Deal Number 1. location choice for Film and TV production.

With a preserved historical conservation area retaining a two story high skyline along the seafront, Deal has become the number 1. location choice for both Film and Television production. Sky Arts recently filmed their drama The Tunnel in Deal, and ITV’s Vanity Fair found the conservation area and seafront complemented their Napoleonic theme. Currently aired on ITV is Liar, a TV drama frequently uses Deal’s glorious Pier and fishing boats as backdrop for most of the scenes. You don’t have to have an eye for what looks good on camera to realise Deal truly is a hidden gem on the Kent Coast. Dover & District Council have done a great job of preserving Deal’s charm by declining numerous attempts for property development on the Seafront. Like it or not the secret is out, with more Londoners realising just how close this picturesque town is to the capital. The Streets are heaving at weekends with Down From Londoners (DFLs) escaping into the small alleyways and Dickensian Streets, making them feel they have escaped to a bygone era. At the Little Deal Cottage we have seen the rise in Londoners staying at our Holiday Let and provided numerous artist with accommodation for them to complete projects in Deal. With the Cottage being situated within the conservation area and 100m from the seafront TV producers often snap-up the cottage before the actors have a chance to book. We are often given the feedback in our Guest Book that the draw is Deal itself, and being central to the heart of the Town is what makes our guests return time after time.
