Kent Beaches

Broadstairs is a tranquil old resort town 78 miles from London and only 15 from medieval Canterbury, a place to experience old-style, traditional British beach-going, complete with donkey rides, live bands [brass bands, not the modern racket made by surly long-hairs, damn their girly looks] and fireworks in summertime. Old fashioned it is, but Broadstairs still offers fine, large beaches [Viking Bay is the big one but another six are available if space runs out] with soft sand, Blue Flag waters and an air of timeless gentility that is missing from neighbouring Ramsgate or Margate.
