Year R, 1 and 2 visit to Broadstairs (Viking Bay)
Viking Bay is the most popular beach in the archetypal British seaside town of Broadstairs. The crescent of sand is one of Broadstairs main draws although competition is pretty stiff from other nearby beaches such as the ever popular Joss Bay.
The beach at Viking Bay has all the features you would expect from a classic seaside resort; there are changing huts, a promenade and even a pier of sorts. To the northern end of the beach is a small harbour which is home to a little fleet of fishing boats. Overlooking the harbour is Bleak House where Charles Dickens wrote David Copperfield.
A previous winner of Blue Flag awards Viking Bay has excellent facilities and in the summer a lifeguard service ensures safe bathing. As well as all the beachside shops and cafes you would need Broadstairs town is right behind you. There is even a cliff-side elevator at the southern end of the beach if you don’t fancy the climb up to town!
