Broadstairs is rightly known as `the jewel in Thanet's crown'. This most easterly, quintessentially English seaside resort exudes much charm. Its sandy beaches provide wonderful opportunities for family bathing. Late Regency and more predominantly Victorian or Edwardian buildings reflect growth following railway expansion. Historically, the town's name was linked to broad stairs which were cut into steep cliffs above its shoreline, leading to an ancient religious shrine. A fishing village with smuggling activities is all that existed in Georgian times. By 1815 it was here that the exultant news of victory at Waterloo first reached our country. Later in the nineteenth century Charles Dickens frequented the borough. There are two museums relating to his life and great works. Festivals marking his visits along with food fetes enliven summer gaiety. All these vivid scenes are pictured within this collection of scenes, past and present. They are a colourful illustration of how time has kindly preserved and simply enhanced this Kentish gem.
