  • Broadstairs

    Broadstairs is a coastal town on the Isle of Thanet. About 80 miles (130 km) south-east of London. It is part of the civil parish of Broadstairs and St Peter's, which includes St. Peter's. Situated between Margate and Ramsgate, Broadstairs is one of Thanet's seaside resorts, known as the "Jewel in Thanet's crown". The town's crest motto is Stella Maris ("Star of the Sea"). The name derives from a former flight of steps in the chalk cliff, which led from the sands up to the 11th-century shrine of St Mary on the cliff's summit.
    The town spreads from Haine Road in the west to Kingsgate in the north (named after the landing of King Charles II in 1683) and to Dumpton in the south (named after the yeoman Dudeman who farmed there in the 13th century). The hamlet of Reading (formerly Reden or Redyng) Street was established by Flemish refugees in the 17th century.
  • Crampton Tower Museum

    The Crampton Tower Museum is a fascinating small museum is partly housed in a flint tower adjacent to the Broadstairs Railway Station. The tower formed part of the first Broadstairs public water supply and was put in repair by Thanet District Council.
  • Kingsgate Castle

    Kingsgate Castle on the cliffs above Kingsgate Bay, Broadstairs, Kent was built for Lord Holland (Henry Fox, 1st Baron Holland) in the 1760s. The name Kingsgate is related to an incidental landing of Charles II on 30 June 1683 ("gate" referring to a cliff-gap) though other English monarchs have also used this cove, such as George II in 1748. The building was later the residence of John Lubbock, 1st Baron Avebury. The building has now been converted into 31 flats.
  • Quex Park

    Established in the 19th Century by John Powell Powell and his successors, Quex Park is an historic country estate of over 1,800 acres in Birchington-on-Sea on the stunning Kent coast near Margate. The Park is an oasis of parkland and trees in a Thanet landscape of open topography and urban development. Quex Park is a haven for birdlife and many different species are frequently seen hovering in the sky over the Estate and the surrounding areas, which is still farmed today. Like many traditional country estates, the profitability of farming alone was not able to provide for the upkeep of the various historic buildings and parkland. As a result the Estate has diversified its many redundant and outdated agricultural buildings.

  • St Nicholas - at - Wade

    St Nicholas-at-Wade (or St Nicholas) is both a village and a civil parish in the Thanet District of Kent, England. The village of Sarre is part of the civil parish.

    The village is best known locally for the local custom of Hoodening, a type of mumming, as well as for its prolific potato production.
    The name derives from its location on the western border of the Isle of Thanet (originally separated from the Kent mainland). Before the channels of the River Wantsum and River Stour silted up, one would have been able to 'wade' at this point, over a ford. In Roman times the channel was navigable and the site likely very busy with the Saxon Shore Forts of Regulbium (Reculver) and Rutupiae (Richborough) both close by. Remains of Roman shipbuilding yards are said to have been found between St. Nicholas-at-Wade and the nearby village of Sarre.
