Viking Bay in Broadstairs Kent is a popular seaside town made even more famous due to the fact that it was the favourite holiday destination of Charles Dickens. Dickens loved the place so much he leased a huge house on the clifftop overlooking the beach and the sea where he gazed down onto Viking Bay and wrote his novel David Copperfield. The house has since been renamed Bleak House in his honour.
There's more to Viking Bay than Charles Dickens however and as you will see Broadstairs offers holidaymakers and day visitors so much. Whether it's a nice quiet peaceful beach walk from the harbour to the famous Broadstairs beach lift, or whether it's a rowdy pub crawl in one of the many Viking Bay pubs this place has it all. This Broadstairs Guide video will show you round the place
I think the beach, the old town, Bleak House, the Charles Dickens references everywhere can certainly pleasantly surprise any first time visitor to Broadstairs Kent.
