Can you think of a more iconic building in Deal than The Royal? Perched on the edge of the beach, it has borne witness to the comings and goings of this tempestuous stretch of sea for over 200 years. Richard Friend has added his magic touch to create a modern day interpretation of the building, cloaked by the starry sky and basking in the glow of the full moon.
