About St Peter's Village Tour
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.

Initially thought that 2 and a half hours would be much to long. At the end of 3 hours could have happily have gone on for longer. Really well organised and led afternoon tour. Introduced to the historical figures through the ages with each giving us an insight into life in St Peters. All the characters were great and could happily have stayed with each for much longer but the 5 to 10 minute stops kept us briskly moving along. Lyn was a great local guide and ensured we had a very pleasant afternoon. Would thoroughly recommend it.

Wonderful sunny afternoon spent wandering around St Peters meeting local characters from the past. As the last tour of the season it was extremely popular. The tour was well organised from the online booking system, characters performances, refreshment break halfway round and the opportunity at the end to meet the organisers and ask questions. Some people had travelled quite a distance to attend the tour, from Ashford and London, others were locals like myself who had heard of the tour but never been before. It is definitely something I will consider bringing visitors to in the future. I saw parts of St Peters I never knew existed and learnt lots of interesting facts. All of the characters played their parts well and I particularly enjoyed the banter between the three in the stocks, very funny! I would definitely recommend the tour to locals and visitors.

What an interesting, funny and enjoyable way to spend a Saturday morning. This tour had been on my to do list for ages and I'm so glad we finally got there. A little band of very enthusiastic and informed volunteers kept us entertained as we were lead around the village by our friendly guide Linda. Great fun.

A really fun few hours learning about the history of St Peter’s village. The characters are great and make it much more entertaining. Our guide was absolutely wonderful! We went with a 3 year and old and 1 year old and they liked to too.

Fascinating historical tour that comes to life with interactive Actors telling the stories. Definitely should be on a to do list when visiting the area.
