Samphire Hoe

Samphire Hoe is the newest part of Kent, made from the spoil from the Channel tunnel. The area has been carefully landscaped and is a blaze of wildflowers in the spring and summer. Early spider orchids can be seen from late April into May. Ground nesting meadow pipits and skylarks breed here. Wonderful walks. Sea Angling available. Samphire Hoe is owned by Eurotunnel and managed in partnership with White Cliffs Countryside Project..
