                      were fishermen & the others had no visible means of

                      support. Barnaby's Lodge was just one of

                      those cottages used by the smugglers. The beauty of

                      Broadstairs is not only stunning beaches, but a vast

                      mixture of shops, galleries, museums, & shows.

                      An excellent selection of pubs, restaurants, bistros & take aways you

                      can experience; Italian, Mexican, Indian, Thai, Chinese, or traditional

                      English food all within easy distance from your choice of

                      accommodation.

                      If shopping is your pleasure, drive out to the new shopping centre at

                      Westwood Cross, just five minutes away, where you will find the large

                      department stores, or visit Historical Canterbury which is only 30

                      minutes away by car or train. The town is served well by bus, road &

                      rail.

                      If you enjoy the outdoor life, then experience a Viking Coastal Trail.

                      Winding your way through beaches, historic villages to where the

                      history of England really began!

                      The charm & heritage of Broadstairs has captivated generations of visitors, with popular events which are celebrated with great enthusiasm such as Dickens Week.

                      A colourful array of characters in period costumes re-enact the old days & bring history alive by one of England’s greatest writers Charles Dickens.

                      Another example is Folk Week, where the whole town comes alive &

                      bursts into music, dancing, & torchlight parades, bringing visitors from

                      all over the world. Folk Week celebrated its 40th anniversary in 2005.

                      Other attractions also include: Water Gala, Air Show, Sailing Regatta,

                      Horse Shows, Beer & Food Festivals, Power Boat Show plus so much

                      more, something for the whole family, whatever your age.

                      Relax & enjoy the view of the harbour, from the Bandstand with live

                      music where you can see the fishermen setting off to make their living

                      on the high seas of the English Channel.
