Herne Bay - Kent

Herne Bay is the quintessential British seaside resort. It has everything from the shingle on the beach to the colourful beach huts all topped of with a selection of fish and chip shops.
With a backdrop of grand Victorian architecture and a pier to boot this is the perfect place to prop up the deck chair and pop on your knotted hanky.

The beach at Herne Bay is also great for families. There is sheltered bathing behind the breakwater and everything you need close at hand.
