing Woodchurch

If you fancy some serious course fishing, Shirkoak fisheries in Woodchurch is about a 25-30 minute drive from New Romney Caravan Park and is one of the top venues in Kent if not the south east, for readily caught specimens.

Shirkoak Fisheries is a 2.5 acre Carp and Course fishing lake excavated in 2003 by the former owners of the property in consultation with expert commercial fishery designers. It is located in a picturesque setting on Bethersden Road and is a tranquil place to spend the day passing your time.

The Royal Military Canal Appledore

A short drive from New Romney Caravan Park and Littlestone is the Royal Military Canal. The canal side path runs for 28 miles along the entire length of the Royal Military Canal from Seabrook, Kent to Cliff End in East Sussex. The route treads a path between the vast openness of the Romney Marsh and the old cliff line with its wooded hills and quiet villages. Walking along the quiet canal banks today it is easy to forget that this was once the scene of intense military activity. Now, much of the drama on the canal comes from the variety of wildlife that has made the canal its home.

Many public footpaths link to the Royal Military Canal Path, so it is easy to plan circular routes that take in sections of the canal. For those who prefer to stay close to the water, you can walk the length of the canal in stages.

More information on the walks along the canal and things do so along the way can be found on the royal military canal website here:
