    Bradstow?

    by Jenniflower Written Jun 17, 2007

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: In the olden days, Broadstairs was called Bradstow.

    It was originally a fishing village of note and has a close association with St Peters, a picturesque village further inland.

    It's current name comes from the 'broad stairs' that are seemingly carved out of the chalk cliff there.

    A lovely town, with character and charm!

    The beach

    by Jenniflower Updated Jun 17, 2007

    Favorite thing: Sand is brown but at least it IS sand, not pebbles. As a South African, this makes a lot of difference!

    Weather was cold and drizzly, but the mood was good!

    We went on a miserable day and so there werent any bathers about, but I would imagine that this beach would be choc-a-bloc in good weather!

    The people were friendly and welcoming :)

    Walking Broadstairs

    by Jenniflower Written Jun 17, 2007

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: How do you get to know a place?

    Walk it.

    I look forward to walking it again, and more thoroughly!

    Broadstairs is a little like Fish Hoek, my home town in South Africa. Although vastly different in many ways, they both are not heavily commercialised, and hold some tradition... are maybe a little backwards in going forwards perhaps?? ;) I love it!

    They are also both easily walkable and you get to see and experience a lot mroe by doing this.
