5 Days in Broadstairs


Last week, I spent five days in Broadstairs and I decided to document the experience having never been there before. Overall, I had a lovely time and definitely would go there again.

Day 1:

We travelled to Broadstairs by car because it was only three hours journey from where I live. For the days we stayed, we booked a house called Horizon View about five minutes walk from the sea front. The house was situated at the end of the road and looked incredibly cosy. What do you think of the interior and exterior?

After dropping our bags off at the house and settling in, we decided to explore the local area.

I don’t know how I got this perfect picture of this seagull; it looks so stern!

I love the boats we saw at the seafront, they looked so adorable sitting at the shore!

I loved the beach huts on the beach, one day maybe I will buy one?

I spied this garden near Bleak House (yes, the Charles Dickens Bleak House), and I had to just take a picture!

This is engraved on the side of Bleak House, is it just me or does his expression make you feel ashamed for whatever reason?

We decided to have Fish and Chips for Dinner here.

The interior has such a chip shop feel, I absolutely loved it.

The portions were so huge; I didn’t finish mine!

The beach looked so beautiful, and even more beach huts!

Day 2:

In the morning, we needed to get some essentials but in the afternoon we went to Margate.

We first went to the Turner Contemporary Gallery and had a look round.

I loved this place, especially the prints in one of the exhibitions.

We then went to a vintage theme park called Dreamland which I thought from researching the area appeared amazing and I was not disappointed!

We went on two rides: Born Slippy and the Big Wheel.

After a shaky start from going really slowly, this ride was very enjoyable.

 

Despite the long queue, the views from the air were so worth it. It stopped at the top though and all I can say is just don’t peer down!

As we were rushed for time, we only went on two rides. Upon leaving, we decided to go to the arcade inside the main building. I spent some money, unfortunately not winning anything.

These houses are so cute and beach-like!

We decided to have a sandwich in a cafe.

I had a smoked salmon, cream cheese and rocket sandwich.

I bought three badges from this shop, Frank.

Which is your favourite?

We also went to Herne Bay and saw the pier and the beach there.

Looks picturesque and fun? Too right!

I didn’t go on the merry-go-round, however, I did go on the helter-skelter and it was made me smile and laugh so much.

I bought an ice cream from this stall except I didn’t take a picture!

On the way home, we visited Reculver Castle.

Day 4:

For the day, we decided to go to Dungeness. The weather and atmosphere was so divine and the beach we investigated was simply wonderful.

The lighthouse was visible from ages away and was an attractive sight.

The beach was such a marvel to gaze upon and all the random pieces on it really added a special feel to it.

We also saw Derek Jarman’s house (this picture was taken on the other side of the road so not to invade the privacy of the current occupants of the house).

To finish off we had a local ice cream from this place.

Day 5:

Today we went to Canterbury and had a look round.

We bought our Mum’s birthday present from this shop called Wrapped. It was so cute!

We decided to have lunch in Carluccio’s and I had my usual Penne Giardiano.

After lunch, we visited the cathedral.

We also had a look round the local museum and library.

Although we didn’t spend as much time in Broadstairs as we would have liked, I enjoyed visiting another part of England. I think that I saw everything that I would have wanted to see and loved every minute of the experience.

Broadstairs and the surrounding areas I think are so interesting having explored them; there are literally endless attractions to visit.

I hope you enjoyed reading a different type of post and I look forward to writing another one of these. I am travelling to Holland at the end of June for a long weekend and we are going to lots of exciting places and doing lots of exciting things so I think I am going to document the experience as well.
