Broadstairs - our gem


Explore the heritage and history of Broadstairs: seek out the quaint squares of fishermen's cottages; the arched walkway beside Bleak House, (once the summer home of Charles Dickens), and the promenade with its glorious flower beds, Dickens House and Crampton Tower and Broadstairs Town museum.

In the summer, take advantage of our Blue-Flag award sandy beaches, (some wheel chair accessible). Spoil yourself with a sundae at one of our ever-popular ice-cream parlors, popular whatever the season.

In the winter months, wrap up warmly to enjoy an invigorating walk through the park towards Ramsgate, or on the sands to Kingsgate and Margate.

Thanet District Council's "Beaches and Bays" guide is available on-line or as an app. It profiles the best spots for families, watersports, or get-away-from-it-all escapes.
Discover wheelchair-accessible bays via the Beach Within Reach scheme.

Viking Bay is accessible via a ramp in Louisa Bay or a lift (seasonal opening).A wheelchair/pushchair accessible walkway is available between the lift and the Pavilion in Harbour Street.

Parking: to enable fair access to parking for all concerned, especially during the summer months, a number of the streets have restricted parking. This takes the form of Pay and Display, Visitors Permits, and off street car parks. On the map below, off street chargeable car parks are marked in orange. Unrestricted, sea front, street parking is shown in blue.
