Broadstairs – a seaside town combining a mix of Victorian semis, retirement apartments and large cliff top family homes.
Broadstairs is home to some of the best sandy beaches in the county of Kent. Known as the Jewel in Thanet’s Crown, it combines a seaside town with its own pier and bric-a-brac shops, with a big selection of supermarkets and restaurants in Westwood Cross.
Originally a fishing development, the population of this town is now around 25,000.
Trains run from Broadstairs to London Victoria in just under 2hours and to London St Pancras in 1hour 20minutes.
The Thanet Loop bus system runs extremely regularly, taking you to all the neighbouring areas of Broadstairs.
Broadstairs has no shortage of beaches, and the best surfing beach in England but it also has much history to offer. From Fort Houses and a Tower Museum, plus shrines to Dickins and numerous festivals every summer, there is an eclectic mix of activities.
Westwood Cross is the largest shopping destination in the area, with shops, restaurants, a casino and a cinema.
There is a selection of primary schools in Broadstairs, rated as Outstanding. If these are over-subscribed then there are several, equally good options in neighbouring Ramsgate or Margate. Dane Court Grammar School rates very highly as a secondary school and Wellesley House and Haddon Dene are independent options.
If you are moving to Broadstairs then you will find several estate agents around Westwood Cross and the station. For other services you may need to venture into Ramsgate or explore the support available on PropertyHeads.
