It’s March and The Cliff Top Cafe is fully open. A great place to visit with friendly staff, good food and a fantastic view. Our weekend treat; and mid week if we can find the time 😁

Wow. What a view. Sit inside or out. Park nearby and walk. Amazing view of Channel, Folkestone and France on a clear day. Have an English mug of tea, a piece of cake and soak up the sights.
