Herne Bay Cottages
Herne Bay is a lovely seaside town located on the north Kent coast. In the past the town was a port of call for sea faring travellers making their traveling back and forth between the Thames Estuary and around destinations around the South East coast such as Dover. As the nineteenth century made way for fashionable Victorian seaside resorts the town became a popular haven. With its close proximity to London and the introduction of steam boats and locomotives, Herne Bay soon became a popular holiday resort.
Herne Bay is still a popular seaside destination today. The town itself retains many of its period and Victorian features, with very little development or alteration in recent years. There are some beautiful examples of Victorian town houses, quaint and traditional fishermen's cottages, and charming little features such as the Victorian clock tower which can be found along the promenade. The clock tower was built in 1837 and is one of the world's first (if not the first!) purpose built clock towers of its kind.
A holiday in this area is a great mix of a traditional seaside holiday with easy access to London and other popular destinations nearby. Herne Bay is within easy reach of the historic city of Canterbury, the popular destination of Whitstable, and is about an hour and a half away from central London by train. There is plenty to do in this area, but with the beautiful coastline, and Kent countryside nearby you will certainly feel relaxed after a holiday here!
