Description: The St Peter's Village Tour offers four free award winning guided walks...
The St Peter's Village Tour offers four free award winning guided walks around the historic village and churchyard of St Peter's, Broadstairs in Kent. The Tours are arranged by a team of 110 volunteers.During the walking tour with your guide, you will meet many costumed characters from past centuries. You will see the flint built church and find out a little more about its long history. You will hear of conditions in the workhouse, the Newbolts breakfast concerts for hundreds of fashionable people, the tower used in the Napoleonic wars, famous (and infamous) local residents and our ancient seat of local government for the area.The tour is conducted in groups of around ten and covers less than a mile of flat walking, but does involve standing for a number of 5 minute presentations. It includes a break for tea or coffee (although no break on evening tours, or wet weather tours). You are advised to allow two and a half hours for your tour. In very wet weather we provide an Inclement weather Routine. Access for visitors with disabilities. Children are very welcome on our tour. We would however, suggest a minimum age of 10 years to fully appreciate the experience. At the end of the tour you are invited to contribute towards our costs which average £4 per adult. Here at the St Peter's Village Tour we appreciate any comments you may have with regard to any of our tours and our website. We are Supported by the Broadstairs and St. Peter's Town Council and we are member of the Broadstairs Tourism and Leisure Association.

A really enjoyable and informative tour of a little known part of Broadstairs. The tour is very well organised and information is provided by guides who dress in character for people in the 19th century. It is all very realistic and everyone works extremely hard to ensure that visitors have an enjoyable experience. There is an interval half way round... More

An outstanding tour - it seems hard to believe that this is a village voluntary group (what community spirit). You deserve all the accolades you receive. Every stage of the walk was enjoyable as well as informative for us and our 7 year's old Grandson. History came alive for him and he especially enjoyed being actively involved with the stocks...

We've been on many London Walks and this was cheaper and more fun. It seemed that every pensioner in the village had dressed up in period costume or was involved in some way and there must have been some ex-actors or an amateur dramatic society involved. The walk was entirely manned by volunteers, was very well organised and many of... More

We saw this walk advertised and didn't know what to expect. We were certainly glad we went on it. It was educational with its history and entertainment - very interesting and often amusing.
