Having never visited this area of Kent before we were left astounded by the beauty of this glorious town which is set on a clifftop above Viking Bay. Looking down from the cliff you get a spectacular view of the bay as it curves round the sea with it’s golden sands.There are many cafes to chose from where you can take in the scenery while enjoying a bite to eat .We also visited Morelli’s which sells excellent ice cream.
If you tire of the sea views there are numerous other attractions to amuse you to include live music every other day at the bandstand or Lillyput mini golf, a twelve hole course which is fun to play.
Charles Dickens was a regular visitor to the area and Broadstairs provided the inspiration for many of his books. Bleak House is an hotel where you can stay or just visit for a meal.
Other buildings of note are “The old curiosity Shop ” and the Dickens Museum which is worth a visit.
The beach has a blue flag award and the sea is very inviting if you fancy a swim or even a quick paddle.
I would recommend this town to all ages as it has something for everyone to enjoy.
