The village of Manston is situated at the edge of the town of Ramsgate in Kent. It is centrally located on the Isle of Thanet which is surround by coast. This part of the Kent coast is frequently sunny and seems to have its own weather system. Known for its lovely sandy beaches and historic coastal villages, Thanet is the perfect place for a relaxing sea side holiday, or an energetic sporting one, whether you prefer windsurfing, kayaking, jet skiing or just playing in the sand!
It's also perfectly located for a day trip to London or France, or if you prefer to shop or explore closer to home, the historic cities of Canterbury, Dover and Folkestone are only a 30 to 45 minute drive away. And the lovely historic village of Sandwich - know for the Golf Open which is held there every 4 years, has lovely cobbled streets and pretty old fashioned shops which seem to have come out of the last century. The village of Wingham close by, many parts of which date back to the 13th Century, is also worth a visit with its characterful old fashioned pubs, hat shops, art galleries and cafes and churches. There are so many historic towns and villages only a short drive from Thanet, you will have to come back again and again to see them all.
There are lots of free events during the year in Thanet, from Dickens Week in July and Folk Week in August both in Broadstairs, to international volley ball tournaments on the beach at Margate, just to mention a few. You can see exactly what's going on locally when you go to the Visit Thanet website. And for something quite spectacular you can even watch the Red Arrows do their air display at Margate from almost anywhere in Thanet, and if you don't see them you can certainly hear them! And you can take a closer look at the planes when they are parked at Manston Airport where they frequently practice before the event. Why not come and see for yourself.
