The flora and fauna that exists at Dungeness is unique, it has many plants and insects only surviving here on the shingle beach. It has the proctection of being an SSSI site and is under the control of English Nature in conjunction with the Romney Marsh Countryside project.
The shingle point is also used by birds in their migration routes and has famous R.S.P.B reserves in the area, with many rare species spotted either as visitors or as part of their transit through to other parts of the country. We are located between the two lighthouses, one of which, the old black one, can be visited, and the view from the top shows not only most of the Romney Marsh but on a clear day, the French Coast. The signs for the gallery can be seen as you drive past. Opposite is the Britannia Public House which is one of the best places to eat the fish 'n' chips which the area has become famous for.
Just over 300 yards away is the Dungeness light Railway Station Cafe, which is run by the Romney, Hythe and Dymchurch Railway company. They operate a light railway between here and Hythe approximately 18 miles away.
