What a cute place! Sandy and sheltered with traditional beach huts, a large selection of good places to eat and drink nearby and full of photo opportunities. Fantastic for a traditional day out and a step back in time.

I loved the horse-shoe shape of Viking Bay and the beach was clean and a pleasure to walk on. The promenade area (with Morrelli's and the Dickens House Museum) is also highly recommended!

We loved it. Broadstairs was a wonderful surprise. We were out for a holiday drive and happened across Broadstairs. It was so nice walking around the town, the beach and waterfront. We struggled to find somewhere to buy an ice cream but that was a small thing. It was such a nice day.

The sky wS amazing massive clouds and stunning sun rays colouring the sea. Love the sea weed covered sand, the amazing Victorian houses up on the town heights. Broadstairs retains old... More

The beach was clean and tidy. Plenty on fresh air for the time of the year. Best time of the year to go walking on the beach. Well done Broadstairs.

After holidaying in Broadstairs as a small child, coming back to visit brought back fond memories and I was pleased to see this beautiful promenade and beach has stood still in time. Bleak House up on the cliff, the steep stairs down to the beach where once Punch & Judy could be observed from a great viewpoint and hopefully in... More
