Trains to Deal traverse the Kent coastline, with views of the Strait of Dover and, on clear days, Calais in France. The station dates back to 1847 and formed part of the South Eastern Railway branch, whose opening was attended by the great novelist Charles Dickens. Throughout the 19th and early 20th centuries the station served the town's burgeoning tourist industry as well as the nearby Royal Marine barracks.

Today, Deal boasts an award-winning high street, which along with the labyrinthine lanes leading off it, brims with independent shops, boutiques and cafes. The high street weaves down to an attractive seafront with a charming pier (Deal Pier) and the Timeball Tower, an Victorian maritime time signal. The town is also home two historic buildings: Deal Castle, an impressive 16th century fort overlooking the sea, and the Royal Hotel, an elegant Georgian guest house whose former guests include Lord Nelson and Lady Hamilton.
