The newest part of Kent, made from 4.9 million cubic metres of chalk marl dug to create the Channel Tunnel. Samphire Hoe was opened to the public in 1997, it is owned by Eurotunnel and managed in partnership with the White Cliffs Countryside Project. A great place for walks and picnics, with stunning views of the coast and cliffs. Samphire Hoe was initially sewn with wildflower seeds and now attracts a multitude of wild animals, birds and insects.
