Broadstairs, Isle of Thanet

— 2 nights
Broadstairs is a coastal town on the Isle of Thanet in the Thanet district of east Kent, England, about 80mi east of London. Visiting Viking Bay and Joss Bay will get you outdoors. We've included these beaches for you: St Margaret-at-Cliffe and Stone Bay. Explore Broadstairs' surroundings by going to Walmer Castle and Gardens (in Walmer), Dover (Dover Castle & Dover Sea Safari) and Battle of Britain Memorial (in Capel-le-Ferne). Next up on the itinerary: take in the architecture and atmosphere at St Leonard's Church and stop by No 60 Gifts & Things.

Garden of England
Located practically in London's backyard, Kent features a lush countryside dotted with thriving farms and fruitful orchards. Popularly known as the "Garden of England" due to its extensive agriculture, Kent has historically been the focal point for invasion attempts from Europe. In a fascinating reversal, the region is now a major embarkation point for tourism to mainland Europe. This area is also the beer heartland of England, with flourishing production of world-famous Kent hops, fine ales, and award-winning local wines, all of which are a must on your list of things to do here. The long coastline includes numerous beach towns and villages, many still retaining their Victorian charm. A holiday would not be complete without a visit to the pride of Kent, its celebrated Canterbury Cathedral, the most famous religious structure in England and a World Heritage Site.
