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.

Highly recommended. Informative, innovative, and amusing. Do not miss this wonderful example of a community pulling together to produce a quality experience. The participants obviously thoroughly enjoyed themselves too! There is no charge but you will want to make a voluntary contribution of at least £4 each.

Fantastic experience to learn of St Peter's history in such a dramatic, colourful and humorous way. This group of re-enactors are most polished. Their costumes are brilliant.

Obviously it helps to have good weather which we were fortunate enough to have. The tour takes about 2.5 hours with a short stop for refreshments.

I would definitely recommend this to anyone! Very insightful into local history, keeps you entertained throughout and all the money raised solely goes back to the church and to help fund the tours, so really you're doing a good deed and having fun too!
