Itinerary

Description

Join us on a hassle-free trip to Folkestone, where our harbourside hotel offers everything from sparkling entertainment and a relaxing leisure club to a fabulous bar offer. From our base here we meander along the Kent coast and visit several seaside towns, including picturesque Broadstairs and Margate. Beloved for their retro atmospheres, nostalgic attractions, sandy bays and sticks of rock galore, these resorts are the perfect trip down memory lane for those who miss childhood holidays! With everything taken care of, this is a wonderful chance to enjoy some sea air and explore coastal Kent in friendly company.

Itinerary

Included Excursions

Broadstairs & Whitstable (half day)

The nostalgic resort of Broadstairs awaits on our first included excursion. Boasting seven different beaches, it’s the perfect spot for paddling! Expect beach huts, a traditional promenade and a charming harbour in the popular Viking Bay, overlooked by Bleak House, where Charles Dickens wrote David Copperfield. At the southern end of the picturesque beach there is even a cliff-side lift to avoid the steep climb up to the town! Next is Whitstable, a picturesque fishing and harbour town on the north coast of Kent, renowned for its fresh oysters and connections to Charles Dickens. Enjoy the delicious seafood here, discover Whitstable Castle and Gardens or find out more about the town at Whitstable Community Museum and Gallery. 

Sandwich & Margate (half day)

Today we take in the best of the Kent coastline, starting with the historic town of Sandwich. Once a major port, there are still many original medieval buildings dotted around this enchanting town, making it a delight to stroll around or simply watch the world go by from one of the lovely restaurants and cafés. We continue on to the charming coastal town of Margate with its unspoilt sandy bays, retro shops and friendly atmosphere. As Margate is also home to a thriving arts community, you may like to browse the Turner Contemporary, a beautiful gallery overlooking the sea.


Optional Excursion

Canterbury – £12pp (full day)

Our optional excursion takes us to the beautiful city of Canterbury, with its quaint cobbled lanes, timber-framed buildings and medieval city walls. It is also home to the oldest cathedral in England, dating back to Norman times, which features awe-inspiring architecture and contains one of England’s largest collections of early medieval stained glass.
