BROADSTAIRS

Charles Dickens lived here in a castellated, clifftop holiday home which he renamed Bleak House, and it was here that he wrote ‘David Copperfield’.


While the Anglo Saxons noted that Broadstairs was a ‘broad place’ the town probably derives its name from a set of steps cut into the cliffs in the 15th century. These may have inspired John Buchan’s famous book ‘The Thirty Nine Steps’.

The town’s popularity as a resort began during the Regency period and it has never lost its English seaside charm. As well as exhilarating clifftop walks it possesses no less than seven sandy bays. Broadstairs is also close to Botany Bay Beach.  This is a beautiful sandy beach which is cleaned daily and has life guard cover from mid June to September.
