Trains to Broadstairs

Trains to the charming coastal town of Broadstairs run through Whitstable, Herne Bay and Margate, all the while overlooking the tranquil waters of the north Kent shoreline. It's a majestic way to enter this peaceful town - and visitors should expect to be further enchanted the minute they step from the carriage, with sweeping seascape vistas and the golden sands of Viking Bay, a mere ten minutes' walk away. The station itself dates back to 1863, and the arrival of rail soon saw Broadstairs become a popular 19th-century holiday destination for sea-seeking well-to-do Victorians tired of city life. Fans of Broadstairs are in esteemed company; Charles Dickens was a regular visitor to the town and extolled its beauty in the loveable short story, Our English Watering Place - the perfect beach read. Today, the journey is mostly taken up by commuters on the fast service to and from London Victoria. Holidays and weekends, though, see those looking to kick back at the surf and ski school near the beach, at the tidal pool and at the children's rides.
