Places to stay in Broadstairs

Ramsgate and Margate are two of the most popular tourist destinations on the Kent coast, but nestled between the two is the picturesque town of Broadstairs. Beautiful Blue Flag beaches are ideal for the family, while the coastal walks are some of the best the Kent coast has to offer. But the town itself is more than just a servant of the sea - the narrow cobbled streets with nooks and alleyways offer an abundance of charm and much to discover, while the view over Broadstairs was regularly enjoyed by Charles Dickens as he wrote some of his most famous works.

Five Free Things To Do In Broadstairs

A day at the beach
The beautiful Blue Flag beaches of Broadstairs are just over the promenade from the town itself, and are the perfect setting for some family fun or a bit of relaxing in the sun.

Explore the town
You could spend a whole afternoon marvelling at the Victorian architecture and quaint cobbled streets which make up the centre of town - the narrow alleyways hide all kinds of secrets.

Discover Dickens
Revered author Charles Dickens spent his summers at Fort House on the hill above Broadstairs. You can walk the gardens of what is now known as Bleak House - renamed after the novel it inspired - and maybe enjoy some inspiration of your own.

Take a coastal walk
The Kent coast is renowned for its beautiful chalk cliffs, and a short walk to Botany Bay is a great way to take it all in - with the added bonus of a secluded beach at the end.

St Peter's
Free guided tours are available around the historic village and churchyard of St Peter's, which boasts a wealth of history - including sites used during the Napoleonic wars.
