Kent

Main dogging sites and directions for Kent, including major towns and cities: Maidstone, Canterbury, Bromley, Rochester, Margate, Folkestone, Dover and Greenwich.

Broadstairs
Joss Bay, near Broadstairs is very good late evening. Lots of dogging action viewing here.
Chilham
The carpark at entrance to Chilham-toilet which is open all night. Some gays, some couples.
Dover
The car-park on top of the cliffs, overlooking Eastern Docks. At night, go past the toll booth and take the left up into coach park. Good dogging and exhibitionism and nice views too!
Isle of Sheppey
Leysdown Naturists beach and car park. Drive onto the Isle of Sheppy. Follow signs to Leysdown. Through town, follow the coast road until it appears to end. Turn left down the unmade road. Over the hump. Park up. Over the grass bank is the naturist beach. Both the beach and car park can get "interesting" later in the day.
Maidstone
Cobtree Manor Country Park near Maidstone. Used to be very good last year then went quiet due to the boys in blue. But it is now becoming very active again. It is also a good gay cruising spot.
Oxleas Woods
In the car park near the cafe in Oxleas Woods, which is the top of shooters hill. Directions are as follows for those who do not know the area, look on Multimap and type in Kenilworth Gardens (Greenwich) which is off Shooters Hill, on the South East London/Kent Borders. Turn left into Kenilworth Gardens and left again down the drive to the car park. Best suggestion is to park on the far left hand side, on the grass area which is just off the car park, near the wooded area. Good couples dogging action here, a well kept secret (until now!). For more info and also help with organising dogging meets at this location email Martin and his lady friend.Update: the carpark near the cafe on Shooters Hill is closed @ night, although the one further down is OK, with entrance next to Woods/School.
Rochester
Lay-by just before the new bypass on Gravesend Road near Strood, the A226. Action most nights after 11pm.
St. Mildred's & Westbrook
Beach car-park between St. Mildreds & Westbrook. Participation with dogging couples there sometimes.
Shooters Hill
The first carpark up Shooters Hill from Greenwich (Oxleas Woods, see above for full info). Some couples having daytime affairs.
Shoreham Woods
Shoreham woods near Junction 4 of M25 is a good place, fairly quiet but some couples action. Shoreham woods ( Brown picnic signs ) located off A224. Leave M25 @ J4 up to first r/bout, sharp left on to A224 to Halstead/Badgers Mount. 2 miles to first r/bout, turn left into small country lane. Shoreham woods on right set back off road. If you end up going back under M25 you have missed it! During the day this is a well frequented "normal" picnic site with kids & couples really walking their dogs etc. However by night this has got to be the best Kent dogging site! It is set back off the road, so mainbeam brigade have to negotiate a winding approach road which does not illuminate the whole area as there are loads of recessed parking bays. There are woods nearby for the outdoor types who like their dogging action au natural. Even picnic benches so you can avoid the damp grass! A Doggers paradise.
Dover, Western Heights
Above the cruise terminal follow signs for folkestone then western heights, up a windy hill (past European freight depot) car park on the right as you go up and a pinic area just round the corner on the left, also some old ruins.
University of kent, canterbury
eliot footpath, drive up through the car park, campus security tend to leave you alone
