Attraction details
Owner description: 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.

Just finished a village tour. It was a lovely experience with enthusiastic people telling about the life of the village from medieval time to the last war. Plenty to see about the village and church with lots of atmosphere and information. Well worth a visit if you are in the area.

I cannot praise the tour highly enough! Whether you are a visitor or a local to Broadstairs & St.Peter's, with family or on your own, this is a light-hearted and hugely entertaining stroll back in time. And so different to the usual (and often boring) guided tours where you are bombarded with information and walk until your feet hurt. The group of organisers - all volunteers - bring the village history to life. And it's a couple of hours of fun!!

Fantastic afternoon tour, friendly and knowledgeable guides, 2 hours passed far too quickly.
