The South East England region
Kent has a haven of traditional English countryside.With rolling hills, wooded valleys and far reaching open landscapes you will be spoilt for choice for a summer picnic spot or crisp autumnal stroll.
If you visit Kent would not be complete without taking the time to appreciate the famous tales of Canterbury and Rochester and paying a visit to some of the towns and villages sitting at the heart of the county. For a more active way to unwind, Kent’s 12 blue flag beaches offer many opportunities to take part in water sports.
Broadstairs is a coastal town on the Isle of Thanet in east Kent, England, about 80 miles (130 km) south-east of London. It is one of Thanet's seaside resorts, known as the "Jewel in Thanet's crown". The town lies above a harbour with cliffs on either side. It has seven bays of golden sand, which are Dumpton Gap, Louisa Bay, Viking Bay, Stone Bay, Joss Bay, Kingsgate Bay and Botany Bay. Broadstairs has a very mild maritime climate.
Broadstairs is a wonderful mixture of Victorian architecture, hidden cobbled squares, cliff top walks and sandy beaches. Our shops still offer a personal service with a range of goods and gifts that independent stores do so well. Delicatessens and local butchers: bakers and grocers; unique clothes, gifts, books, antiques and even a Teddy Bear hospital.
Broadstairs is not only a summer resort but a great place to spend time in the winter. With Halloween events and firework displays through out the local area and beyond it's a good time to have break away from home. The Viking Trail is a good enough reason in itself to visit Broadstairs, a cycling and walking route showing the best of Kent's coastline. A Coast for all Seasons!
The summer holidays may have slipped away, but our coast is still lively and open for inspirational fun at great attractions. Get a cultural fix at Turner Contemporary, or immerse yourself in compelling World War II history at the Spitfire and Hurricane Memorial Museum – all for free.
