Kent is the Garden of England and our extensive coastline boasts an array of blue flag award winning beaches and thrilling watersports. Explore our beautiful countryside, discover country lanes, orchards, vineyards and oast houses. England's oldest county is up to the minute though, with leading edge galleries, theatre and entertaining night life giving you so many things to do. Kent boasts outstanding golf clubs, including the famous St Georges at Sandwich.
A stroll around Broadstairs is a journey of discovery with a lovely surprise around every corner. Our most famous resident was Charles Dickens who spent much time here, writing many of his classic novels here. Visit the Dickens Museum and watch out for costumed characters during our annual Dickens Week (June )!
Walk around the Thanet coastline to explore our beautiful beaches and bays, each with its own character. Broadstairs' main beach is the unspoilt Viking Bay, no more than a few minutes' walk away from the Boat House, where you can still see much of Broadstairs' Victorian heritage. Viking bay has a small harbour with cafes and giftshops, with plenty of rockpools for crabbing and exploring. An old fashioned beach funfair complete with helter skelter and swingboats, and a traditional punch and judy show twice a day in high season means that there's plenty to keep everyone entertained. The Pavilion offers beachside drinks and lunches and you don't have to walk far to find fish and chips to eat on the beach!
Although Broadstairs has kept much of its old fashioned charm and tranquility, we have a vibrant calendar of events ranging from the annual Dickens Festival (June), Water Gala (June) and Folk Week (Aug) to a great free summer entertainment programme with a weekly firework display during the school summer holidays.Broadstairs also hosts its own annual Food Festival Sept/ Oct, featuring local producers and restaurants, with free tastings and cookery demonstrations by top chefs. For full details go to www.broadstairsfoodfestival.org.
Visit Ramsgate's Royal Harbour for a taste of the Mediterranean (on a sunny day!), to take out a boat for seal watching or sea fishing, or just to watch the boats from its many cafes and bars.

"5* Family fun in Broadstairs"
We had a fabulous time staying at St George's Retreat. The house itself is lovely, beautifully decorated but created for a family so you feel you can relax. There's plenty of space on the ground floor for children to play and adults too, with a great kitchen that backs into the garden. The bedrooms were all very comfortable , with the loft extension definitely supplying the wow factor! We were 2 families of 4 adults and 3 kids and there was plenty of room for us all. Janette has been very communicative and sent lots of useful information on Broadstairs , with ideas for food and family days out. Broadstairs itself is a great quirky seaside resort, particularly good with young children as everything is in walking distance.Lovely sandy beaches and family friendly cafés and restaurants. And if you're in the mood for a bit of culture then a day trip to the Turner Contemporary is a must, amazing venue and work. And a bonus was the fireworks for the Broadstairs water gala. Highly recommended!

"Stunningly designed home at the seaside"
We stayed at St George's Retreat as a family with 4 teenagers and elderly parents. It suited us all!
My parents were able to walk to the front for a coffee and a mooch whilst the energetic teenagers visited local surf beaches or chilled in the stunning house.
The decor is eclectic and charming and the master suite in the loft is akin to a design hotel!
We stayed during Folk week and enjoyed the festival atmosphere.
A great place to visit!
