Explore Thanet Kent:
"We have a fine sea, wholesome for all people, profitable for the body, profitable for the mind ... the boats are dancing on the bubbling water, the colliers are afloat again, the white bordered waves rush in, the children do chase the ebbing Neptune ... all the sea is sparkling, heaving, swelling up with life and beauty this bright morning."
Charles Dickens, from "Our English Watering Place" describing Broadstairs.
"My Dear Miss Allan.
....don't forget to remind your iron uncle of our Broadstairs engagement, to which I hold you bound. A good sea – fresh breezes – fine sands – and pleasant walks – with all manner of fishing boats. Light houses, piers, bathing machines and so forth are its only attractions, but it's one of the fresh and free-est little places in the worlds. Consequently the proper place for you."
Charles Dickens, from a letter written to a friend on the 3rd July 1841 from the Royal Hotel, describing Broadstairs.
