A trip to Dungeness is worthwhile without the power station - it is a very bleak and unusual place (the only desert in the country). If you plan in advance you can also take a look around the power station (which is even more awe...More

It was a very interesting and informative tour, I learnt a great deal about nuclear power. The Guide was very well informed and able to answer all our questions. A great morning out and it's free.
