Event Location - Samphire Hoe

Samphire Hoe Country Park was created at the foot of Shakespeare Cliff between Folkestone and Dover using chalk marl dug to create the Channel Tunnel. Opened in 1997 as a nature reserve and country park it is now a haven for wildlife and a centre for outdoor learning and events.

Habitats on site include chalk grassland, sea buckthorn scrub, ponds, rockpools and a pebble beach. Paths and a cycle route allow you to explore the site and a tea kiosk and indoor exhibition room with seating can be found near the car park.

The North Downs Way runs along the cliff top and links the site to Folkestone Warren Local Nature Reserve to the west.

We manage Samphire Hoe on behalf of Eurotunnel. For more information visit the Samphire Hoe website.
