About Broadstairs

Visit South Lodge - Broadstairs, Kent

Broadstairs is a coastal town on the Isle of Thanet in East Kent, England, 76 miles east of London with a population of about 22,000. Situated between Margate and Ramsgate, it is one of the seaside resorts on the Isle of Thanet, known as the "Jewel in Thanet's crown". The town crest motto is 'Stella Maris - Star of the Sea'.

As a civil parish, it includes the St. Peter's area and is known as Broadstairs and St. Peters. This was derived from the "broadstairs" carved in the chalk cliff, that led from the sands to the 12th century shrine of St Mary situated above the cliffs. The town spreads from Poorhole Lane in the west (named from the mass graves dating from the Black Death) to Kingsgate in the north (named after the landing of King Charles II in 1683) and to Dumpton in the south.
