Blue Plaques

Download a PDF of the Blue Plaque Trail LeafletThe Deal Society erects plaques to people who have had a significant impact on the town and, in many cases, nationally and internationally.

We have produced a leaflet describing a walk around Deal featuring plaques to many of the fascinating residents of the town, it is a 3¾ km (2¼ mile) walk around the streets of Deal, which should take you about an hour to complete. The leaflet is available from the Deal tourist information office or can be downloaded by clicking the image to the right (PDF pdf 600 Kb).

If you want to discover plaques in your own order, find the plaques not included in the walk or read more about the people commemorated on the plaque you will find them all on this map.
