Local Attractions for Open Events

Stokes Bay is located within easy reach of the following attractions.

Promenade The promenade stretches along the entire length of Stokes Bay from Browndown to Gilkicker Forts.  Although the forts are no longer open to the public, the outside of these buildings are still an interesting reminder of early sea defences.  Grass fields adjoin much of the walk and this is a very popular spot for dog walking or ball games.
