it's not the post-apocalytic landscape you'd expect though
definitely take things to do or a massive picnic, there's only one scary pub there
i went when it was raining heavily and you could only walk so far and it was a bit lame
i think there's a similar place on the essex coast?
Sizewell is in Suffolk.
I'll admit defeat.
but by the time it had posted, thewarn's answer had appeared.
It is ok; I am not going to mire the Has Anyone Been To Dungeness thread in recriminations
just checkin' like
The nuclear power station there ceased operation in 2002 apparently. I didn't know this.
As for lovely, remote parts of Essex, the northern inland countryside is AMAZING. Constable country, they say. Visit a Saffron Walden B&B and just walk around the land there. I plan to do that for my next holiday (whenever that is).
Good day out I'd say.
This is Royter Hatfood isn't it?
to interview the dude who runs the Bird Observatory, and to wander round the reserve

it's a lovely, lovely, lovely part of the world and the power-station only adds to this. chuck in the narrow-gauge railway, the lighthouses and the unrelenting oddness of the whole area and it becomes a feverishly psychedelic place to be - you're alone with your thoughts but WHAT THOUGHTS THEY ARE
Or is it deffo a drive?
It's one of the more inaccessible places in Southern England. Go to Rye and get not one but TWO buses, apparently, or somehow get to Hythe (which doesn't have a 'proper' rail station) and take the mini-train.
I'm hitching a lift to go, myself. There's too many variables in trying to get there by public transport.
"Cheer up - You're a fucking footballer"
life must have been a bit of headfuck
Best visited on the Romney Hythe & Dymnchurch Railway.
The pub's not that scary, and it sells Oranjeboom.
There's also a really well regarded seafood restaurant, and (obviously) Prospect Cottage
Sadly you can't visit the nearby sound mirrors unless you break in
