    Sheltered bay that is well loved and used by residents and visitors all year round.

    Hotels, ice cream parlours, cafes, amusement arcade, small pier, all the things that remind you of the idealised seaside experience.

    This is one of several adjacent bays, so you can easily walk to ay of the adjoining bays, with beach huts and even a tidal saltwater swimming pool.

    Three different parts of our extended family have now moved and settled in Broadstairs.

    We walked from Margate to Broadstairs and got the train back, this was one of the stops. Loved the row of beachuts - do walk down to the shore line and along them all as all painted differently and lovely to look at up close.

    Lovely little seaside bay with a shop and toilets.
    Great chalk cliffs and a lovely place to walk the dog.
    Good on street parking at the top of the hill with a slightly difficult incline down to the beach.
    Nice place to spend an afternoon at the seaside

    My adult family, their partners, my wife and I visited this charmingly local museum to an international figure. Don't expect whizzy interactive artifacts and learning opportunities, this is a collection of things donated to well-meaning enthusiasts - most have something to do with Dickens, but there are also Quite Interesting artefacts about Broadstairs and the period. It also houses an expansive collection of cartoons of characters from Dickens' books and serials.

    Blustery afternoon walk along cliffs at Viking Bay. A flat walk, well paved, so easily accessible for prams/wheelchairs. Lovely views over the bay and backward to the ornate buildings behind. Would recommend if visiting Broadstairs.

    Having seen a beautiful glasswork in the window I got in touch with the artist Vicki who had just finished something similar - it was the perfect present for my daughter. So beautiful and unique and something to have forever. A constant memory of swimming in Viking Bay. Thanks so much Vicki.

    We booked to come here for our valentine's meal out as we thought it sounded like a good night out. The advert said we would have a Michael Buble tribute and the menu looked good. Also, free £10.00 worth of vouchers to spend on the tables.
    Dinner was lovely. We ordered a slow cooked brisket with mash. I had cheesecake to follow and my husband had waffles and ice cream. We also received a free glass of bubbly. I won £5.00 on the table but we dont gamble so didnt spend any more than the vouchers. Sadly, Muchael Buble tribute didnt show despite us waiting around for an hour longer than he was due to show which was a little disappointing. But would come again as good value for £20.00 per person.

    This is a very beautiful old church with stunning ceiling paintings, glistening stained glass windows and a huge cemetery with many interesting old grave monuments. There is a free car park opposite for ease of parking. Recommend timing your visit during May to September for the Village Tour.

    Stop and see. The building construction is so interesting. Medieval style and I am sure it is as old. The town it is not big, but super cute and easy to see all the landmarks.

    I'm not local to East Kent, but from Berkshire on hols. I discovered Gadd's No5 best bitter at the Ship Inn, Deal. Great beer in a great pub. I just had to visit the Ramsgate brewery that afternoon to taste the rest of their products, and buy some to take back. I enjoyed a very hospitable beer fan chat with Eddy, over generous tasters. Eyes left - bubbling oak barrels of gueuze - get in! The 10% Imperial Russian Stout 2014 brought out from the depths of the warehouse and tasted back home is a 10/10 beer. Joy. Jeff. June 2019.

    Another great show by Merry Opera. They really bring shows to life and present with energy and humour. Theatre is small but provides an intimate space for this kind of production. Singers/actors excellent.... as were the Pianist and violinist. Staff/volunteers who run the theatre and helpful and friendly. Parking available in local streets and a car park just a few minutes away.
