Couple walking at Samphire Hoe

Samphire Hoe Country Park is a beautiful strip of parkland and wildflower meadow – a nature reserve between towering cliffs and the English channel. The walk has two distinct one-mile (1.6km) sections. One follows the sea wall along smooth concrete, while the other passes through the middle of the Hoe with good paths and some steep gradients. There are a number of resting points along this section.

When the sea is rough, waves can come curling over the sea wall. When it is too stormy, the sea wall may be closed to the public temporarily.

This walk is one of Explore Kent’s stile free routes.

Stile free routes are suitable for a wide range of users including those in mobility scooters and families with younger children. Please be mindful that these stile free routes are located in the countryside and the path surfaces can be adversely affected by poor weather conditions. Certain routes may be better suited for wheelchairs with wider wheels, as they can handle the terrain more easily compared to other wheelchairs. We encourage you to read about the trails, and to assess them if you feel confident in completing them yourself.
